Barbara Spaulding Foss, 92

WILMINGTON — Barbara Spaulding Foss, 92, lovingly known as “Memaw”, fell asleep in Jesus on October 29, 2021 at the Lower Cape Fear LifeCare Center .  Memaw was a lifelong Advent Christian having been brought up in the church by her parents, who served as Advent Christian missionaries in China; and then marrying Rev. Charles A. Foss, Jr..  They served in many churches from New England to Wilmington, ultimately making Wilmington their home where they continued to serve.

Memaw was most proud of her family:  Laura Foss Hines (Bill); Belinda Foss Hall (David); and Kevin Barry Foss (Julie).  She had 7 grandchildren:  Amanda Catherine Burke (Justin); Thomas Hines, IV (Holly); Ryan Daggett (Beckah); Russell Daggett (Tracey); Kathleen Foss; Heather Meares (Eric); Shannon Hall (Cam).

She had 10 great-grandchildren:  Zoe Evitt (Nick); Haley Evitt; Abigail Evitt (Josh); Kyla Hines; Grayson Meares; Paisley Meares; Jason Canuel, Russell Daggett, Jr, Carleigh Daggett; Jack Daggett.

She had 3 great-great grandchildren:  Meleena Rodarte (Haley); Raedin Rodarte (Haley); Maverick White (Zoe).

She leaves to cherish her memory many nieces and nephews in New England.

Memaw’s husband; two sisters, a brother; and her parents preceded her in death.

Our mother had a loving heart and would quickly testify to anyone.  She told the family before she died to love each other and serve the Lord.  

“Cast all your cares on Him, for He cares for you”.  1 Peter 5:7.

The family will have a private visitation.  Gravesite services will follow at Oleander Memorial Gardens on November 2, 2021 at 11:00 AM.  Rev. Sam Hill will preside.
