- About Us
Lou Ann McFadden, 83, of Lexington, SC, passed away in the early morning hours of Wednesday, April 3, 2019. She was born in Anderson County on January 19, 1936 to the late Lois and Samuel Stalnaker and was the youngest of five children. She spent her youngest years on a farm in Elberton, Georgia before the family moved to Columbia, SC. She attended Brooklyn-Cayce High School. For most of her adult life, Lou Ann worked for the United States Postal Service as a rural mail carrier. Lou Ann was a lifelong learner with a great interest in history and the world around her. She was never without a book in progress and made great use of her local library. She also enjoyed weekly card games with her family and friends. And, she especially loved spending time with her beloved cat, Miss Kitty. Lou Ann had a kind heart and gentle spirit, but will probably best be remembered for her wry sense of humor.
Lou Ann was predeceased by her siblings (Henry, Alvin, Tommy, and Martha), husband Bill McFadden, and her nephews John “Benji” Broom and William Broom. Surviving are her nieces and nephews (Sheryl Ballard, Debra Corder, Donna Hall, Pamela Kuochiang, Carolyn Monts, David Stalnaker, Samuel Stalnaker and Tommy Dean Stalnaker), as well as numerous cousins, great-nieces and great-nephews. She will be terribly missed.
A memorial service will be held at the chapel of Celestial Memorial Gardens, 3111 Delree Street, West Columbia, SC 29170 on Monday, April 8, 2019 at 11:00am. Friends and family will gather for a visitation after the service. Viewing is open through Sunday at Barr-Price Funeral Home and Crematorium, Lexington Chapel.
