COLUMBIA, S.C. – Ida Dargan McMaster, mother of Attorney General Henry McMaster, passed away peacefully in her sleep at home on Saturday night. She was 88.

Attorney General McMaster had planned to make an announcement this week regarding his plans for the 2010 campaign for governor, followed by a tour of the state. However, all campaign plans for this week have been postponed.

Funeral services for Ida Dargan McMaster will be held on Tuesday, August 18 at 4:00 PM at First Presbyterian Church in downtown Columbia.

Today, Attorney General McMaster issued the following statement:

“My mother was an extraordinary woman. She taught us six boys about love and life, and I will miss her greatly.

“My mother and father were married for 65 wonderful years. Their devotion to each other, and their sacrificial love of their children and grandchildren, serve to this day as a model for all of us.

“My family and I have been blessed beyond measure, and we have never taken our blessings for granted. My father is 95 years old and is still very active and productive.

“I have decided to postpone all political events scheduled for this week. At this time, all my father’s children, grandchildren, in-laws and extended family want to be together to remember the remarkable life of a great lady.

“I speak for my father and the entire McMaster family in thanking all our friends who are thinking about us and have us in their prayers.”
