Published: 11/29/2012

Robbie Wilds Bedenbaugh, 88, of Lexington, South Carolina, born in the Houston Valley area of Tennessee on February 9, 1924, passed away Wednesday, November 21, 2012.

She was a daughter of the late Jacob Leroy Wilds and Winnie Ray Wilds and widow of the late Jacob C. 'Bill' Bedenbaugh.

Robbie was a member of Red Bank Baptist Church, where she founded, faithfully served, and was later named librarian emeritus of the church library.

She was a liaison volunteer at Lexington Medical Center and also volunteered at Lexington Extended Care.

Robbie spent a lot of her time volunteering, helping others and loved bird watching and taking care of her flowers.

She retired from the University of South Carolina.

Known as 'Gammy' by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, each of them had a 'special place in her heart.'

Survivors include her two daughters Karen B. Parrish (John Wayne) and Susan B. Powell (Butch), all of Lexington; five grandchildren Robert A. Powell, Jr. (Jamie), Robyne M. Parrish, Joshua Wilds Powell (Allison), Allison Lee Hill (Roger), and Lindsay Dixon Bost (Derrick); nine great-grandchildren; and two sisters Nuffie Arrington and Phyllis Wilds.

The family extends a special "Thank you" to staff of Crews Point at Lexington Medical Center Extended Care for their loving care.

A graveside service was held at 10:00 a.m. Saturday in Red Bank Baptist Church Cemetery.

A celebration of life and fellowship followed in the church sanctuary.

Pallbearers were Rob Powell, Josh Powell, Roger Hill, Derrick Bost, Anthony Arrington, and Jimmy Wilds.

Memorials may be made to Red Bank Baptist Church, 120 Community Drive, Lexington, SC 29073.

Caughman-Harman Funeral Home, Lexington, is assisting the family with arrangements.
