Mary Ellen Lofton

February 26, 1946 ~ June 30, 2018 (age 72)

Mary Ellen Lofton

Mary would like to let you know that her work here is done. She arrived at the Good Place on June 30th, 2018.

We imagine she pulled up to the pearly gates in her ’65 baby blue Mustang with M&M’s on the dash, a box of Russell Stover’s on the passenger seat, and an endless supply of Cadbury Crème eggs in the glove box (in case of emergency). The radio is tuned to Clark Howard and her bag is full of Sweet N’ Low packets she managed to “collect” along the way.

As we wave good-bye, we can see there is a bumper sticker curiously declaring, “What happens at Grandma’s, stays at Grandma’s!” and we can hear the echo of her voice proclaiming, “I love you to infinity and beyond!”

Mary Ellen Lofton, 72, was born in Brooklyn, NY on February 26, 1946. She graduated from Baldwin High School in Baldwin, NY and continued on to receive a degree in Nursing from Texas Women’s University. She later worked as an intensive care nurse for DeKalb Medical Center for 30+ years.

Mary was married to H. Michael Lofton on November 1, 1969; they were married for 48 years.

Mary is survived by her husband, H. Michael Lofton; son, Michael Lofton; daughter Christine Lofton; and sister, Margaret Scheil.

The visitation will be held on Friday, July 6, 2018 at Barr-Price Funeral Home at 3 p.m., followed by a funeral service at 3:30. The family will greet friends following the funeral service. Graveside service and burial will be at Old McClellanville Cemetery in McClellanville, SC on Saturday, July 7, 2018 at 3 pm. Funeral arrangements are being handled by Barr-Price Funeral Home and Crematorium, Lexington Chapel.

The family wishes to thank all of our friends and family for the tremendous outpour of support and sympathy.
