Relatives and friends are invited to attend a memorial service and celebration of her life at 1 p.m. on Sat., Aug. 02, 2014 at Holy Cross Faith Memorial Episcopal Church, Highway 17 South, Pawleys Island. Burial services will be private.

Mrs. Nauss was born on Feb. 10, 1924, in Sumter, daughter of Dr. Dove Walter Green of Charleston and Irene Hardwick of Mullins.

She grew up in Conway and Pawleys Island.

She was a graduate of Conway High School and received a degree in music from Winthrop College in 1945.

While at Winthrop she was president of the Episcopal Student Auxiliary and active in the German and music clubs.

She attended the Juilliard School in New York. She was a music teacher with Florence District 1 Schools and was Miss Florence of 1946.

Florence would become her second home.

In 1946, she met Ben Nauss. They married in 1947. As an Army wife, she and Ben later moved to Columbus, GA and Okinawa, Japan before settling down in Florence to raise four sons.

Upon returning from Okinawa, Mrs. Nauss started a neighbourhood kindergarten and later joined the SC State Government as a caseworker for the Department of Public Welfare.

In the early 70s, she took a break from social service and ran the Cassena Inn on Pawleys Island. Later, she worked for the Crisis Intervention Center as a counsellor and finished her career with the State Mental Health Department in Florence and Georgetown.

She was active in the Episcopal Church and was a member of St. John’s Episcopal Florence and a founding member of All Saints Episcopal Florence as well as a member of All Saints Waccamaw Episcopal Church and Holy Cross Faith Memorial Episcopal Church.

Known for her beautiful soprano voice, she often sang solos in weddings and was an active member of the choir and altar guild.

After a life of service to those in need, she retired to Pawleys Island, her childhood summer home. She spent many enjoyable days combing the beach for shells, holding a fishing rod to catch a flounder or pulling in a crab line as well as enjoying bird watching and the beauty of nature around her.

They say an apple doesn’t fall far from a tree. For Melvin, that was Pawleys Island and the salt marsh and creek that embraces it. In her active retirement, she still found time to serve others, helping to found the Smith Clinic at Baskerville with her friend Dr. Cathcart Smith as well as helping those less fortunate in the community at every opportunity.

A life long music and art lover, she was an active supporter of Brookgreen Gardens and regularly attended the Spoleto Festival in Charleston.

She was predeceased by her parents as well as four sisters; Eunice Green Smith, Virginia Green Legare’, Nina Green Wilkes, Mary Green and one brother; Dove Walter Green Jr.

Surviving are her sons, Benjamin Smith Nauss Jr. (Marty), Pawleys Island, Loren Harding Nauss III (Linda), Lynchburg, VA, William Hardwick Nauss, Pawleys Island, and Timothy Green Nauss (Carol), Macao, China. Seven Grandchildren; Elizabeth Nauss Graf (Chris), Mount Pleasant, Katherine Nauss Templeton (Brandon), Columbia, Christopher Benjamin Nauss, Richmond, VA, Timothy Dale Nauss, Los Angeles, CA, Benjamin William Nauss, Charleston, Caroline Grace Nauss, Macao, China and Virginia Irene Nauss, Macao, China.
