Baugh, former president of the Eula Mae and John Baugh Foundation and a benefactor of progressive Baptist ministries and movements around the world, died June 14 in San Antonio after battling Parkinson’s disease. She was 78.
Like her parents, Baugh’s generosity emanated from her Christian faith and deep convictions about historic Baptist values. Her heritage of family and faith also inspired prolific service to a wide range of faith-based institutions. She served on the boards of Mercer University, B.H. Carroll Theological Seminary, Baptist Joint Committee and Baptist Center for Ethics, among others.
