March 20, 1920 - August 31, 2012
Maude Marklin Hypes Canterbury, 92, of Mullens passed away on Friday, August 31, 2012 at her residence following a short illness. Born March 20, 1920 at Mullens, she was the daughter of the late Buford E. Hypes, Sr. and Annie Evelyn Hypes. Mrs. Canterbury was a former employee of the Wyoming County Board of Education retiring from Mullens High School after 42 ½ years as a Business Education and typing teacher. She was the sponsor of the Junior/Senior prom of Mullens High School for many years earning the funds through Tom Watt, candy sales, and magazine drives. She was a life long resident of Mullens, graduate of Mullens High School class of 1939, and a graduate of Concord Teachers College earning a Bachelor's degree in Business. In her leisure she enjoyed playing bingo, dancing, loved to sing, and traveling with her family, especially traveling to Las Vegas with her husband. She loved her dogs. When we pause to remember Maude, we will remember her love of teaching, her love of her students, and the many lives she influenced.
