Mayes (now deceased); and their children survive them - daughter, Mary Lynn Billings Williams and her husband, David L. Williams; and son, Robert Charles Mayes and his wife, Theresa Mayes.

She also counted among her children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren born to Peggy Mayes, Bob's second wife, (recently deceased). We called ourselves a thoroughly modern extended family. We received the gift of extra sisters and brothers, cousins, aunts and uncles. Our parents made that happen because of their love for us. She was born in Texas in 1924, the first daughter of ten children, to Clarice Pierce "C. P." and Mary Rosalie Roy Rumph. Her parents; brothers George and C. P. Jr. "Tex" predeceased her; as did her beloved sister, Norene Titus. She is survived by her brothers, Harold, Charles, David and Ben Rumph; and her sisters, Doris Adamson and Kay Sorrels. All of her nieces and nephews and their children were dear to her. She loved her family and tried to stay connected with a phone call or a visit now and then. She was immensely proud of every one of us. Her springing spirit made anyone who witnessed her accomplishments stand in awe. She always brought a huge ball of energy into every event or occasion that would inevitably dazzle and astound those around her. In addition to her family, her professional life was another source of pride. Among her primary accomplishments include two books: "Shades of Old Chaparral" and "New Mountains to Climb", both self-illustrated and published accounts - one in poetry and the other prose - of her life experiences in general and on the job. She was a longtime member of the American Nuclear Society and took its mission to heart. During her thirty plus years as a federal employee, she worked on the Department of Energy's task of developing measurement standards for radiation transuranics. Quality Assurance regarding nuclear waste cleanup was most vital to her. Several of her paintings (copies appear in her books) are in the collection of the new Atomic Testing Museum in Las Vegas, NV, a Smithsonian affiliated museum honoring the Nevada Test Site. Among dozens of other accomplishments, in 1999, she served as a volunteer U. S. Forest Service Ranger at the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest Visitor Center in Big Lake, AZ.
