Ralph and Faye Motsinger Mahuron Fund

Both Ralph and Faye (Motsinger) Mahuron were lifelong residents of Washington County. Ralph worked in many different jobs. Both Ralph and Faye worked in the Charlestown Powder Plant during World War II. Although they did not have children of their own, they did love children.

Ralph also enjoyed politics and was the first Mayor of Salem to be re-elected. Among the town developments for which he was heavily responsible are Henderson Park and the Senior Citizens Center. Ralph and Faye led a quiet, conservative lifestyle, but also were active in their community through the Masonic Lodge, the Order of Eastern Star, and their church. They were also interested in the history of Washington County.

It was through their conservatism that the Mahurons were able to form a large estate. Through their generosity, the fund now benefits the three area high schools with scholarships, the Washington County Memorial Hospital, Blue River Baptist Church, Salem Baptist Church, Olive Branch Church, Salem Masonic Lodge, Order of Eastern Star, the Senior Citizens Center, Blue River Cemetery, Olive Branch Cemetery, Rodman Cemetery, and the John Hay Center Foundation.
