TRANSITION: Mae Louise Allen Mays, wife of Willie Mays, 74

Posted by Elwin Green on April 22, 2013 at 10:30 PM

Mae Louise Allen Mays, wife of baseball legend Willie Mays, died Friday at the age of 74.

Before she became Mrs. Mays, she was Mae Louise Allen, of Homewood. This is from the obituary story at www.MLB.com:


Mae Louise Allen was born on May 26, 1938. She grew up in the racially segregated Homewood section of Pittsburgh, where she was an accomplished sprinter. She attended the University of Pittsburgh where she was a member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority and earned a degree in sociology. She went to graduate school at Howard University, where she obtained a master's degree in social work. Mae worked in child welfare and, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, she eventually became a "pioneer in getting single adoptions started in San Francisco."

Mrs. Mays had long suffered with Alzheimer's disease.

Sports Illustrated Kids has a 1979 photo of the Mayses here.


There was a shooting today at Homewood and Frankstown Avenues. So far, there's only a brief notice of it on the Post-Gazette's website, and none on the Trib's.
