Mrs. Fenhagen was born June 5, 1930, in Baltimore MD. She attended Sweetbriar College and graduated from Boston College with a degree in Social Work. She lived in Columbia, SC, Washington DC, Hartford, CT, New York, NY, Georgetown, SC and finally Pawleys Island, SC. She dearly loved her three children: daughter (Leila, deceased November 7, 2005); sons James Corner Fenhagen III (Julianne) and John McFall Fenhagen, as well as two grandchildren, Aaron David Fenhagen and Jessica Moreno Trahan. Her full life was a unique mix of gracious hospitality, honest critique, passion for social justice, compassion for those in need, and a deep spirituality combined with a feisty spirit and a robust sense of humor. The breadth and depth of her experiences made their way into stories she shared to mentor, enlighten and entertain her family and numerous friends around the world.
