For almost 30 years, Mrs. Brawley was owner of Mulberry Plantation, near Moncks Corner, S.C. In 1984, she moved briefly to Charleston before resettling in Pinopolis, S.C.

She and Mr. Iselin, a textile executive, moved to Greenville, S.C., in 1933. Mr. Iselin was killed in an airplane accident in 1951, leaving her a widow with five young children.
She later married Marion Brawley Jr., an attorney, and in 1959 settled in Berkeley County, where she devoted her management and gardening skills to the care and improvement of Mulberry Plantation. For many years, she was an active volunteer worker at Berkeley County Hospital, and while in Greenville, she was a volunteer for several years with Shriners Children's Hospital. Mr. Brawley died in 1963.
