Mary Lois Satterfield
Our precious mother, Mary Lois Ross Satterfield, 88, widow of Edwin Morris Satterfield, met her Lord and Saviour on Thursday evening, January 13, 2022. Our mother is now reunited with our father and her beloved husband. Our precious memories of her will forever be embedded in our hearts until we meet in that perfect place called Heaven.
A native of Greenville County, daughter of the late Andrew Furman and Irene Simmons Ross, she loved fashion and decorating, “House of Interiors” was her business that specialized in custom made draperies. She was active in her church, Pelham First Baptist Church, where she was involved in Bible studies, served on the benevolence and decorating committees. Lois was an active participant with her dearly loved friends, in the “Merry Makers” Sunday School Class.
She was a genuine person, not only beautiful on the outside, but inside as well. She had a love of life, a smile and sparkle that would light up the room. Lois never met a stranger. She loved people and made friends wherever she went. Her compassion and kindness were evident by consistently reaching out her hands to help anyone in need.
Lois was an amazing cook. Her hospitality and kitchen were always open to friends and family where a warm, delicious meal was always served.
Surviving are two sons, Ricky Satterfield of Woodruff and Tim Satterfield of Pelzer; two daughters, Pam Gilliam of Greer and Kim Talbert (Stephen) of Greer; six grandchildren, Crystal Green, Shelly Norris, Josh Satterfield (Jeannie), Heath Satterfield (Kaylin), Evan Talbert, Michael Talbert; and six great-grandchildren, Austin Green, Justin Green, Aiden Norris, Ridge Norris, Cora Satterfield, and Wes Satterfield.
Our mother had an indescribable mother’s love for God and family, which were the “Light of her Life”.
Mrs. Satterfield was predeceased by three brothers, Wilbur Ross, Gettys Ross, Charles Ross and two sisters, Catherine Byars, and Christine Matsko.
