Obituary "For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing." II Timothy 4:6-8 Robbie Lee Fountain was born July 13, 1935 in Darlington County, South Carolina a daughter of the late Leroy and Catherine Smith Fountain. She grew up in the home of her grandparents, Streater and Maybelle Mumford Smith. She received her early education in the public schools of Darlington County, South Carolina. She graduated with the Butler High School Class of 1954. "Lela," the name she was affectionately known to many as, was a hard-working and dedicated individual. She was employed with Hartsville Manufacturing as a Seamstress for many years. Later, she became one of a few African American Cosmetologists in the area. She loved spending time with her family, especially her son because he gave her great joy. Robbie was taught about Jesus at an early age. It was this loved that led her to join the Sixth Street Church of God, in the early 1970's. She grew and worked faithfully under Reverend Alford. It was not until the late 1980's, that she joined Jerusalem Baptist Church. It was here where she continued to serve her Savior until she became ill. She was a great servant of God who will be greatly missed by her family and friends. Those who know the Word of God know that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Surviving to cherish the memory and maintain the legacy of Robbie Lee Fountain is her loving son, Roderick (Linda) Fountain of Hartsville, SC; her three grandchildren, Jessica Fountain of Dallas, TX, Ronda (Tommy) Covington and Traci Fountain both of Hartsville, SC; five great grandchildren, Idaejah Covington, Jy Covington, Samiya Covington, SaaiAmonty Covington-Smith all of Hartsville, SC, and Karoid Anderson of Camden, SC, many other close cousins, nieces, nephews, and other dear friends.
