Maudie was born June 8, 1936 to Johnnie Cargile and Willa (Rhodes) Cargile in the Mesquite community of Limestone County. After attending the local rural schools, she attended high school in Groesbeck. She moved to Waco where she began her family with a son, Randy. Maudie moved back to Groesbeck, and was raising two additional children, James Michael and Karen, and also she baby sat several other children in her home. She later worked at the Mexia State School for ten years from 1971 through 1981. Maudie met the “love of her life,” and was united in marriage with Kenneth McClatchy in 1981. She resigned from the State School to be a housewife, and moved with Kenneth many times as his job as a pipeline welder required relocation. She enjoyed this time of her life living in different places. When he retired, they made their home in the country in the Freestone Community. After Kenneth passed away in 2007 from asbestos exposure in his career, Maudie moved to Groesbeck to be nearer her daughter and family.
