Gwendolyn 'Kaye''s Story
(Gwendolyn) Kaye Mayfield, 62, moved to Heaven on Friday, January 27, 2017. She was the loving wife of Thomas William Mayfield. They were married for nearly 43 years.
Kaye was born on May 10, 1954, in Richmond, and was the daughter of Lowell Grant and Margaret W. Howard. She accepted Jesus as her Savior at a young age and her faith remained at the forefront of her life. She loved sharing Jesus with others and did so often while operating the Miracle Book Room in Richmond. Kaye was also a dedicated prayer warrior for many. She was a member of Family Worship Center Church in Lexington.
Being a wife, momma and nana was Kaye's greatest joy. She was never happier than when surrounded by family, and loved entertaining them with her made-up songs and original dance moves. Wherever she was, smiles, laughter and adventure were sure to follow. She also enjoyed gardening, collecting rocks, horse and hawk gazing, and indulging in steak and chocolate whenever possible.
In all she did, Kaye loved well. She always put others first and was never too busy to play, listen, talk or encourage. She was compassionate, giving, loving, selfless, joyful and patient everything First Corinthians 13 instructs us to be. And through her words and example, she taught others that God truly is faithful.
In addition to her husband, Kaye is survived by: two sons, Marc Mayfield (Brandy) of Boston, Mass., and Matthew Mayfield (Michelle) of Richmond; two daughters, Krista Mayfield of Richmond, and Kimberly Hennenfent (Gary) of Broken Arrow, Okla.; three grandchildren, Riley Grace Hennenfent, Luke Christopher Hennenfent, and Kaylee Ann Mayfield; her mother, Margaret W. Howard; one brother, Doug Howard (Minnie); and two sisters, Peggy Collins (John) and Glenna Davis (Greg).
Kaye was preceded in death by: her father, Lowell Grant Howard; sisters, Vickie Gillespie and Rebecca Ann Howard; and brother, William (Bill) Orus Howard.
A celebration of life service will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 2, 2017, at Oldham, Roberts & Powell Funeral Home with Pastor Don Adkins officiating. Visitation will be from 4:30 p.m. until the time of service on Thursday.
