Mae was a loyal member of the Church of Christ for more than 60 years and was involved in her children’s sport activities and school functions.

She is blessed and survived by four children: Donna Gail Holbrook (Eddie), Roland Earl Sebastian, (Jan), Rhonda Sue Sebastian and Terrill Joe Sebastian (Ann). She has 10 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, and sister, Louise Higginbotham.
