On October 11, 2023, at 78 years old, Elvera McCue bid her earthly family good-bye and was welcomed in Heaven with the words “Well done my good and faithful servant.” While her family misses her dearly, we all wholeheartedly share the sentiment of the great hymn-writer Horatio Spafford that “It is well with [our] soul” because, for El, death lost its sting, and the grave has no victory thanks to her unwavering faith in Jesus Christ.  She is now with our Savior and will enjoy the sweet company of our God forever.

Born in Turbeville, South Carolina, Elvera was the second youngest of six children. She told stories of growing up picking cotton and having little but sharing freely. She went on to become a registered nurse and was proud of the 58 years she held her license. While she was the biological mother of only one son, throughout her career and life she became a mother to anyone who crossed her path. She had an endless capacity for loving, for giving her time and herself. In later years you could find her constantly writing cards of encouragement or simply on the phone with one of a million old friends catching up and asking how she could pray for them. She had the capacity to make you feel like you were the most important person in the world and someone worthy of being loved.

In 2000 she said yes in marriage to M.D. McCue, the man she would love and with whom she would serve Christ and His people alongside for the next almost 23 years. Together they started a new business that became their ministry. She also took his three daughters and loved them as her own.

She loved Alabama football, South Carolina “Pee-cans” and peaches, and FaceTiming with her great-grandson. She was a connoisseur of lotion and had the softest hands of any person you could ever meet—in fact, her purchases alone probably kept the entire lotion industry in business.

She is survived by her loving husband, M.D. McCue, son Chad Thompson, grandsons Luke Thompson (Keylee Thompson) and Josh Thompson, great-grandson Jase Thompson, stepdaughters Ashley McCue, Emily Willard (Jason Willard), and Meredith McCue, granddaughters Drew and Peyton Willard, and grandson Miles McCue, brother Denny Gibbons (Diana Gibbons), and sisters Lois Ann Hardy and Bobby Strange, along with many more family and friends.

Celebration of Life services will be held in two locations to allow friends and family near and far to honor her life and remember her legacy together. On October 28th at 2:30pm a service will be held in her home church in Ormond Beach, FL, at Providence Church, 1151 W Granada Blvd, Ormond Beach, FL 32174.

On November 11th at 11am a service will be held in her hometown of Turbeville, SC, at the First Baptist Church of Turbeville, 1020 Morris St, Turbeville, SC 29162.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers donations be made to the American Kidney Fund at kidneyfund.org to honor Elvera and her battle with kidney disease. Donations can be marked as given in her memory.
