Mrs. Mauldin was born Nov. 23, 1927, in Mississippi, the daughter of Clayton and Myrtis Causey.

In her elderly years, she enjoyed working at Sam’s Wholesale in the demo department. Lillian was a blessing and an inspiration to everyone she met. She was a kind, loving, caring and selfless wife, mother and grandmother who always had an invaluable piece of wisdom to pass on.

“Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth.” I Corinthians 13: 4-6. Her life always reflected the love of God through her willingness to serve others.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her first husband, Ford R. Wheat; and one son, Kenneth W. Wheat.
