Mrs. Virginia Shivar Truesdale, 93, married to the late Lawton M. Truesdale for 68 years, died on Wednesday, September 8, 2021. Born December 5, 1927, in Camden, S.C., she was the daughter of the late Lester and Bezelia Shivar. Mrs. Truesdale retired from Day ‘N’ Night Laundromat of Camden, S.C. She enjoyed cooking, gardening, and serving her family with delicious food.
As a very loving person, her favorite times were spent in the home with her family in Antioch. With true southern hospitality, her legacy will continue with her family and friends. Grace and strength were an example of a Christian lady who loved her family with patience and much laughter.
