Ruth Ann Maddox was born December 2, 1956, the beloved daughter of the late Rebecca Waldo Sligh. She departed this earthy life on Saturday, February 10, 2024, in Columbia, South Carolina.
Ruth was educated in the public schools of Richland County where she attended Howard Elementary and graduated from C. A. Johnson High School. After High School, she moved to Atlanta with her sister Thelma, and her brother Micheal. After a few years, she relocated to Alabama where she was employed with The Steel Security Plant. It was in Alabama that she fell in love and married Adolfo Maddox and to their union a son, Matthew, was born.
Ruth was loving, caring and had a beautiful soul. Though she is no longer physically with us, her loving and kind spirit will forever live in the hearts and lives of all who loved and knew her.
In addition to her parents, Ruth was also preceded in death by her husband, Adolph Maddox; her son, Matthew Maddox; sister, Thelma Owens Barns, and her brothers, Charles Waldo, Frankie and David Brown; uncles, Wiley Waldo, Jr., Uncle Jr., and Nathaniel Waldo; aunts, Frances Crumpton, Sarah Lane, Ruth Evans and Catherine Hargrove.
Those who will forever cherish fond and precious memories of Ruth are her sister, Beverly (Robert) Stroman of Columbia, SC; brothers, Micheal Owens and Smitty Owens, both of Virginia; nieces, Tiffany Stroman of Columbia, SC; Yoland Waldo of Bridgeport CT; and Tawana Marie Barnes of Atlanta, GA; nephews, Robert Stroman, Jr. of California; Jamal Waldo of Bridgeport, CT, Lawrence Barnes II of Korea; and Frankie Waldo Jr. of Columbia, SC; cousins, Peggy and Kimberly both of New York, Brenda and Missy Evans, both of Bridgeport, CT, Barbara Jean of New York, and Mary Ann and Ronnie, both of Johnston, SC; and a host of dear friends, all of whom will dearly miss her.
