Malla (sister Mae of Xanga)

Malla sister Mae

Do you remember this beautiful lady? Yesterday I heard that she had succumbed to the melanoma that she was diagnosed with, two years back. She was one of the sweetest xangans I had known. Her id was sister mae on xanga, and her name was Malla Beardshear. She was always advising every one to use sunscreen. Always a gentle soul, so courteous and gracious in her comments and the sweet blogs that she would write. I am so sad to hear that she passed away. She was a facebook friend, and I think even as late as last week she had commented on my page.

She lived in Warsaw MO, and was married to Jeffrey. He was such a good support to her throughout her ordeal and took care of her extremely well. She was so in love with him and was so grateful to him for all that he did. I called the newspaper in Warsaw, and got the name of the Funeral home. I have sent a letter to her husband and daughter expressing my feelings. If any one is interested in expressing their condolences, please send a letter to Jeffrey , C/O Rea Funeral Chapel, 1001 S Limit Ave,  Sedalia MO 65301.

My regret is that when I went to the Ozarks last year, I was planning to look her up, but didn’t get a chance to do that.  It will always be an ache for me.
