Kathleen MacInnes

ORANGEBURG -- Kathleen Betty MacInnes of Orangeburg, 77, passed away peacefully Sunday morning, Nov. 3, 2019, at her residence. After fighting a courageous battle with cancer, she has joined her mother and father in heaven.

Born Sept. 26, 1942, she was the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Alexander MacInnes. She graduated from Moorestown High School in New Jersey in 1960 and from Rutgers University in 1964.

Kathleen was a member of the Orangeburg Lutheran Church. Using her beautiful voice, it is here where she loved to sing in the choir. Kathleen's hobbies included gardening, sewing, creating crafts, playing games, traveling, and spending time with her grandchildren. She was also “a member” of the “Shady Ladies”, her Maple Shade friends for life and beyond. She was a volunteer for the Meals on Wheels program sponsored by Orangeburg County Council on Aging. She spoke fluent Spanish and taught ESL students at the Edisto Primary School in Cordova, South Carolina.

Miss MacInnes is survived by her sister Daisy Gauntt-Aristone (Robert); daughters Narda Fisher (Keith) and Janine Trudell (David); son Alexander White (Rachael); nieces Daisy Lynn Gauntt and Stephanie Santry (Robert); grandchildren Kristina Fisher, Kevin Fisher, and Amber White; and great niece Alyssa Walker.

It was Miss MacInnes's wish to not have a funeral service. She had her body donated to the University of South Carolina School of Medicine as part of the Polymer Preservation Program. A ceremony is planned to be held in April 2020 in her honor and her cremated remains will be interred at the School of Medicine Memorial Garden.

In lieu of flowers, Miss MacInnes wanted donations to be made to the local SPCA shelter.
