Aunt Maizie was a wonderful matriarch and servant of God. My earliest memories include her, Uncle Thurman, and my cousins on the farm. Love and prayers…
Maize will truly be missed I have taken care of maize for the pass 6yrs, she was like family to me and my mother who also suffers with Alzheimer’s, I truly loved her and will deeply miss her may she rest with the Lord’s .

I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother will be missed
Sweet Connie and precious Mrs. Maizie have been a joy to have as our neighbors for 13+ years. We will miss you Mrs. Maizie and are keeping the Cobb and McCuiston families in our prayers, Jesus, our sustainer to keep you all in his arms, amen.
I extend my sincere condolences to the Cobb family on their loss. Jehovah God promises us that through his son Jesus, he will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. Revelation 21:3,4
Please take comfort from this promise during your time of bereavement.
I don’t remember anyone my daddy loved to aggravate more than Mrs. Maizie. My mother has always talked about her unbelievable strength she showed during the years she knew her. She and Mr. Thurman raised four very special people. Hopefully she is being aggravated by my daddy once again.
Have known Mrs. Maizie and her family all my life. We were neighbors for many years. A special family. Prayers for peace and comfort for her family.
Ted and Connie I’m so very sorry, you’re in my thoughts and prayers.
