BEECH ISLAND, S.C. - Mary McLaurin Greene Nicolaides, 74, of Beech Island, SC, left this life peacefully at her home surrounded by friends and family. She is survived by her son, Shaun Alexis Nicolaides, and countless friends who were drawn to her loving nature and her devotion to helping others. She will be remembered by her devotees as one who was a passionate disciple of art and music, a lover of words, a champion of those without a voice, a student of nature. She believed that truth and beauty can be found in all things. As she begins this new journey, her legacy will be remembered and shared by all who know her beautiful soul, as it lives on in all she touched. A service of celebration will be held Wednesday, May 26th at 3:00 at Cataloochee State Park, outside of Asheville, NC. The family asks that all come wearing the bright, beautiful colors that Mary loved so much. A reception will follow at The Village Wayside Grille in Biltmore Village at 6:00. Her ashes will be scattered at the burial place of her ancestors on Edisto Island, SC. Groce Funeral Home on Patton Ave. is assisting her family. The on-line register is available at .
