Birth: Jun. 27, 1924
Aspermont
Stonewall County
Texas, USA
Death: Jun. 15, 1954, Mexico

She was killed in Irapuento, Mexico where she was serving as a missionary for an orphanage. A war lord wanted the children to work his factories so she was moving the children away from him to safty when the brakes went out in the bus. Killed the driver but she got out, waved down a bus to climb down the hill to get the children and drive them 100 miles to the next hospital. After last child was taken off truck, she fell to the ground because doctors said she died in the crash. This was told to family after truck driver got out of prison(he told everyone about Aunt Mae so he was sent to prison).
