Mary Maye Grafton, also known as Mazie, passed away on January 12, 2024, at the age of 99 in Kansas City, MO. She was born on February 3, 1924, in Bakersfield, Missouri. Mazie was a spunky, resourceful, determined, prayerful, and loving individual.

She is also survived by her grandchildren, Chase, Taylore, Sean, Steven, and Mia, as well as seven great-grandchildren. Mazie was preceded in death by her husband, Rolla R. Grafton, and her daughter, Joyce Marie Grafton.

Mazie dedicated her life to being a homemaker, creating a warm and loving environment for her family. She found joy in gardening and sewing, hobbies that brought her fulfillment and relaxation.

Mazie worshipped at the First Baptist Church of Raytown, where she found spiritual guidance and community.

Maxie was a great lady and friend. She has gone home, where we all long to be. Her suffering is over and she has the seen face of Jesus Christ in all his glory, also Rolla and Joyce which she longed for.
She will never be forgotten.

Steve and Earnie, sincerest condolences on the loss of your mother. I loved her dearly. She was a lovely, wonderful person and great neighbor and friend to my mom. She will be missed by everyone who knew her.
