I already miss that sweet smile and mischievous chuckles. I will miss our "pajama parties" and all of the laughs we shared.
Home at last, my friend.
Loyce Mae Guillory Mauk, wife of the late Philip Wayne Mauk, died Sunday, May 31, 2020. She was blessed to enjoy good health and significant independence until the very last of her 96 years.
She was born and raised in Lake Charles, LA to the late Jasper and Eva Fruge Guillory and took great pride in her Cajun heritage.
She is survived by her sons, Ronald Mauk and Craig Mauk; daughter Deborah Mauk; grandchildren, Allison Starnes, Nicki Mauk-Henderson, Christopher Miller, Sara Colon, Kathy Hinton, Michael Hudson, Tracy Riner, and Don Hudson; 19 great-grandchildren, 33 great-great-grandchildren, and 5 great-great-great grandchildren; sister, Della Pigott; and brothers, Ralph Guillory and Earl Guillory.
She was preceded in death by her son, Philip Wayne Mauk, Jr; daughter, Lydia Miller; and granddaughter, Karen Williams.
Mrs. Mauk was a member of Simpsonville United Methodist Church and took great comfort in the faithful support that she received from her church family long after she could no longer attend services. She also enjoyed the support of a broader community of friends who allowed her to live as independently as possible for many years.
