Martha Marie Bost Winecoff, 90, of Davidson, passed away Monday July 13, 2020 at Tucker Hospice House. Born March 4, 1930, she was the daughter of the late Floyd and Bessie Karriker Bost.
Marie came from humble beginnings. As one of twelve children, she was born into a family of sharecroppers that traveled, farming different plots of land.
She attended Odell school and married her sweetheart, Jack Winecoff.
During her working years, Marie was employed for over 25 years at Troutman Shirt Company until it closed. She later worked for and retired from T and N Manufacturing in Davidson.
Marie took great pride in her home and caring for her family. There was always something cooking in Mamaw’s house, especially for her two beloved grandchildren and their friends.
At the age of 90, she was still driving to familiar places; to the Oak Avenue Food Lion and her hairdresser, Ann Hurd. Our family would like to express our gratitude to both for the love and compassion they always showed her.
Marie is survived by her son Rodney Winecoff and his wife Karen of Kannapolis; two grandchildren, Lindsay Medford and husband Daniel of Wilmington, NC and Jesse Winecoff and wife Lauren of Mint Hill; a sister Dolly Anderson of Sherman, TX; and a brother Perry Lee Bost and friend Evelyn Roseman of Kannapolis.
Aside from her parents, Marie was preceded in death by her beloved husband Jack on December 23, 2003; and her siblings Zelda Measimer, Raymond Bost, Ruby Bost, Homer Bost, Vera Corriher, Thedia Bost, Melvin Bost, Paul Allen Bost, and Reba Bost.
