Mrs. Mary Alice was agraduate of Columbia College.  She taught for 38 years in the Sumter County, Clarendon County and Florence County School Systems.  She was a member of Nazareth United Methodist Church where she taught Sunday School and was a leader of the Women's Missionary Society and a Circle leader.  She was a member and past president of the Olanta Garden Club.

She was a wonderful teacher and a dear, sweet lady.  I'll have to admit trying to teach a bunch of country children how to speak French was certainly a chore.  I reckon she pulled it off.  Wee.
