On June 6, 1946, a beautiful baby girl was born to Willie Sr. and Eola Graham Scott in Hartsville, South Carolina. They called her “Mae Ola”. As a child, Mae Ola’s desire to help others was already established; Mae Ola spent much of her youth sitting at the feet of her elders, learning how to care for others while simultaneously caring for her younger siblings.
Mae Ola was educated in the Chesterfield County School System and graduated from Pine Forest High School. She served in a domestic capacity for many homes and families in the McBee community.
She leaves behind to mourn: a daughter, Dr. Athena M. King; a son, Vashon L. (Natasha Jackson) King; a granddaughter, Jasmine King; three grandsons, Jonathan Hough, Jaylen King, and Jayce King; a great-granddaughter, Kingsley Hough; a sister, Lois (Willie) Evans, Jr.; six brothers, Billy (Marlene) Scott, Arthur (Lillian) Scott, Ronald (Debra) Hawkins, Lindell Scott, Steve Scott, and Willie (Sabrina) Scott; and a host of in-laws, nieces, nephews, other close relatives, friends, and extended church families.
Please keep the family of Mrs. Mae Ola King in your thoughts and prayers.
The Governor of South Carolina advises to limit public gatherings to 50 guests or less to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Smith Funeral Home of Florence, LLC carefully considered this recommendation and ask that additional guest please participate via live-streaming if it is authorized by the family.
