Obituary

MILL SPRING – Jesse Lewis Foy, 88, of Mill Spring, passed away Friday afternoon, November 25, 2022 at Upstate Community Hospice House.

A native of Polk County, he was the son of the late John Harley Foy and Nellie Dalton Foy. Jesse proudly served in the U.S. Navy from 1952 to 1956. After his military service, he returned to Polk County and began farming, opened Foy’s Meat Processing and later Triple A Septic Tank until his retirement.

Jesse had a passion for Polk County and its citizens. He served two terms as a Polk County Commissioner. Polk County has certainly lost a servant to the people and will be greatly missed.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a son, Lewis Keith Foy; four brothers and three sisters.

Surviving is his wife of 65 years, Shirley Stott Foy; one son, Timothy Foy of Mill Spring; one daughter, Sonya Levister of Mill Spring; one brother, Fred Foy (Julie) of Mill Spring; seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

The family will receive friends Tuesday, November 29, 2022 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. in the McFarland Funeral Chapel.

A celebration of Jesse’s life will follow at 3:00 p.m. in the McFarland Funeral Chapel with Reverend John Edwards officiating.

Military honors will be conducted by the Polk County Veterans Memorial Honor Guard.

In lieu of flowers, the family request memorials be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, Tennessee 38105.
