Nicholas "Nick" Jasper Booth

October 8, 1942 — June 22, 2020

Nicholas J. "Nick" Booth, 77, died June 22, 2020 at South Georgia Medical Center, after battling valiantly against Covid 19 for 12 days. Nick was a husband, father, grandfather, farmer, businessman, and a friend to everyone he met. He was born Oct. 8, 1942, to Benjamin Franklin Booth and Irma Griffin Booth. He grew up on a farm and despite moving to Atlanta, selling magazines all over the eastern seaboard, being drafted into the Army and working construction in Key West, Fla., he returned to his roots. He married his wife of nearly 56 years, Mary Jo Stalvey Booth, and together they made a life of loving commitment and support of each other. He would always pick flowers for Mary Jo from the yard, roadside ditches and the woods. Together they overcame the heartbreaking loss of their son 17-year-old son Nicholas J Booth, Jr., called Nicky in 1990. Their daughter Tanya Booth O’Berry and granddaughter Ansley O’Berry Bennett have been the joy of Nick’s life. He always provided not only what they needed, but also taught them to live authentic, sincere lives filled with love and the desire to serve others. He also taught them to value work along with countless other young people who worked with him in tobacco and blueberries. His legacy will be his generosity of spirit, hugs and firm handshakes and the arrival of his great-grandson Levi Joshua Bennett. He devoted nearly 30 years of his life to the children and educators of Clinch County where he served on the board of education. He also served on the Clinch County Farm Bureau Board, the Huxford Spear Genealogical Board, the Alapaha Soil and Water Conservation Board, and was a member of Michigan Blueberries Grower Association since 1983. He also attended Homerville United Methodist Church, where he and Mary Jo renovated the old Standard Oil building for the youth in memory of Nicky. He was also the owner of Homerville Feed and Seed, Booth Berry Farm and packing shed, and a herd of cows that he began a with a wild orphaned calf caught with help of his cousins Earl Rogers and Leon Morris in the Okefenokee Swamp. In addition to Mary Jo, Tanya, Ansley and husband Josh Bennett and Levi, Nick is survived by his sister Elva Dickerson, sister Laura Landrum Keenan and husband John, all of Homerville. He leaves several other relatives who were dearly cherished by him. Visitation will be 6-7 p.m., Wed., at Roundtree Funeral Home and a graveside service 11 a.m., Thursday at Shiloh Church cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Homerville United Methodist Church Building Fund or Huxford Spearman Genealogical Society.
