Myra Gabriel Mauldin, 82, of Mocksville, N.C., passed away on Friday, Dec. 1, 2023 at Mocksville Senior Living in Davie County.

Gay, as she was so lovingly known as, was born on Oct. 22, 1941 in Stanly County, N.C., the daughter of the late Clyde Benton Mauldin and Mary Roena (Austin) Mauldin.  In addition to her parents, Gay was preceded in death by: a son, James Darrel Mauldin; and a brother, Donnie Clyde Mauldin.

In life, Gay graduated from Stanly County schools. Later, she chose a career in the service industry where she worked as the manager of The Waffle House for many years until she retired. In her free time Gay enjoyed watching TV, reading, listening to music, and dancing. Of all the things Gay loved, her favorite was her Sunday family dinners and spending time with her family.

Gay leaves behind to cherish her memory: 2 daughters, Ondie Mauldin Brewer (David), and Tanya Mauldin Stanley; a son, Claude Thomas Mauldin III; a brother, Bobby Mauldin; 3 sisters, Sandra Goodlett, Sylvia Walton, and Carol Kirkman; 3 grandchildren, Steven James Stanley, Zachary Spencer Stanley, and Thaddaus Franklin Leonard; and 6 great-grandchildren, Baydon Alexander Stanley, Easton James Stanley, Denver Lee Stanley, Wyatt Spencer Stanley, Wesley Scott Stanley, and Brooks Miller Goins.
