November 26, 1938 - January 25, 2022
Marion Dale Mayes, age 83, went to be with the Lord on January 25, 2022 at her home surrounded by family. Dale was born in Acworth, Georgia on November 26, 1938 to Mary Kate and Ernest Lee Tanner. She is preceded in death by her parents, her beloved daughter Sharon Kim Mayes, brothers James, Gerald, and Bobby (Fay) Tanner. She is survived by her husband of sixty-four years, Harold Edward Mayes, daughters, Janice Lynn (Alan) Lawson and Teresa Pamela (Kenneth) Tracy, grandsons Joseph Edward and Joshua Alan Lawson, and a sister Carol Sue Mulkey. She has left behind life-long friends in Maryville, TN where she and Harold raised their family and were long-time members of Trinity Presbyterian Church. Dale was a wonderful homemaker and later became a nursing aid, providing care to the elderly for many years. In their later years Dale and Harold returned to Woodstock, Ga to be closer to family. Dale liked Luke 12:6-7 and kept it in her heart, “Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins? And not one of them is forgotten before God. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” Her former pastor, Dave Anderson, and Martin Hawley, (pastor of Hope Presbyterian Church) will preside over her service. Dale’s service will be conducted on Saturday, January 29, 11:00 AM at Mayes Ward Dobbins Funeral Home (Church Street) in Marietta, Georgia. The family will receive friends from 10 to 11 AM before the service. Following the service, Dale will be laid to rest at Midway Presbyterian Church in Powder Springs, Georgia. Dale always said that flowers should be enjoyed by the living. In leu of flower please donate to St. Jude Children’s hospital in memory of Marion Dale and Sharon Mayes.
