Notes

Winifred Rowley McMaster, 95, of Raleigh, NC died peacefully on Sunday, March 1, 2020 after a brief time in hospice care. She was born in Neodesha, Kansas on January 20, 1925 to Lee and Minnie Rowley.

Win, as her friends knew her, was an active member of First United Methodist Church of Winnsboro, SC where she taught Sunday school and served on various church councils. She was active in her community where she delivered Meals on Wheels and served on the Board of Directors of the Fairfield County Substance Abuse Commission for eight years. She was a past board member and life member of the Fairfield County Historical Society, life member of Friends of the Library, and past board member and member of the Winnsboro Cotillion. Win enjoyed volunteering and gave her time to many organizations such as Fairfield Memorial Hospital, Richland Children’s Hospital, and the local Girl Scout and Cub Scout troops. She liked following the stock market and never shied away from a good political debate.

Winifred was preceded in death by her parents; two husbands, John Elder Fowler and Spencer Rice McMaster, Jr.; two brothers, Joseph and Richard; and two sisters, Virginia and Maxine.

She is survived by her children, Susan (Kerry) Fowler-Hindall of Elgin, SC, and Randy (Anna) Fowler of Raleigh, NC; grandchildren, Lauren (Wes) Johnson of Cary, NC, and Bryan Fowler of Raleigh, NC; great-grandchild, Paul Wesley Johnson III (Trip). She is also survived by her stepdaughter, Tracy Brown of Columbia, SC; step grandchildren, Lindsay Brown and Chris Brown of Columbia, SC.

Following cremation, a private memorial service will be held at a later date.

Donations may be made in memory of Winifred to the First United Methodist Church, 109 W College St, Winnsboro, SC 29180. The family is especially grateful to the entire staff at Magnolia Glen Senior Living Community and Transitions Hospice Care of Wake County.
