Willie Mae Cusack

Mrs. Willie Mae Gibbs Cusack was born on October 30, 1933 to the late Alice B. Haynes and the late  John Henry (Sarah) Gibbs . On Wednesday, June 22, 2022 at Honorage Nursing Center she heard the Master’s call and entered into eternal rest. 

She attended the Public Schools of Florence County after which she dedicated her life to nurturing children plus compassionate care of the elderly. For a number of years she was a Med Technician and Certified Nursing Assistance at Commander Nursing Home. She was an emergency Foster Care Mother as well as a Foster Mother for more than 61  children. She served diligently as a 4-H Volunteer Leader and was an avid fisherman.

Mrs. Cusack joined Mount Zion Chapel Baptist Church in Pamplico, South Carolina at an early age. She served faithfully as an Usher and Missionary until her health declined. 

Willie Mae Gibbs was united in holy matrimony on April 23, 1952 to the late George Alphonso  Cusack. To this union three children were born, two daughters, Betty (Robert) Weaver and Mary Barr; and one son, the late Melvin Cusack.
