For 30 years James and Mary Fannie Woodruff operated a country store in Amherst County. Downstairs served as a community gathering place with a wood stove, chairs and benches. Upstairs was the Woodruff home. Out front were fuel pumps where Mary Fannie dispensed gas, in between taking care of store sales and raising her five biological children as well as several foster children. The Woodruffs closed the store in 1983. They were married for 63 years until James’ death in 1998.
