Eula Mae Doman

June 28, 1934 - May 25, 2020
Born in Farmville, North Carolina
Resided in Plainfield, New Jersey


Mae Doman, 85, known as Nan, gained her wings on May 25, 2020 surrounded by her family in Plainfield, NJ. She was born on June 28, 1934 to the late Peter and Sallie (Grimes) Ebron in Farmville, North Carolina before moving to New Jersey over 60 years ago.

Mae worked at RCA (Raritan, NJ) for many years before going to work for Johnson & Johnson’s Ortho Diagnostics (Raritan, NJ) for over 25 years, before retiring. After retiring she still held down part-time jobs at various times with K-Mart, Catherine’s and Macy’s doing what she needed to do, to provide for her family.

Mae was a member of the First United Methodist Church in Somerville, NJ where she was a member of the United Methodist Women and enjoyed their monthly lunch gatherings and making annual chocolate candy eggs.

Nan always had an open door at her residence on Spring Street in Somerville, NJ. She was always cooking up a storm and was known for her mac & cheese, fried chicken, banana pudding, and cheesecakes… there were always cookies in the cookie jar too! She was also known for feeding the squirrels where she had one in particular named Chuck, who at one point came in the backdoor, took a piece of candy and went back out - everyone was completely shocked! She was loved by all who knew her or came into contact with her and was known for her affectionate smile.

She leaves to cherish her memory: daughter Sallie Hagens (Aaron) of Plainfield, NJ; two sister-in-laws Audrey Small (Ophneal) of Somerville, NJ and Gertrude “Trudy” Scott of Rushville, NY; three daughter-in-laws, Vanessa, Saundra and Velda; Grandchildren and great-grandchildren: Shannon (Keitauna) - Jaden, Cyrus and Channen; Kyle (Tiane) - Kai and Kyle II; Phillip Jr (Amanda) - Victoria, Taylor, Braylon and McKenzie; Maurice - Cameron and Sophia; Shilah Bennett - Jordan, Derrick II and Xavier; Drue; Goddaughter Beth Scott-Parker of Geneva, NY; many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. She was predeceased by her two sons, James III “Jimmie” and Phillip Sr “Phil”; brothers John Bill, Lorenzo, William Jarvis, Charles Ray, Ernest, and James; sisters Bertha Cleaves, Sallie Ebron Moye Hart and Clara Ebron Stephenson.
