Tribute & Message From The Family


Jean Fraser Boggs, 104, widow of William Lewis Boggs, Ret Col US Army, passed away July 10, 2021.

Born in Florence, SC. She was the daughter of Catherine Jervey Fraser and Clarence Anderson Fraser. Her first husband, Alfred J. Folger, survived the Invasion of Normandy, and was lost in action on D-Day plus three.

Jean attended Furman University in Greenville. While raising six children she was also involved in Garden and Bridge Clubs. She was an energetic volunteer at the polls during elections and in local hospitals.

From learning guitar in her 80's to line dancing to swimming, she embraced life and had many varied interests. Her sense of humor was often displayed by wearing outrageous costume jewelry. She had a happy, positive personality that brightened many lives.

A longtime active member of St. Mary's Catholic Church in Greenville, and later St. Anthony's Parish, she became a member at Christ Our King upon moving to Mt. Pleasant.

Jean is survived by her children, Taylor Folger Smith of Mt. Pleasant, SC, Alfred Folger (Mary), of Columbia, SC, Ellen Boggs McClure (Keith), of Alexandria, VA, Bruce Boggs (June), of Mt.

Dora, FL, and Jeanne Coleman of Naples, FL.
