Mae Magouirk dies

From WorldNetDaily:

Ora Mae Magouirk, the 81-year-old Georgia widow at the center of a contentious family fight over her medical treatment and right to live, died of a stroke today at approximately 8 a.m. Eastern, at a nursing home in LaGrange, Ga., according to her nephew, Ken Mullinax of Birmingham, Ala.

Mullinax told WorldNetDaily that his aunt's condition had improved considerably since her ordeal last month, but took a turn for the worst Wednesday when her vital signs began to weaken. On Sunday an apparent stroke hit her, causing her to have difficulty with speaking, and her blood pressure dropped to 60/30.

She died surrounded by family, including her brother, A.B. McLeod, 65, of Anniston, Ala., who had spent eight hours with her Sunday, Mullinax said.

While supporters of Mae's granddaughter, Beth Gaddy contended that her heart problem remained fatal, there is no indication that it had anything to do with her death. It is very apparent that the ordeal of starvation and dehydration Mae was forced to endure would have hastened her decline in health, and eventual death. There's no word if Georgia authorities are bothering to look into Beth Gaddy's criminal activities.

I would just like to say that I am a member of Beth Gaddy's family. For those of you who have posted these articles about her on this website, it would have helped if you had the WHOLE stry and truth about this situation! For example, I noticed that Ken Mullinax FAILED to tell you all that his mother (Mae Magourik's sister) shared ownership in some rental properties with Mae and that he and his mother had not been sending Mae her share of the money made off these properties for a long time! Poor Mae and called and asked for her share of the money and they never would send it! It is many peoples' opinion that Ken and his mother wanted Mae kept alive for the very reason that they knew if she died, they would have to buy out her share of these properties,and they didn't want to have to shell out the money!!! I would also like to say that for someone who cared SO much about his Aunt, Ken did not come to the funeral today. Ken and his mother had been stealing money from Mae for a very long time and it is my opinion that ANYTHING he has to say about Beth Gaddy should be researched VERY well before it is posted, considering that he is a THIEF!!! Maybe you "reporters" should have done a lot more research before opening your big mouths. I think you should have gotten the WHOLE story! One more thing, I also noticed that it was not posted that when Mae was brought to the nursing home where she spent her final days, SHE pulled her feeding tube out herself and said that it was NOT to be put back in! So, what do you all have to say to that???

Since Beth Gaddy refused to talk to anyone, these accusations seem pretty silly. The evidence is more than adequate to show that Beth attempted to murder her grandmother by dehydration and starvation. There's also testimony that Mae accused Beth of stealing from her and bullying her.

Since Beth is the one that spitefully refused to allow Mae's own sister to visit her, her character has been made abundantly clear.

Posting false accusation later simply confirms the suspicions we've had all along, that Beth is more than willing to use deceitful means to get her way.

I spoke to Ken several times, personally. Beth could never be reached.

That you would lie and claim that Mae pulled her own feeding tube out shows that none of what you are saying is true. There was never a feeding tube inserted. That was confirmed by the hospice.
