Sunday's Obituary: Roberta McAfee Foskey


"Beloved Lady Dies Suddenly At Her Home

 The Scott community was deeply saddened early last Friday morning by the
announcement from the home of Mr. Lott Foskey, prominent farmer of that
section, that his wife had suddenly passed away at the family home about 5
o'clock. She had been up previously and had carried her daily work on Thursday
but Thursday night she made a few complaints of not feeling well and did not
rest so good during the night. Early Friday morning, she told the family she
was feeling worse and in a few minutes she had died. She was a fine christian
woman, loved by everyone, and devoted her life to the home, school, church,
her friends and to her family. She was 58 and before her marriage she was a
Miss McAfee. Her husband and five children survive. Funeral services were
conducted at Bay Springs at eleven o'clock Saturday by the Rev. W. P. Cox, her
pastor, and the burial was in the Bay Springs church cemetery."
