Grace Natalie Mason Maynor
Birth: Jan. 30, 1914
Huntsville
Madison County
Alabama, USA
Death: Dec. 24, 2002
Starkville
Oktibbeha County
Mississippi, USA

Grace Mason, daughter of John R. and Florence Stoner Mason, lived her first eleven years in Huntsville, Alabama. Her father's work as an accountant then took the family to Memphis and a few years later to Mississippi, where they stayed. Grace met Clayton Maynor her freshman year in college, and they married a month after her graduation in 1935. Continuing the acting career she began at Millsaps College, Grace was very active in the Jackson Little Theatre and late in life was in a few plays at New Stage Theatre. She was also involved in various volunteer work, from tutoring at the Methodist Children's Home to helping with Cub Scouts and Brownie Scouts to being a pillar of Galloway Memorial United Methodist Church. Among her many accomplishments in life was miraculously saving six puppies whose mother had been run over by a car the day after the puppies were born. When she told the vet that she could not bring herself to follow his advice and have the puppies "put to sleep," he gave her instructions for feeding them with an eye-dropper every few hours around the clock. All six puppies survived and lived long, healthy lives.
