Just learned of Roena passing. Having known her since the early 60s, she was always kind and had a stellar testimony for our LORD. Charles, please know that my dad, Becky and I are praying for you during this time of loss. May our Lord Jesus Christ give you peace.

Dear Pastor,
We didn’t hear of your loss until today (Monday). Roena was a wonderful lady who loved God and you with all her heart and you have been a great example of a loving and devoted husband - what a great testimony to so many!
May God comfort you and bring to mind the blessed times you two shared.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Mrs. Foushee. I enjoyed working closely with her at NCNB/NationsBank/Bank of America for many years. She was the epitome of a true lady, while still being a very efficient and effective associate. I am glad she and her family enjoyed time together after her retirement. May your sweet memories comfort you in the days and years ahead.

Pastor Foushee, So sorry to hear about your wife. I enjoyed seeing the two of you when you visited Hardee's at Little Rock Road (1980-83). I appreciate the friendship I had with you through my work at WHVN and WCGC. May God bring you comfort in your time of sorrow.

I came to Charlotte in the early 60's.....went to work at NCNB......met Roena and liked her immediately. I used to always shock her with my "Yankee" ways She would laugh and tell me that eventually I would learn the Southern way! Roena was a lovely lady and won me over with her Southern "genteel" manner. Rest in peace sweet lady.

I grew up at Ridgeview Baptist Church. D. Breeden was our SS teacher. I can still see the faces of so many friends and family. Went to Temple with E Tyler. Ronnie, Sharon, Beth, Linda, Sally, Mark and others we owe a debt of gratitude to Pastor and Mrs. Foushee. I live a ways away but I will never forget Mrs. Foushee. Always soft spoken, a kind word and she loved the Bible. Mrs. Foushee say hi to Mom and Dad for me. TY for investing your time, your life for others.
