Sister Lucille Coleman Maye Griffin was born to Mr. Millard and Elouise Pressley Coleman in Georgiana, Alabama, on November 31, 1943. She attended Spring Hill Baptist Church and united with that church at an early age, and she served there as a devoted member until she left Alabama. Her formal educational training was received from the Georgiana Training School. Lucille later married Joe Maye in Butler County, Alabama and to this union, two children were born.
Lucille was known for her cooking skills and most famously her cornbread dressing. While cooking was one of her hobbies, she also enjoyed making everyone feel beautiful and serving as the family historian by keeping the annual family reunion going down throughout the years.
Lucille leaves to cherish her memories, a loving mother, Sister Elouise P. Coleman; two children, Curtis Maye and Marie (Jerome) Wilder: one grandchild, Omario; five siblings, Millard Jr., Geneva, Lee, Clementine, and Lillie (Kazak); one devoted brother, Alfonza (Yoake); one adopted sister, Ashanti Webb and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
