Foye A. Waldrip


Foye Ann Waldrip (née Halstead), cherished wife, mother, grandmother and friend, passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones and friends on Friday, March 29, 2024. Foye’s vibrant spirit and strong will were evident in everything she pursued, leaving a legacy of love and determination.

Born in Troy, AL, to the late Cecil Foy and Juanita Halstead, Foye’s journey was one of passion, dedication and joy. She was a proud alumnus of Sidney Lanier High School in Montgomery, AL, followed by a BA degree from API/ Auburn University, a foundational experience that shaped much of her life’s joys and commitments. It was here that she and her beloved husband, Thomas (Tommy) C. Waldrip, cultivated a life filled with love, learning and an unwavering support for their alma mater.

Foye’s love for sports was unparalleled, with a particular fervor for Auburn football. Weekends would find her either on the golf course, tennis courts or eagerly cheering for her beloved Tigers,

In the words of Foye…

“Go Auburn!!! War Damn Eagle!!!!”

Or, depending on the play…

“Damn-it Auburn!!!!”

After Tommy’s retirement from CF Halstead Contracting, Foye & Tommy moved to Auburn, AL to be close to family. Later in life, Foye & Tommy moved to Central Florida until Tommy was called home. It was then that Foye moved to Amelia Island for the reminder of her years.

Foye’s legacy is carried on by her loving family: her son Keith Waldrip and his partner Mark Ross; her daughter Patti and James Sprayberry; her grandchildren, Benton and Jeb Sprayberry; and her two sisters, Lynda and Ronnie Crocker, and Jackie Compton. Each reflects a piece of Foye’s strength, compassion and zest for life.

In remembrance of Foye, the family requests that any donations be made in her honor to Auburn University, the Alzheimer’s Association or Community Hospice. These causes held a special place in Foye’s heart, reflecting her commitment to education, health and community care.

As we bid farewell to Foye Ann Waldrip, we celebrate her remarkable life, her enduring love and the countless memories she has gifted us. Her legacy of strength, kindness and unwavering support will forever be cherished and remembered.
