Barbara (Wiseman) Fox

March 25, 1930 — March 21, 2023

Barbara Wiseman Fox, age 92, passed away on March 21, 2023, at the Ogeechee Area

Hospice Inpatient Residential Facility. She was predeceased by her beloved husband of 37

years, Robert A. Fox.

She worked for many years as a homemaker providing loving care for her family until she

started her 21-year career at the University of South Alabama in Mobile, Alabama. She was

also very actively involved in both the men’s and women’s basketball program. Barbara was

their biggest and most loyal supporter. She retired in 1995 as the Records Supervisor for the

Registrar’s office. She was very successful in both careers, but especially in the role of wife,

mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was deeply loved and will be greatly

missed.

Barbara moved to Statesboro in 2005 to be closer to her family. She loved her time in

Statesboro and was very involved in the community. She was a very active member of

Statesboro First United Methodist Church and enjoyed membership in the United Methodist

Women, Dreta Sharpe Circle as well as the Spade and Trowel Garden Club. She also served

on the board of the preschool at First Methodist and enjoyed fellowship as a member of several

lunch clubs.

She was awarded the Deen Day Smith Award for her work in the community. She chaired the

fund-raising effort for First Methodist’s team for the American Diabetes Association and was

active in the annual walk for the American Cancer Society. Her most cherished honor, however,

was one awarded by her fellow UMW members. They selected her for the Quiet Disciple award

for her kindness and generosity in her volunteer work for the United Methodist church.

She is survived by a daughter Judi Robbins and her husband Barry, a grandson Brian Kent and

his wife Candace, a step grandson Jordan Robbins, a great-grandson Hudson Kent and very

special, loving and devoted friend, Angus James “Jim” McCranie, Jr. Barbara is also survived

by many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Visitation will be held at Statesboro First United Methodist Church in the Fellowship Hall at

1:00pm Monday, April 3, 2023 with a memorial service following at 2:00pm officiated by Jimmy Cason.

Honorary pallbearers will be members of the Dan Williams Sunday School Class, United

Methodist Women and Dreta Sharpe Circle.
