Mary Ruth "Ruthie" Robinson Foy, age 64, of Rose Hill passed away on Monday, November 26, 2018 surrounded by her loving family.
She was born on January 5, 1954 in Supply, NC and was the daughter of the late Archie Lee and Carrie Mae Smith Robinson. She was predeceased by her husband, Gary Foy and her sister, Barbara Robinson.
Surviving is her devoted children, Tracie Collum-Horne and husband, Jay of Rose Hill and Jack Kenneth Williamson, Jr. and wife, Greysi of Stedman; grandchildren, John Malone (Crystal), Channing Collum of Rose Hill, Jacklyn Williamson (Kelly), Mary Kaitlyn Williamson, Marissa Williamson, Gracie Williamson, Kenzie Williamson and Nayeli Williamson; great grandchildren, Alaiah Malone and John Malone, Jr.; sister, Rebecca Merritt of Wilmington; brother, Roger Robinson of Wallace and numerous extended family and friends that loved Ruthie dearly.
Ruthie, as she was affectionately called, was a loving mother, grandmother and sister. She enjoyed the simplest things in life, but her greatest joy was family. One of her favorite pastimes was playing with her grandchildren. Ruthie was a good cook and enjoyed her family coming to eat with her. She was a special lady and was loved dearly. As Ruthie spent the last few months fighting cancer, she colored her way through it. Now Ruthie is in the most colorful place of all. She will surely be missed but treasured memories of her will forever remain in the hearts of those who knew and loved her.
Funeral service will be held at 11:00am on Wednesday, November 28, 2018 at Willard Baptist Church with the Reverend David Knowles officiating.
Burial will follow at Riverview Memorial Park in Watha, NC.
Casketbearers will be Jack Williamson, David Knowles, John Malone, Michael Collum, John Williams and Jay Horne.
