Mrs. Bradley, wife of Jack J. Bradley, died Thursday, February 02, 2012. Born in Camden, SC, she was the daughter of the late Ernest Christmas of Hartsville and Margaret Arrants Christmas McGee. She was a Camden High School graduate. Mrs. Bradley served as one of the only female pack leaders for Troop 303 in SC at that time. She gave countless hours to the Boy Scouts of America. She was a devoted mother and wife of over 49 years, always selfless and gave everything to her family and children. She never missed one of her son’s sporting events and treated their friends like one of her own. Our mother loved the Lord and taught her children the same.
She loved being a grandmother, talking and laughing for hours with her children and grandchildren was her favorite duty, we will never forget our mother and will all do our best to become the parent that she always was. There was never a time in our lives that we did not feel unconditionally loved by this wonderful woman. She would have taken in every animal she came across if she could and loved her dogs like no other. Mrs. Bradley was a member of Springvale Baptist Church.
Surviving in addition to her husband are her sons, Joseph Timothy "Tim" Bradley and his wife Tamara of Lugoff and Jack Todd Bradley and his wife Jennifer of Lexington; grandmother to Dustin Timothy Bradley, Madisson Marie Mennix, Hannah-Caroline Bradley and Ethan Jackson Bradley, 4 brothers, Tony "Burt" McGee of NC, Danny McGee of GA., Jackie McGee of Lugoff, and Woody McGee of TN.
Rest now Momma for your work is now complete and your hands will always be felt on our hearts and lives.
