Biography: On Saturday, April 3rd 2021, at NY Presbyterian Hospital in Queens, NY, the Lord welcomed home Mary Elizebeth Foggie.
The late Mary Elizebeth Foggie - affectionately known to us as “Beth” - was born April 2nd, 1952 in Pittsburgh, PA to the late Fannie Bell King and Roy Hampton King Sr. Beth was the oldest of 6 children. At a young age she relocated with her family to the Bronx, NY, where Beth attended Public School.
Beth was a loving caring sister, daughter, mother and friend. She played an important part in helping to raise her siblings while her parents were out working. There were times that Beth would refer to her siblings as her children.
Beth left home at an early age to venture out to see what life had to offer her. The one thing about Beth is that she knew that being a mother did not come with a handbook and did what she thought was best for her children. Beth worked for over 17 Years with FJC Security until her retirement from FJC in 2019 when her health started to deteriorate. In 2020 Beth’s health started to turn for the worse. During that time, she received the love, support and comfort of her children, whom she loved so dearly, and was surrounded by them in the days before her passing.
Beth is preceded in death by her parents Fannie King and Roy King, her siblings Belinda Manigault, Roy Hampton King Jr., Pamela Jones and Victoria King. She leaves to mourn one brother, Marc King of Ulster County NY; 6 children - Tabatha Foggie of Staten Island NY, Maurice Hughes of Binghamton NY, Tamika Keturah Staton of the Bronx NY, Prince Vincent Wells of the Bronx NY, James Curtis Manigault of South Carolina and Michael Earl McCloud of New Jersey; and one Daughter-in-law, Lashay Wells. She also leaves to mourn 18 grandchildren, 8 great-grandchildren and a host of nieces and nephews.
John 14:2-3: “In my Father’s house there are many mansions; if it were not so I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to myself that where I am, there you may be also.”
