Violet Mae ‘Granny Mae’ Ranells, received her heavenly wings, June 3rd, 2024, at the age of 93 years.

To this union was born three children, Mary Sue, JoAnn, and Billy. Mae was a member of the Asher First Baptist Church, where she was active in vacation Bible school. She loved going to garage sales, taking care of her yard, whether that meant working her garden or pulling weeds, sewing, and her dogs, however there was nothing as important to Mae as her family, particularly her grandchildren.
