1925 – 2015
Miss Andrew Jacquelyn Mishoe of Loris passed away Wednesday, Dec. 2 at McLeod Loris hospital after an extended illness. She was 90.
She was born Jan. 13, 1925 in McLeod Florence Hospital, a daughter of the late Andrew Jackson and Bess Worley Mishoe.
She was a graduate of Loris High School, Coker College where she earned her Bachelor of Arts degree and the University of North Carolina, where she earned her Master of Education Degree.
After graduation she taught first grade in Horry County. She then began teaching first grade for Columbus County at Tabor City Elementary. She helped to pioneer the implementation of the public school kindergarten program for Columbus County. Upon receiving her supervision certification degree, she was promoted to the Columbus County Central Office to direct the kindergarten through eighth grade program. She retired in the 1980’s in order to care for her mother during her declining health.
Miss Mishoe was active in her community, church and in many professional organizations. She was a life long member of Loris First Presbyterian Church. For over fifty years she was an active member of the Loris Garden Club, Loris Music and Literary Club, and the Omega Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma. She served on many municipal boards in the town she loved and was so proud of, Loris. She was honered by the Loris Chamber of Commerce as Loris’ “Citizen of the Year” in 2006. Miss Mishoe loved her flowers and sharing them with various churches and countless friends. She enjoyed directing weddings over the years in both Carolinas.
A passion of Miss Mishoe was the restoration of antiques and her father’s home at Lewisville in the Bayboro community and the famous Horry County landmark home, the Allsbrook-Rankin-Mishoe. Both homes sadley, were lost to fires. Always the epitomy of southern charm and grace, Miss Mishoe loved to share her homes with the public for Chamber of Commerce functions, black tie affairs, birthdays and weddings.
She was predeceased by her parents and two sisters, Fannie Mishoe Hall and Bess Worley Mishoe. Left to cherish her memories are a host of cousins and friends. She was especially grateful for the help of her cousins and caregivers over the years, Celsa Worley and Maria Worley. Her wish was to always be able to live her life out in her Main Street residence, and these individuals insured the wish was granted.
