August 18, 1932 - July 9, 2021
Mai Stainbrook died on Friday, July 9, 2021 at A. G. Rhodes Wesley Woods. Mai Stainbrook had several longtime friends, many of whom she survived. She met her longest friend, Anne Fauver 52 years ago. Mai Stainbrook was a common sight in Decatur as she took her daily three-mile walks. She regularly swam at the Dekalb Medical Fitness Center, but her favorite mode of exercising was dancing. She was excellent at it and her dance card was always full. She was truly the life of many parties always with her gin and tonic close by. She also loved playing bridge and poker. She played basketball at her junior college and the coach convinced her to come to Atlanta to play. The coach got her a job at Sears Regional Catalog Store on Ponce de Leon. For most of her 40+ years there, Mai handled customer complaints. That was back in the time where your letters had to be perfect with no erasures! As Sears shut down the facility, she learned to operate the switchboard. She was the last employee to go. Mai had an excellent sense of humor often at her expense. Her favorite came from the Olympics in Barcelona. She and Anne Fauver got on the bus to go to the airport, but the bus stopped in the middle of town obviously at the end of the line. Neither Mai nor Anne spoke Spanish. Anne told Mai to hold the bus there and she went to find someone to translate. Anne was gone before Mai could object. Mai sat on the stairs of the bus so the driver couldn’t close the door. Needless to say, the driver was frustrated. After what seemed like an eternity Anne came back with a person who convinced the driver to go to the airport and Mai relinquished her post!! Mai loved to travel and particularly enjoyed the cruise along the Alaskan coast. She was an avid Braves fan and will be missed by those who knew her. A Graveside Service will be held on Saturday, July 17, 2021, at 11:00 A.M. at the Decatur City Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts can be made to the Atlanta Humane Society, Howell Mill Campus, 981 Howell Mill Rd. NW, Atlanta, GA 30318 (404-875-5331) in memory of Mai Stainbrook.
