This obit was printed in the Teague Chronicle. There are several mistakes. I
don't know if that was done by the paper or the person who transcribed the obit.
I have typed it as I received it.
M. L. May was actually her second husband. Her first husband, Tom Scott was killed in a logging accident about three weeks after their marriage.
Also, Barnie was most likely her step-son Bonnie Gibson.
