Wilma Ray May

Wilma Ray May, 84, of Berea, KY transitioned to her life with her Heavenly Father on Tuesday, December 24, 2013. She was born to the late Thomas and Annie Ray, June 21, 1929, in Dothan, Alabama.

She married the late Kenneth E. May, Sr. in 1953. Kenneth and Wilma co-owned Magnolia Sales store in Magnolia, KY until 2005. Wilma lived in Berea since her illness with her daughter’s family (Diane, Evan, Brett and Ryan Smith).

Wilma was an active member of Magnolia Baptist Church before her illness. She loved her friends in her Sunday School Class and appreciated their support and kindness. Wilma’s true compassionate, kind spirit of loving and caring for others will be missed. She shared a smile with everyone and based her actions in life on her faith in Jesus Christ.

Wilma is survived by five children: Kenneth E. May, Jr. (Lisa), Eubank, KY; Douglas A. May (Kim), Waynesburg, KY; Larry May, Magnolia; David May (Sherri), Elizabethtown, KY; Diane May Smith (Evan) of Berea, KY. She is also survived by eleven grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.

Services were held in Magnolia, KY last week.
