Maryellen McEwan Obituary

Maryellen McAuliffe McEwan, beloved matriarch of Fenwick Farm, died peacefully at her home in Camden, South Carolina on Friday, September 29, 2023. She was a centenarian.

Born in Welland, Ontario, Canada, Maryellen was one of five children born to William and Mary McAuliffe. She graduated with a degree in Library Studies from the University of Saint Michael’s College in Toronto.

In 1952, she married US Marine Corps Lt. Col (ret.) Frederick Joseph McEwan and traveled the world raising their three children. In 1977, they broke ground on what would eventually become the premier Thoroughbred Training Center in Camden.  

Maryellen dedicated her time and talent to her family and the equestrian industry as a world-class trainer of people and horses -- to include Olympians and racing royalty. Her passion showed in everything she did.  Maryellen trained Thoroughbreds into her 90’s and remained part of her family’s business as a Consultant to Fenwick Farm (now Fenwick Equestrian) for over half a century.  

She was a parishioner at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in Camden, member of Springdale Hall Club, a dedicated military spouse, the consummate hostess, and a friend to people and animals. 

She is survived by her children: Wilhelmina and Frederick McEwan of Rembert, SC; Mary McEwan of Louisville, Kentucky; granddaughter, Victoria McEwan of Lexington, Kentucky; and many nieces and nephews.

A private mass for Maryellen will be held at OLPH in Camden, SC an inurnment will follow in Canada with her parents.
