Reverend Margaret Glover Murdaugh, known to many as “Sister” was born May 17th, 1946, in Walterboro, SC to the late Willie and Corine Glover. She was preceded in death by a son Gerald Glover; siblings, Willie Fred Glover and David Glover.
Rev. Murdaugh was educated in the public schools of Colleton County. She worked for many years at a sewing factory located in Smoaks, South Carolina. This skill was very beneficial in providing the necessary resources to take care of her children.
Rev. Murdaugh joined the Rock of Ages CME Church at an early age and was a “dedicated”, “faithful” member who always showed her love for her church and God through service and involvement in church functions. She projected the attitude that if the “Lord” needs somebody “Here I Am Send Me”. The call to preach began in the 1970s under the pastoral leadership of the late Rev. C.J. Fennell. She entered the ministers’ training course of the Annual Conference of The Seventh Episcopal District under the leadership of the late Bishop Nathaniel Linsey in preparation for the service of God’s people. She received two ordinations upon completion of the minsters’ training course and was sent out into the field to pastor.
Rev. Murdaugh’s pastoral ministry has been “fruitful” and “widespread”. She pastored multiple churches across the State of South Carolina and assisted many when made aware of a need. She received many awards during her ministry most notably her retirement plaque from The Christian Methodist Episcopal Church Seventh Episcopal District for “Outstanding Leadership And Pastoral Service To The Carolina Region from 1980-2020”.
She loved fresh flowers and her motto was “Give Me My Flowers While I Can See, Smell, Touch Them”! Her favorite colors were orange, lime, and purple but to those that knew her anything that was “bright” she would gladly wear. She was an avid reader and walker; she loved being outdoors.
She leaves to cherish her fond memories, children, Jacqueline Rhodan (John) of Charleston, SC, Alfonso L. Glover of Walterboro, SC, Jana Murdaugh Smalls (Michael) of Charleston, SC, James C Murdaugh Jr (Monique) of Greenville, SC, Leslie E. Middleton of Charleston, SC, Scottie O. Murdaugh of Clinton, MD; nine grandchildren, fifteen great grandchildren, a host of cousins, friends, and colleagues within the body of Christ.

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whether I go ye know, and the way ye know. John 14:1-4
