Callie W. Cool|
Callie Washburn Cool, 93, widow of Bingham M. "Bing" Cool, died Saturday, November 16, after a brief illness.
Born in Starkville, MS, she was the daughter of the late Ralph Brown and Callie Arnold Washburn. She was a graduate of Louisiana State University. After moving to Clemson in 1958, she and her husband were active members of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Clemson. She taught kindergarten in the Episcopal Day School, and subsequently worked as a secretary in the Principal's Office at D.W. Daniel High.
Surviving are daughters Davy Hammatt of Clemson, Elizabeth Stuver (Thomas) of Rifle, CO, and Rachel Rowe (Chesley) of Clemson; grandchildren Heather Modzelewski (Neil), Rebecca Bradley (Bill), Cameron Moody (Greg), Mark Stuver, Callie Marsh (Abe), Taylor Rowe (Brittany); and six great-grandchildren.
The family would like to recognize
the loving assistance of our friend, Tywanda King; the compassionate and supportive care of Interim Hospice; and the friendly, caring, and competent staff of Sterling House, where Mother lived for the past five years. The care she received from all these sources eased her final days for her and for us. We are grateful beyond words.
There will be a graveside committal service Saturday, December 28, at 10:30 AM at Cemetery Hill,
followed by a memorial service at 11:00 AM at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church; the family will receive friends in the Parish Hall immediately following the service.
Memorials may be made to Holy Trinity Episcopal Church (193 Old Greenville Hwy, Clemson), to Interim Hospice (155 Deacon Tiller Ct, Greenville), or to Clemson University Foundation designated for The Bingham M. Cool Endowment (PO Box 1889, Clemson).
