Biography of Conway Russell Bloxton and Leland Butler Bloxton's oldest daughter:

Mary Virginia Bloxton (Mrs. Carl Deane English) (1923-2004)

Mrs. Mary Virginia Bloxton English died December 9, 2004 in Anderson, SC. She was born in Frankfort, KY in 1923. Her mother was Leland Butler Bloxton, and her father was Conway Russell Bloxton, oldest son of Conway Peyton Bloxton and Georgia Belle Stanford Bloxton.

Mary was a graduate of North Fulton High School and Agnes Scott College and earned her Master's in Religious Education at Louisville, KY. She married Dr. Carl Deane English, retired at her passing from Anderson Baptist College. Their daughter, Carla, predeceased her mother. Mary taught Sunday School at Boulevard Baptist Church and served as devotion chairman for Mimosa Garden Club for 20 years. She was truly a renaissance woman--teaching piano, studying painting, ceramics and tailoring her clothes. She was an excellent cook. Her sister, June Louise Bloxton Terrell Dever of Atlanta, GA (well-known portrait painter of over 6,000 portraits), published the devotionals in a book. Mary and June traveled extensively in Europe with the help of a wheel chair. Mary toured Eastern Europe while it was still under communist domination. She was a beautifull, spiritual woman who loved the Lord. The McDougald Funeral Home, Anderson, SC was in charge of arrangements.
