Maynelle V. Pruett

December 23, 1938April 5, 2018

To many she was known as Mrs. May, but to most she was loved as Meme. Maynelle Pruett, 79, entered into heaven on April, 5, 2018, while peacefully surrounded by her family. May was born December 23, 1938, daughter to Bob and Allene Vaught in Redwater, Texas. She is preceded in death by her parents and loving husband of 42 years, Bobby Pruett. What a glorious day in heaven it was when these two reunited again. May has also joined her son, Richard W. Pruett and many other loved ones. May is survived by loving siblings as well as daughter, Vickie Ruiz and granddaughters Krystie Frederick, Katie Brooks, Kelsie May, Candy Phelps and their husbands, granddaughter Ericka Ruiz and grandson Richard Wayne (Bubba) Pruett. May was very honored to be Meme to 15 great grandchildren, who will miss her dearly, and many more family members. Through many years as a CISD bus driver, and recent years as a Walmart cashier, May brightened the lives of many. Whether it was her laughter or good ole fashion humor, she always brought you to a smile. Gone for now, but not forever, and always in our hearts Meme will be. Let’s brighten the world a little bit more with Meme’s love for flowers. Please come to the visitation and services wearing spring colors. Visitation will be held at Metcalf Funeral Home, 1801 E White Oak Terrace, Conroe, TX 77304, on Sunday, April 8, 2018 from 5-7 pm. Services will be held on Monday, April 9, 2018 at Metcalf Funeral Home, interment to follow services at Conroe Memorial Park Cemetery. .

I have only known May over the last year, but she made a beautiful impact on me, and the rest of our pearl family. She shared her hearts with me, so that I could pass them on to others. Each heart held her (and Vickie's) love and prayers. I have heard such touching stories from all over the globe from those who received her hearts! Thank you sweet May. Our thoughts and prayers remain with Vickie, and the rest of the family.

I remember me and Bubba Gilliand takeing Mrs. Maye and Vickie a bowl of spaghetti and the smile on their faces were priceless. She the next day said on Vickies show how good my spaghetti was that made me so happy. I knew her from CISD as well and WalMart. My mom knew her and family as well we give all our prayers to the family.

Dear Family of May Nell Pruett, I remember your mom/Meme as a young wife and mother and later as widow and grandmother. Throughout she was always the same—sweetly smiling, not complaining. I remember her mother was like that. She took her problems and worked through them. Both the Pruett and Vaught families were well known in and around the city, and we knew and appreciated them. Our prayers are with you.

Mrs. Pruett was our mom on that school bus. She loved each of us kids and would often call on our parents to brag and complain. She was never too busy to listen and give advice. I enjoyed my visits with her when possible. Thankfully to be "absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord!"

Our prayers for the family.
