Emma K. DuBose, 89, wife of the late V. Fred DuBose died on May 29, 2020. Born in Lee County, SC, she was the daughter of Marie Kinlaw Logan.

She is predeceased by a son, David DuBose, a sister, Elizabeth Walters, and a niece Pam Hayes. Mrs. DuBose graduated from Tuomey Hospital Nursing School as a registered nurse. She worked at Lee County Memorial Hospital for approximately 50 years serving part of that as Director of Nursing She also worked for the Lee County Health Department, as well as in the medical practices of Dr. Herman Denny, Dr. Leroy Dennis, Dr. John Pate, and Dr. Edgar Deschamps, III. She embraced nursing with dedication and compassion that will long be remembered by many of those she worked to heal. She balanced her nursing career as a perfect wife, mother and a very important part of The DuBose Family Farm. In addition to her legendary fruitcakes, pecan pies, pound, caramel, pineapple and coconut cakes she loved to share, we believed it was her wish to be remembered for her love of the entire DuBose family, her exceptional nursing skill, and her dedication as a mother, wife, grandmother, and sister. We believe she achieved this legacy through the love she had for her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and her wisdom and service to Him. We are forever changed for having had her in our lives on this earth.
