“In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” — Abraham Lincoln.
Brittney L. Maye, 24, of Elizabethton, passed away Monday, July 13, 2015, at Duke University after a courageous battle against cancer.
Brittney was a native of Carter County and remained as a resident until her death. Left to cherish her memory is her husband, Brandon Maye, her parents, Kim and Sharon Eggers, as well as her grandparents, Jim and Christine Smith, a special aunt and uncle, Jamie and Lee Wilson, and John Nave, her adopted godfather. She was preceded in death by her maternal grandmother, Sandra Smith, and her paternal grandparents, Robert “Bob” and Henrietta Eggers. She was also cherished by many aunts, uncles and cousins.
Brittney was a 2009 honors graduate of Elizabethton High School and a proud member of the Betsy Band and the Elizabethton Lady Cyclone Softball team. She was a 2013 honors graduate of East Tennessee State University where she earned a BS degree in Radiography. Brittney discovered her true calling in life however, was her love of children. As a result “Ms. Brittney” became a Kindergarten assistant at Harold McCormick Elementary School where she worked enthusiastically until shortly before her death.
The family would like to express a “Special Thank You” to all the employees of Harold McCormick Elementary School, Century Link of Johnson City, her church family at Cornerstone Church of Johnson City, and all the members of “Team Brittney.”
Those who prefer memorials in lieu of flowers may make donations to the Elizabethton High School Band in care of Mr. Perry Elliott, 901 Witten Way, Elizabethton, TN 37643.
A celebration of her life will be conducted on Friday, July 17, at Memorial Funeral Chapel with Pastor Jason Meyers officiating. The family will receive friends from 5 to 7 p.m. The service will begin at 7 p.m. Condolences may be sent to the family at our website,
