Life of A Loving Mother
Mae F. Alexander

Our beloved Mother, Mae Francis Alexander, departed this life to be with the Lord on May 11, 2011. 

Mae Francis entered this world, October 15, 1930 to the union of Coy and Nettie Mae Manley.  She was the second child of five children. She was born in Stephens, AR and later moved to McNeil, AR where she received her education.  She accepted Christ at an early age and attended Unity AME Church until she became ill.

Mae Francis married the love of her life, A.C. Alexander.  They settled in Magnolia, AR.  Her most fulfilling job was being a mother to their six children.  She also worked as a cafeteria worker and at Tommie Maries Beauty Salon.  After retiring, she enjoyed cooking and visiting her children.  She also enjoyed watching sports.

Mae's memory will be cherished by her one and only daughter, Alvin Jean (Danny) Lambouths; three sons, Louis Alexander, Aaron (Darlene) Alexander and Gregory (Anita) Alexander all of Muskegon, MI; one sister, Effie Ransom of McNeil, AR; two brothers-in-law, J.C. (Glenda) Alexander and Ernest (Sue) Alexander of Magnolia, AR.  One special granddaughter, Trenese Alexander (Shon) Jefferson of Shreveport, LA.  She also leaves a host of grands, great grands, nieces, nephews, and friends.

Mae was preceded in death by her parents, her beloved husband, two children, Thelton (infant) and  VanEarl (Ricky) Alexander, two sisters, Mary Jane Turner and Marene Kimble and one brother, Louis (Bubba) Manley.

       Her Journey's Just Begun

Don't think of her as gone away-
her journey's just begun,
life holds so many facets-
this earth is only one.
Just think of her as resting
form the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.
Think how she must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.
And think of her as living
in the hearts of those she touched...
for nothing loved is ever lost-
and she was loved so much.
