Ruth Elaine Bagwell Pridemore,

Ruth Elaine Bagwell Pridemore, was born June 22, 1937, her parents were Frank and Annie Bagwell, She was the youngest of four children. Her siblings are Buddy, Joe, and Adele. Joe passed away last year. She didn't like her first name Ruth, so she was known as Elaine. Lainie was her nickname by her husband Daniel who she married on July 17, 1955. But she was also known to Daniel as ma, wife, lover, friend, square dance partner, and mother to their children Donald and Janice. Their first child George was miscarried at 5 months. Elaine was raised in Brevard NC. Her parents owned Bagwells Groceries on their property, where she helped. But later Daniel and Elaine moved to Florida where they raised their children. Between Donald and Janice, they had 9 grandchildren, and 18 great grandchildren, including baby Daniel who went to be with the Lord shortly after he was born. Together, Daniel and Elaine helped to raise Kevin and Karl, and they remained an important part of their lives. Elaine was known as second mother to most. Kids in their neighborhood loved and admired her almost as much as her own family did. During their earlier years Daniel and Elaine enjoyed square dancing with his clogging team the Country Swingers and the famous Gene Christian band, and many of their friends. Elaine managed to squeeze in getting her nursing degree, and helped to care of many patients in private home care, and she worked in the cardiac wing in Baptist hospital. Her family belonged to the Church of God and in her early life she accepted the Lord and never forgot her faith. Elaine was quite crafty and talented, she refurbished old furniture, made candles from scratch, dabbled in playing the piano, loved to fish, loved collecting dolls, and knick knacks, loved to sit on the farmhouse porch overlooking their property and "yacking" with Hoover, and friends and family, whoever stopped by. She loved country western shows, and music, she loved reading novels, she was an animal lover, she had many cats and dogs. So many beautiful memories from her life on this earth. Elaine will be greatly missed. Rest sweetly in the arms of Jesus Ma.
A funeral service will be held 11:00 AM Wednesday, November 23rd at the Chapel In The Pines of Jackson Funeral Service with Pastor Kevin Pridemore and Pastor Ken Mason officiating.
