Obituary
OBITUARY

Emma Mae Huff, known to all as Mae, of Lonedell, MO, departed this life at her home, surrounded by the love of her family, on July 27, 2016, having reached the age of seventy-nine years, one month and twenty-six days. Mae was born in Sullivan, MO, on May 31, 1937, daughter of George Fred Mueller and Bessie Mae Mueller nee Baldridge. On October 20, 1957, she was united in marriage to Francis Edward Huff and two children came to bless this union.

Mae is survived by her husband, Francis Huff of Lonedell, MO: by her daughter, Paula Woods, of Lonedell; by two grandchildren, Matthew A. Woods and Stephanie Gilbreath, both of Lonedell; by eight great-grandchildren; by one brother, Curtis E. Mueller and wife, Carol, of Potosi, MO; by one sister, Clara Cornman and husband, David, of Sullivan, MO; by nieces, nephews, great and great-great-nieces and nephews, cousins and many friends.

Mae was preceded in death by her parents, George and Bessie Mueller; by her son, Mark A. Huff, and by one sister, Joy Gargus.

Mae was a Christian and current member of Prospect Baptist Church in Lonedell, MO. During her working years, she was employed as a machine operator for Brown Shoe Company in Union, MO. She remained with the company for about ten years and then made caring for her home and family her career. She enjoyed many things and always stayed busy, doing crafts, working in her garden and baking. She was an avid reader and loved nature and spending time outdoors. She looked forward to the Summer months when the many humming birds she fed would return. Mae was happiest when she was surrounded by her family and many wonderful memories have been created.

A loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, sister-in-law, aunt, great and great-great-aunt, cousin and friend, she will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all who knew and loved her.

Funeral services were held at 1:00 PM on Saturday, July 30, 2016, at Russell Colonial Funeral Home in St. Clair, MO, with the Reverends Steve Hodges and Paul Faulkner officiating. Private committal will take place at a later date. Memorials may be made to the family in care of Russell Colonial Funeral Home, St. Clair, MO
