Obituary of Mary Ellen Womack

Mary Ellen (Pope) Womack, born on November 1, 1921 in Cleveland, Tennessee, to the late Roxie Grooms Pope and the late Manual Pope, entered into her life after with Jesus at age 97 on May 13, 2019 in Ridgeway, South Carolina.

Mary grew up during the great depression, when education was thought to be unimportant, especially for girls. Mary took turns with her siblings attending elementary school in Cleveland Tennessee while the others stayed home to work in the fields, and as a result she obtained a third grade education. She lived a very long and fruitful life. She loved her children and was able to teach them lessons in life they would have never learned any other way. She eventually became a Cosmetologist and later a Seamstress. Mary was the former wife of the late R H Womack.

She was preceded in death by her son, Ronald Womack; brothers, Phillip, Cecil, and Andrew; and sisters, Alice, Ruby, Vertie Mae, Jewel, and Mealor. Mary is survived by her son, Larry Womack; daughter, Ginger Womack Jackson; grandchildren, Gregory Womack, Steve Womack, Christy Porter, Randy Womack, Brian Jeffcoat, and Christopher Jeffcoat; and several great grandchildren, and many wonderful nieces and nephews.

She loved sewing, quilting, and house plants. Her quilts were made with perfection and she made sure each of her children received a labor intensive, hand stitched quilt made with love.

The family invites donations in Mary's name to Ridgeway Manor Nursing Home. A celebration of life will be private. The funeral home will be South Carolina Cremation Society, 210 State Street, West Columbia, 800-758-9115.
