Barbara Wilson Obituary

Ms. Barbara Ann McFadden Wilson, daughter of the late Samuel McFadden and Anna Louise Anderson McFadden, quietly and peacefully slipped into a beautiful eternal rest on Tuesday, October 31, 2023. She was born in Florence County on April 7, 1957.

Barbara accepted Christ at an early age. She was a faithful and devoted member of St. Mark Believer’s Holiness Church under the watchful eye of Presiding Bishop Dr. Linwood Cooper. She served on several committees including The Missionary Department, The Pastor’s Aide Committee, The Widows and Others Ministry and The Homecoming Committee. She was also a dedicated member of the Sunday School Department where she served as the assistant secretary. 

Barbara attended the public school system in Florence County. She graduated from South Carolina State University in 1979 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and History. Later in life she continued her education and received her Master’s Degree in Education from Grand Canyon University in 2009.

Barbara loved to read, teach, and learn new things. After graduating college, she began to teach. She taught in various school districts, but the bulk of teaching career was spent at Kingstree Sr. High School in Kingstee, SC. She later retired from Lee County School district in June of 2010. Throughout her career, Barbara spent many years volunteering for the Lake City Recreation and Tourism Department wherever she was needed. She also taught English at The Believer’s Holiness Conference Bible Institute.

Although Barbara was now retired, her quest for knowledge, teaching and volunteering did not stop there. She continued to read and educate herself. Barbara always carried around two or three books wherever she went. She continued to volunteer with The Lake City Senior Center where she gave numerous speeches educating those around her about Black History. She was also the chairperson of Olanta Schools Alumni Association Scholarship Committee. Barbara dedicated her heart and soul to making sure the children had a jumpstart to their future.

Barbara was a soldier of God and she ran a good race and fought a good fight until the time of her passing.

She leaves to cherish her memories: a loving and devout daughter, Shanna C. Wilson of the home; one brother, Andrew (Linda) McFadden of Lake City, SC; four uncles, Thomas (Ernestine) McFadden of Pittsburgh, PA, Frank David (Gloria) McFadden of Florence, SC, Albert (Barbara) Anderson of Lake City, SC and Frank (Billy Ann) Anderson of Kentucky; seven aunts, Lucille Butler of Newark, NJ, Cynthia (Wilbert) Mallette of Lake City, SC, Lorene (Adam) Bostick of Baltimore, MD, Patricia Cooper of Florence, SC, Doris Anderson of Lake City, SC, Covetta Anderson of Lake City, SC and Wilhelmenia McFadden Bradley of Scranton, SC; two god daughters, Crystal Tolliver of Chesapeake, VA and Imani Brown of Lake City, SC and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends..
