Mary Ruth Oxendine

October 25, 1949 - February 6, 2019

Mary Ruth Oxendine, age 69, of Wilmington, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, February 6, 2019, surrounded by her loving family at the Lower Cape Fear Hospice and LifeCareCenter after a courageous battle with cancer.

She was born October 25, 1949 in Buffalo, NY to Guy R. Otis and Mary M. Otis.

Mary is survived by her husband of 52 years, Willie E. Oxendine; two sons, Wille E. Oxendine, Jr. and Scott Allen Oxendine; one daughter, Kathryn Lynn Oxendine (Tim Michael); four grandchildren, Sean and Corey Royal and Scott, Jr. and Summer Oxendine; three great grandchildren, Benjamin, William and Christian Sholar. Three sisters, Diane Hauser, Cheryl Walters (Jim), and Sue Nappa (Ray) and sister in law Bea Padula; numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, and many dear friends.

Mary spent the past 30 years serving as Secretary-Treasurer of the family business SENC Steel Detailing, Inc. of Wilmington. All of her free time beyond work was devoted to being the best wife, mother, granny, sister, aunt and friend anyone could ever ask for. The same as her mother before her. She enjoyed most of all having as much family as possible present for special holiday gatherings and visits.

The family wishes to give special thanks to all Doctors and caregivers who treated Mary throughout her battle with cancer and a very special thanks to all the staff at the Lower Cape Fear Hospice for the efforts made in keeping Mary as comfortable as possible during some very difficult times.

The family will receive friends Friday, February 8, 2019, at the Wilmington Funeral Chapel from 10:30 AM till 11:30 AM followed by a brief Memorial Service.
