    • Augusta Slappey Carruth July 17, 1921 - April 29, 2014
      Mrs. Augusta Slappey Carruth
      Augusta Slappey Carruth, age 92, died Tuesday morning, April 29th, at Southeast Regional Hospital. She was born in Macon, Georgia and grew up in Bainbridge. She attended Georgia State College for Women in Milledgeville, graduating in 1942. In 1943 she married the Rev. W. Carlton Carruth, a United Methodist Minister. They had resided in the Golden Isles since 1967, with the exception of five years spent in Douglas, Georgia.
      Mrs. Carruth's survivors include her three children: Miriam C. and Daniel Hagan of Macon; Zaidee Carruth of St. Simons Island; and Wade and Claire Carruth of St. Simons Island. The surviving grandchildren are Rev. Scott Hagan of Columbus, Rev. Kirk Hagan of Wrightsville, Ashley Trousdale of Sarajevo, Bosnia, Spencer Clark of Smyrna, Wade Carruth, III of Douglasville, and Katherine Carruth, of St. Simons Island. Mrs. Carruth is also survived by five great-grandchildren: Sam and Jack Hagan of Columbus, Tyler and Hannah Trousdale of Sarajevo, Bosnia, and Wesley Hagan of Wrightsville.
      Augusta loved her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren unconditionally and made each and every one of them feel that they were the most important person in her life. In addition to her family, Augusta's passions were the United Methodist Church, the organization of United Methodist Women, and the Missions of the church. She served all three of those on the local, district, conference, Southeastern Jurisdiction and national levels of the United Methodist Church.
      Mrs. Carruth was blessed with leadership skills. In high school she was President of the Senior Class, captain of the girls' basketball team and captain of the cheerleaders. In college she continued in this same vein as an officer for her class at GSCW, adding to that resume her service to the Methodist Youth Conference as Vice-President.
      Augusta was elected delegate to the General Conference of the United Methodist Church, seven times (held every four years) , which at that time was more than any other lay or clergy in the history of South Georgia United Methodist Conference. She also represented South Georgia Conference three times at the World Methodist Conference, held in different countries throughout the world every five years.
      She served as a Director for four years (1968-72) of the Women's Division, then as Vice President of the Women's Division of the Board of Global Ministries for four years (1972-1976). She served as the President of South Georgia United Methodist Women from 1977-1981. Augusta, along with her husband, worked tirelessly for the Vashti School for troubled children in Thomasville, Georgia for over 30 years, serving as President of the Board of Directors, among many other positions.
      At every church in which her late husband served, Augusta was the President of the United Methodist Women's organization, along with other offices. She was a very active and devoted member of First United Methodist Church in Brunswick from 1967, with the exception of the five years in Douglas, until her dementia and age began to slow her down in 2010, and served on many committees over the years, including Missions and United Methodist Women.
      Services for Mrs. Carruth will be held at First United Methodist Church on Friday, May 2nd, at 10:30 a.m. The commitment service will be held in Bainbridge, Georgia, at 5:00 p.m. also on May 2nd. Visitation will be held at Edo Miller Funeral Home from 6:00 – 8:00 on Thursday, May 1st. Because Missions was her passion, instead of flowers, the family is requesting contributions be made to the Vashti School, 1815 E. Clay Street, Thomasville, GA 31792.
      Arrangements are under the direction of Edo Miller and Sons Funeral Home,
