Mercantile family would like to thank our family, friends and customers
for all your loving support and understanding as we have dealt with
Connie’s illness over the past days, weeks and months.
Earl - Wife, Mom, Sister, Aunt, Grandmother, Friend, Proprietor,
Fighter, Survivor, and Loving Soul - lost her battle with cancer on
Tuesday, July 12. The Mercantile was her dream and vision, a vision
that has grown into reality over the past 23 years, and a store that has
grown from a business to a welcoming place where customers became

The store and her
vision will continue, and her vision and spirit have shaped much of what
we do, but she will be greatly missed.
Visitation will take
place at Duckett-Robinson Funeral Home in Central, SC on Thursday, July
14 from 6-8PM with a vigil service beginning at 6:15 PM. The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, July 15 at 10:30 AM at Saint Andrews Catholic Church in Clemson.
In lieu of flowers, contributions in her memory may be made to the
