Amelia Arthur McFaddin, 99, of Charleston, South Carolina, formerly of Manning and Pawleys Island, SC, widow of James Hugh McFaddin, died on Wednesday, December 21, 2016. Her Funeral Eucharist will be held Saturday, January 7, 2017 in Grace Church Cathedral, 98 Wentworth Street at 2:00 p.m. Committal will be at Church of the Holy Cross Churchyard, Stateburg, SC on Sunday, January 8, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. Arrangements by J. Henry Stuhr, Inc., Downtown Chapel.

Amelia was born December 17, 1917 in Richland County, South Carolina, daughter of the late William Weston Arthur and the late Anne Peyre Moore Arthur.

She is survived by three daughters: Anne M. Sauls (Morgan) of Manning, SC, Jane A. McFaddin (Charles Bryan, Jr.) of Charleston, SC, and Margaret S. McFaddin of Columbia, SC; son, James Hugh McFaddin, Jr. (Jill) of Manning, SC; nine grandchildren and fourteen great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her daughter, Amelia McFaddin Barringer.

She graduated from the University of South Carolina in 1940 where she was a cheerleader and member of the May Court. Amelia was a retired school teacher and had a lifelong interest in, and commitment to, service and community organizations on both local and statewide levels.

She was an active parishioner in her church throughout her life, whether in Stateburg, Manning, Summerton or Pawleys Island. At her death, she was a member of Grace Church Cathedral. Her love for gardening and beautification led her to be a charter member of the Azalea Garden Club (Manning, SC) and The Herb Society (Pawleys Island), as well as a docent at Brookgreen Gardens and member of Pawleys Island Beautification Committee.

Amelia's sense of civic responsibility and concern for children and families led to her service as Board member of York Place Episcopal Home for Children, Clarendon County Library and Lowcountry Girl Scouts, volunteer at Smith Medical Clinic, member of Georgetown County (SC) Election Commission and poll watcher, and charter member of the Pee Dee Committee of the National Society of Colonial Dames of America in the State of South Carolina. One of her greatest honors was her service as Grand Marshall of the Pawleys Island 4th of July Parade.
