Melba Mauldin peacefully passed away in her sleep on Friday, August 7, 2020 in her home in Fayetteville, NC following a hard battle with cancer.

She was born on February 25, 1944 in Bluefield, WV to Ethel and John T Couch. Melba was married to her late husband Andrew for 57 years and is survived by her two daughters Michelle Mauldin and Yvette Mauldin of Fayetteville, NC, and her grandson Jason Pinckney; her sister Kay Johnson and her husband David. her brother Johnny Couch; nine brothers and sisters in law and their spouses; a host of nieces and nephews and numerous friends.

Melba was always the life of the party and loved to laugh. She had so much grit and fire right to the end (a true redhead) and will be remembered for her giving spirit, her hospitality, and her cooking.
