Carole June Mayes

August 15, 1937 — October 20, 2021

Carole J. Mayes, 84, of Beebe


Carole Mayes passed to her Heavenly reward on Wednesday, October 20, 2021. Born August 15, 1937 in Lawton, Oklahoma, Carole is survived by her husband of nearly 66 years, David Lee Mayes of Beebe; a son, David M. (Donna) Mayes of Searcy, Ark; two daughters, Gail R. (Steve) Sexson of Jerusalem, Ark., and Laura C. Mayes of Benton, Ark.; two sisters, Joan Free of McKinney, Texas and Lila (Ray) Thompson of Metarie, Louisiana; and a bonus son, Donald Bratchett of Jacksonville, Ark. She is also survived by eight grandchildren; Matthew (Michiko) Sexson, Mark (Brittany) Sexson, Marshall (Amy) Sexson, and granddaughter-in-law, Courtney Sexson; Jared (Rebecca) Mayes and Justin Mayes; Nathan Mayes and Rachel (Spencer) Davis; and 16 great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends. She is preceded in death by her parents; her daughter, Cheryl LeeAnn Mayes; her brother, James McIntire; her daughter-in-law, Karen Mayes; her grandson, Micah Sexson; and a great-granddaughter.

Quick-witted and hard working, Carole loved to bake bread (and it was delicious) for those she knew who were ill, make afghans, quilts and pickles for her children, grandchildren, and many others. Carole would tell it like it is, or as she saw it. She was a force of nature and leaves an empty space in all who knew and loved her.
