She will be forever missed by her daughters Nancylee Myatt and Celia South. Her sister-in-law, Ana Myatt. Her numerous nieces and nephews, including Tanya Beard and husband, Al, and George Gummere. Cousins including Art and Doris Banducci and Gary Hale, his brothers and children. As well as many dear friends, Carolyn and Ron Leaverton, Sandy Garner, Msg. John O’Donnell, along with those whose lives she touched from the neighborhoods and towns in California, Arkansas and Oklahoma, which she Pink lived, worked and played in. Maye graduated from Sallisaw High School in 1947, and remained friends with her classmates throughout her life, returning to the reunions through the years. She went to her last class reunion two years ago. Maye continued her education in Miami, Okla., she then moved to Tulsa where she met Pink. They moved to Redondo Beach, Calif., where Maye cultivated friendships that would last a lifetime. She added her energy, creativity and love of life to everything she did. Maye was Girl Scout leader whose campouts became legendary. And a member of the PTA, where she performed in talent shows and helmed booths at the carnivals. Maye and Pink joined the Sportsman Club, where she worked at pancake breakfasts, fireworks stands and organized Easter egg hunts. Maye and Pink were charter members of the Rolling Hills Country Club, which started a life long love affair with golf, and more importantly, the friendships and fun a country club provided. When they moved back to Arkansas to retire and be closer to family, they became members of Harrison CC and Fayetteville CC. Through the years Maye put her office and business skills to work. She worked for Walsh Glass and Lair Oil. She and Pink owned and operated Myatt’s Market. Maye started her own carpet cleaning business covering northwest Arkansas and northeast Oklahoma. But Maye liked to say her best business moves were spent by Pink’s side. She was the consummate salesmen’s wife. A beautiful social butterfly who could throw a cocktail party together at the drop of a hat. Pink would confirm that he closed more deals having Maye on his arm. May loved to cook and entertain. She was a “yellow dog” Democrat and loved following politics. A Sooner and Razorback fan. She and Pink loved to dance, at the club, at parties and in their living room. When they truly retired, they moved back to Maye’s beloved home town of Sallisaw. Near her mother, her sisters, her cousins. She woke up everyday “Grateful for another sunrise” which she watched come up over the serene pasture and landscape where she started. And now Maye is home once again. Funeral services will be 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 18, 2012, at Mallory-Martin Chapel in Sallisaw with burial at Brushy Cemetery under the direction of Mallory-Martin Funeral Home in Sallisaw.
