I COULD ONLY DESCRIBE MY GRANDMOTHER AS NOT EVER BEING A GRANDMOTHER. SHE LOVED FUN AND HER ZEST FOR LIFE WAS BEYONDS MOST COMPREHENSION. SHE STARTED OUT A POOR KID FROM LOUISIANA AND ENDED UP THE MATRIARCH OF A VERY LARGE AND SUCCESSFUL FAMILY. SHE WAS NEVER A GOOD MOTHER OR GRANDMOTHER BUT BOY SHE WAS A GREAT FRIEND. WITH MEN SHE NEVER LET ONE MONKEY STOP HER SHOW.

Maurie Lewis I AM NOT EXACTLY SURE WHEN THIS WAS TAKEN, ALL I DO KNOW IS MAYBELLE'S FATHER VICTOR DIED IN THE BEGINNING OF WW1 OF THE FLUE, SO BASED ON THAT I JUST HAD TO GUESS. HER FATHER WAS A CITIZEN OF CANADA BUT WAS BORN IN BELGIUM. HE WENT TO WORK IN NEW ORLEANS WHERE I AM SURE HE MET DRUE. HIS ONLY CHILDREN I KNOW OF WERE SOPHIA, AND MAYBELLE. IF ANYONE KNOWS ABOUT THE DEMAY FAMILY I WOULD LOVE TO LEARN MORE
