  1. The news of Mae’s passing even reached Hawaii. Pat and I loved Mae and treasured our friendship with Buck, Mae and their family. Friends sent us pictures of the Goldsboro Firehouse flag at half
    staff honoring Mae for her 70 years of service. What a tribute ! Our deepest sympathy to Marvina, Herm, Clint, Heather, Tracy and Phoebe.

  2. I was mowing her yard when I was 15 . She had a German Shepherd !! He decided he wanted a piece of me !!! I still have the scar !!! I was also the papergirl for about 7 years !!! Prayers for her family !!!

  3. Mae was an amazing lady. She lived life to the fullest and was always there to help in any way she could. She touched the hearts of not only so many people but of a community on the whole.
    I am so sorry Marvina, Herm, Heather, Tracey, Clint and all others who knew and loved Mae. Mae touched many of our lives and because of that hopefully we all learned a little more about life and how to live it. Thank you Mae for touching my life. You will be missed and always hold a special place in my heart. Rest In Glory my dear friend.
