Maxey Camille Avant Scaffe, 80, entered into eternal rest the morning of Thursday. Camille was fortunate enough to pass peacefully in her favorite
chair and with her loyal dog, Wolfe, by her side. Camille Scaffe was born to proud parents Maggie and Monk Avant of Walterboro, South Carolina. Due
to the current COVID-19 outbreak, a celebration of life will be planned for a future date once safer conditions exist for travel and group gatherings.

She graduated from Furman University and enjoyed a long career as a Paralegal for a Charleston law firm. She enjoyed water skiing, attending Nascar races,
going to the beach with family, reading, and had an amazing love of animals (including a pet raccoon). She also enjoyed painting and gardening
throughout her life. Lastly, we must mention that she was a lifelong Clemson fan. We will sorely miss this 'character.'

She is survived by her stepson, David Scaffe; one sister, Marcia Wilson Reitzer; nieces Joni Wilson Massey and Becky Wilson Farrar; one nephew, John P. Wilson; her beloved dog, Wolfe along with three rescue cats; numerous great nieces/nephews and great great nieces/nephews and dear friends. She was predeceased by her son, L. Eric Smith, both parents, and her husband, Irving Eugene Scaffe.
