Juliette McConnell James, 73, the wife
of Harold H. James, Sr., finished her courageous battle with cancer and
went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, January 15, 2014, at MUSC.
Mrs. James was born the daughter of
Harvey Harrison “Harry” McConnell and Myrtle J. Alford McConnell
on June 12, 1940 in Georgetown. She was a 1958 graduate of Winyah
Hill School and was a retired Rural Letter Carrier with the US Postal Service.
She was a faithful member of the Herbert Memorial United Methodist Church
where she served in the United Methodist Women, the Church Altar Guild,
Sunday School Superintendent, and the L&M Bunn Sunday School Class.
She was a charter member of the Ocean Waves Square Dance Club; an avid
supporter, volunteer, and participant of the American Cancer Society; and
a loyal fan of the Atlanta Braves and Georgetown High School sports teams.
She was the epitome of a Southern Lady in the home and in the community.
She enjoyed sewing, knitting, and crocheting. Though words could never
fully describe her joyous and contagious smiles or the limitless hugs to
family and friends, her acts of selfless giving, fervent prayer, and an
unconditional love leaves a legacy of a Beloved Mother and Christian Woman.
