Obituary of Earline Maples

Mary Earline Maples was born in Lenox Missouri on January 30th, 1931 to Wesley Earl Parks and Mary Anlee Black. She passed away at the age of 90 in her home on September 27, 2021. Earline was united in marriage to Gerald Franklin Maples on January 15, 1948 in Mountain Home, Arkansas. She was baptized on September 21st, 1958. Earline loved raising flowers and always had something beautiful in bloom. She treated her cattle like family, often even naming them. She was a tireless worker on her farm and in her yard, right up until her last cancer diagnosis. She loved her children and family and will always be fondly remembered as “GG” by her grandchildren and great grandchildren, whom she loved to spend time with. She was a great example of a “can do” attitude, and without self-pity found a way to stay happy and positive in the face of setbacks and tragedy. Earline is survived by her children, Gerald R (Rita) Maples of Kingsland, Georgia; Marilyn (Ray) Goforth of Licking, Missouri; Lonnie Maples of Salem, MO; Donnie (Jenny) Maples of Edgar Springs, MO; and Linda (Terry) Jones of Licking MO; 11 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. She is also survived by her sister, Dottie (Andy) Channell of Illinois and brother, Bonnard (Stella) Parks of Lenox, MO; and two sisters-in-law, Wanda and Belle Parks. Earline was preceded in death by her husband, Gerald F. Maples; both her parents; and by her sisters, Daisy Cash, Lillie Reed, Imogene Roques; an infant sister, as well as her brothers; Glen, Edward, Don, and Jim Bob.
