Maude Elizabeth Paul, 73, of the Yellowhill Community of Cherokee, N.C. went home to be with the Lord in the early morning hours of Friday, April 20, 2018 surrounded by her immediate family and loved ones.

Maude was the daughter of the late Morgan French and Dinah (Crowe) French of Cherokee, N.C.  Maude was a member of the Anisahoni/Blue Clan and a Wife, Mother and Grandmother.  She was married to Wilbur for 54 years.  She enjoyed sewing, especially Pendleton creations and her grand-daughter’s tear and jingle dresses.  She also taught each family member how to bead.  She was an avid greens hunter which included Bear Grass, Sochan, Poke Salad, Wanegit, Watercress and Branch Lettuce.  She enjoyed feeding the hundreds of hummingbirds that visited her every year.  Maude was Director of the Rez Peggers Cribbage Club that met every Monday, during the season, at Paul’s residence.  One of Maude’s favorite things to do during cribbage games was to skunk her fellow players.  Maude welcomed all friends of the family into her home and treated them like her own.  She will be deeply missed by them all.

Maude is survived by husband Wilbur Paul; children, Dawna Paul and Howard “Eddie” Paul both of Cherokee, NC; grandchild, Karleigh Reeves; brother, Dale French with wife Nora of Cherokee, NC; sisters, Susie Roach of Cache OK and Darlene Defoe and Roberta “Ann” French both of Cherokee, NC; sister-in-law, Vera Schaaf and several Nieces and Nephews.

Along with her parents Maude was preceded in death by twin sons, Harold and Gerald Paul; brother, Eugene “Nick” French; sister-in-law, Shirley Paul and brother-in-law, Milburn Howard Roach.

Maude will be placed at the Acquoni Baptist Church on Monday, April 23, 2018 for a public visitation from 6pm to 11pm.  A funeral will follow the next day Tuesday, April 24, 2018 at 11AM at Acquoni Baptist with Pastors Ed Kilgore and Jim Park officiating. Maude will be laid to rest in the French Family Cemetery near her home along Lambert Branch Road with Dale French, Jr., Alan Rogers, Meredith “MC” Ferrier, Eugene French, Johi Griffin and William Cuprak acting as pall bearers.  Honorary pall bearers will be Jonathan French and James “Spooky” Sherrill.

Sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about her and bring her back again. John 5:28, 29 gives this assurance.

Dear Family,
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your Dear loved one. Our loving Creator never planned for death to be part of his original plan. There is such a loving scripture found at Revelation 21" 3 & 4 which reads :
With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say " Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, And they will be his people, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be any more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be any more. The Former things have passed away "
I hope these words help you find comfort and also give you hope for our near future.
