Obituary for Mary Joseph Clifton Spruill
Mary Clifton Spruill passed away Tuesday, March 28, 2017, at Wake Med Hospital in Raleigh, NC. She was a lifelong resident of Creswell, NC and an active member of Philippi Church of Christ where she taught teen Bible study for many years. She was tender hearted, loving, happiest when she was taking care of others and always in prayer. She was a gracious host to the many visitors her husband would unexpectedly bring home for dinner. Her grandchildren fondly remember her chocolate biscuits she would serve them for breakfast.
She was preceded in death by her husband of more than fifty years, William M. (Bill) Spruill; her parents, Charlie and Bertha Clifton and siblings Adell, Junior, Vance, Mildred, Velma, Adelia and Violet.
She is survived by her children Linda (Gerald) Woodley of Creswell, Murray (Jane) Spruill of Raleigh, Cindy (Mark) Modlin of Williamston and Kathy Spruill of Greenville; grandchildren, Tammy, Brandie, JR, Blake, Joanna, Michael, Colby and Kyle; great grandchildren, Hayden, Cierra, Teagan, Haylee Jo, Alex, Jessica, Devon, Russell, Marlee and Layla.
Funeral services will be held at 2:00 pm on Saturday, April 1, 2017, at Philippi Church of Christ, 73 Old Cherry Road, Creswell, NC with Glenn Brickhouse officiating. Burial will follow at the church cemetery. The family will geet friends in the church Fellowship Hall at 12:30 pm on Saturday until the time of the service. Memorial donations may be made in Mary's name to Philippi Church of Christ.
Arrangements are by Maitland Funeral Home, Creswell.
