Mrs. Carol Mays

January 22, 1941 — June 17, 2016

Mrs. Carol Ann (Haubenstricker) Mays of Jackson, MI, passed from our world into God’s Kingdom early Friday morning, June 17, 2016, while at the Arbor Hospice in Ann Arbor, MI. Carol was 75.


Carol was the daughter of the late William and Florence (Weber) Haubenstricker and was born in Tuscola, MI, on January 22, 1941. She grew up in the Frankenmuth area, attending St. Lorenz Lutheran School and graduating from Frankenmuth High School. On August 8, 1959, Carol married Worley K. Mays, Sr., and together they have celebrated 56 years of marriage. Carol was perpetually cheerful and had a love for people, corresponding with many throughout her life. Perhaps it was a letter keeping everyone up-to-date on family happenings or a card to brighten one’s day. She loved reading, baking and embroidery, but most of all faith, family and friends were her joys and passions in life.


Carol leaves her family to cherish her memory. Husband Worley, and the children: Waneta and Wayne Hamit, W. Kent Mays Jr., Logan and Jill Mays, and Melinda and Tom Pichan. She leaves also her four grandchildren: Josh and Courtney Hamit, Autumn and Bradford Patterson, Jack Pichan, Sam Pichan, and great-grandson Zachary Hamit, due to arrive any day. Carol also leaves a sister: Marlene Elder, a brother and sister-in-law: John and Beth Haubenstricker, sister-in-law Ruth Ann Haubenstricker Vagts, many nieces, nephews, and extended family and friends. Besides her parents, Carol is preceded in death by infant sisters: Waneta and Dorothy Haubenstricker, and a brother David Haubenstricker.


The Mays family will receive friends on Sunday June 26, 2016, from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm at the Hanlin Funeral Home 4823 W. Main St., Millington, MI 48746. There will be a brief time of visitation on Monday at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Millington from 10:30 am until services begin.
