Williams (John) of Saluda; Pamela A. Smith of Oxford; and grandchildren: Mary Gayge and Keith Michael Markovich.
Marybeth was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She considered herself grandma to dozens of family dogs. Marybeth was an expert seamstress with a keen eye for detail as well as a talented cook. She was a remarkably generous individual, helping friends and their children in numerous ways. She instilled in her family a love of giving back to the community. She accomplished this by volunteering thousands of hours with St. Luke United Methodist Church’s Threads of Faith and Highway to Healing.
Her service, followed by visitation, will be held at St. Luke United Methodist Church in Sanford, NC on Thursday, July 16th, at 1pm. Her family continues to thank you for your thoughts, memories, and prayers. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Marybeth’s name to St. Luke Threads of Faith or Highway to Healing Inc.
