Marjorie Flint Maya Obituary
Marjorie Flint Maya, of Naples, Fla., died Tuesday, July 19, 2011. She was 88.
Marge was born in Cambridge, Mass., on Feb. 17, 1923, to George Henry and Agnes McKiernan Flint, of Greenwich, Conn. Orphaned in 1937, Marge, her brother and sister were raised by an aunt, Mrs. Chester Lounsbury, of Greenwich, Conn., and spent summers with relatives on Martha's Vineyard.
Marge met her husband of 57 years, Waldemar DeWeerdt Maya, at Greenwich High School. They married shortly after graduation, before Wally joined the Marines and went to fight in World War II.
Marjorie is survived by her daughters Lesley Maya Connolly and her husband, Tom, of Naples, and Kerby Maya and Andrew Watson, of Grapevine, Texas; son Waldemar D. Maya Jr. and Deborah Cramer, of Westlake, Texas; three grandchildren, Kelly and Phil Moss, Kristin Carman and Merritt Maya; and two great-grandchildren, MacKenna and Brenden Moss.
Marge was preceded in death by her husband, Wally; her brother George H. Flint Jr., known as Bud; and her sister Agnes Merritt Flint Finn, known as Penny.
Before moving to Naples, Marge lived in Alamogordo, where she and Wally retired. Marge was an active member of Our Savior Lutheran Church, PEO of Alamogordo and LaNoche Women's Club.
For all of us who knew and loved her - she graced our lives. She will be truly missed and in all our hearts forever. Her encouragement to those of us left behind would have been a quote like this: "The faces of the past are like leaves that settle to the ground ... they make the earth rich and thick, so that new fruit will come forth every summer."
A private memorial has been planned for the immediate family. Should you wish to make a charitable donation in Marjorie's name, please do so to the , 7272 Greenville Ave., Dallas, TX 75231 or https://donate.americanheart.org.
