Obituary

Sidney Nunnery, a native and long-time resident of Edgemoor, SC, passed away on March 30
at the age of 89. He was the youngest of five boys born to Henry Grady Nunnery, Sr. and
Genevieve Collins Nunnery. His brothers, who are all deceased, were Grady,Jr., Fred, Jack, and
Tuck(wife Margaret Mitchell Nunnery also deceased). Sidney graduated from Richburg's
Lewisville High School in the first class to attend a newly added twelfth year of formal high
school. Very athletic and despite his small stature, he excelled on both the baseball and
basketball teams at Lewisville High School. Sidney went on to graduate from Clemson
Agricultural and Military College with a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Engineering
in 1953. While a senior at Clemson he met his future wife, Barbara Galbraith, a Winthrop
College student, on a " blind date". They were married for 64 years before Barbara passed
away in 2018. Sidney served in the 6555th Motor Vehicle Squadron at Patrick Air Force Base
in Cocoa Beach, Florida after graduation from Clemson. Upon completion of his two years of
active duty, he returned to Clemson to obtain his Master's Degree in Agricultural Engineering
finishing in 1959. In 1963 Sidney took an engineering position with the DuPont Company in
Camden, SC where he and Barbara settled and raised their two daughters.

Upon retirement from DuPont, Sidney returned to his hometown of Edgemoor with Barbara
where he started his second career as a small scale farmer raising cows for beef, growing
sweet corn and other vegetables, and tending to all the farm chores often with his four
grandchildren in tow who were more than delighted to be of help. Sidney was very active in his
church and served as a deacon and an elder for many years in both Camden and Edgemoor.
He was a long-time member of the Lions Club and also served in the Air Force Reserves for
several years. He is remembered by all as a hard worker who was always ready and eager to
lend a helping hand to friends, family, church, and community.

Sidney is survived by his children, Becky Clark (Ron), Lynn Lienert (Greg), grandchildren, Josh
Clark (Jackie), Matthew Clark, Seth Clark (Hillary), and Hannah Younce (Mark), greatgrandchildren, Charley Clark, Rhett Clark, Leia Younce, and Chloe Younce, two sisters -in-law
Annie Mitchell Nunnery and Carolyn Davis Nunnery, brother-in-law Jim Galbraith(Joyce).

A special thank you to the caregivers and staff at HarborChase of Rock Hill Memory Care for
the devoted kindness, care, and love they provided Sidney and his family and to Providence
Care Hospice.

Under the present circumstances a private family graveside service will be conducted at the
Harmony Baptist Church Cemetery.

Memorials may be made to either Edgemoor ARP Church, P.O. Box 20, Edgemoor, SC 29712
or Harmony Baptist Church Cemetery Fund, 5403 Harmony Church Rd., Edgemoor, SC 29712.

I knew Sidney and Barbara when my husband, Everett was living at Harbor Chase. My husband and sons graduated from Clemson and we all enjoyed talking about the days they spent there. My son, Stephen, especially was drawn to them. I remember them as kind, gentle souls. I was so sorry to learn of Sidney's passing. We can take comfort knowing that he and Barbara are together again!
