Obituary for Alice Marie Maul (Majors)
Alice Marie Majors Maul of McCrory, Arkansas and formerly of Augusta, Arkansas departed this life on Tuesday, December 5, 2017 from the Woodruff County Health Center of McCrory at the age of 81. She was born in Cotton Plant, Arkansas on July 5, 1936 the daughter of the late John Kerr Majors and Mildred Caressa Pruitt.
Mrs. Maul attended Cotton Plant School and later married Mr. Leonard Maul who has preceded her in death. She was a longtime member of the Patterson First Baptist Church where she watched over the nursery for many years. She had a love for the children who all called her Momma. Mrs. Maul was a homemaker and also a caregiver to whomever was in need, you could always count on her to come and help in any way she could. She also had a love for nature and raised little wild animals such as baby sparrows and they would follow her around until they got ready to fly on their own. You would also see her with baby rabbits and squirrels that she would raise and nurture until they were able to leave. But, on occasion a squirrel would actually scratch on her door and want to come back in. A little child brought in a turtle that had a cracked shell where she glued it back together and it walked away. Her greatest accomplishment was raising her two nephews, Alex and Aaron Farley.
