December 10, 1919 - January 25, 2020
Great Falls Mrs. Plumie E. Roddey, 100, died peacefully, surrounded by loved ones, on January 25, 2020, at White Oak Manor of Lancaster in South Carolina. Mrs. Roddey was born in Chester County on December 10, 1919 and was a daughter to the late Willie B. and Lula Mae Jacobs Ellison. Plumie attended school in Great Falls. At an early age, she went to work for J.P. Stevens Textile Mills, where she retired after 48 years. Plumie also took several courses in cake decorating. Plumie loved her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and she tried to live every day for the Lord. Plumie was a charter member of Trinity Baptist Church. She served in many capacities there, but her most favorite was the choir. Plumie was a member of the choir from 1962 through 2015 when her eyesight prevented her from being able to read the words but she never stopped singing praises to God. While still employed and after retirement, Plumie loved to bake. She made many beautiful cakes for special occasions such as weddings, birthdays, etc. Plumie also enjoyed making floral arrangements and worked part-time at a local florist. Family was extremely important to Plumie. She was a devoted wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend. She loved to visit folks who were no longer able to get out and take them a cake and spend some time chatting. Plumie also enjoyed traveling. Anytime there was a trip on the church bus, Plumie was packed and ready to go. Those left to cherish Plumie’s memories are her daughter, Renee McGrath (Brian) of California; nephew Fred Killian (Elisha) of Virginia; nephew Gary Ellis of Lugoff, SC; great nephews Scott Williams (Jo Ann) and Keith Williams (Darlene) of Great Falls, SC; and devoted, loving friends Barbara and Wayne Broughton of Richburg, SC, as well as many other family and friends. Mrs. Roddey was preceded in death by the love of her life and husband, John Luther Roddey. Mrs. Roddey was also preceded in death by her parents; sisters, Kathleen Rabon, Zadie Neely, Emily Rushing, Burley Roddey, Gladys Mitkus, Gertie Smith and Clennie Curtis; and brothers, Lowell Ellison, Lenzie Ellisor and Rembert Ellisor.
