Dwain Horsley Bouldin

March 19, 1941 — July 17, 2015

Dwain Horsley Bouldin, 74 died at home in Matthews on July 17, 2015. She passed away peacefully in her sleep after a two year battle with a ALS. She was the oldest of Bill and Lasca Horsley's four daughters. Dwain was born in Franklin, N.C. on March 19, 1941. God gave Dwain exceptional intellectual and leadership skills. Always at the top of her class, she graduated at seventeen and enrolled in Baylor University in Waco, Texas. There she met her future husband, Don Bouldin, and graduated in three years. Together they began a fifty-five year ministry as pastor and wife. Often people remarked that Dwain was born to be a model pastor's wife. In small and large churches alike, Dwain taught Sunday School and Bible classes. She was often chosen to speak at large, state-wide events. An outstanding writer, Dwain was both a writer and editor of adult curriculum for the Sunday School Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. She taught Senior English, Debate, and Religion at South Mecklenburg High School while rearing three children and assisting her husband in multiple ministries. Dwain was bright, funny, gifted, a great friend and encourager, a terrific mom and grandmother, great-grandmother. But, more than anything, she was a committed follower of Jesus Christ. She gave Him her life as a child and He used her and blessed her all her life. Dwain was proceeded in death by her parents. She is survived by her husband, Don, and three children, Betsy Maddox and husband, Steve; Blake Bouldin and his wife, Angie; and Brent Bouldin and his wife, Britney. The Bouldins have eleven grandchildren, Ashley Scott, Mark Maddox, Laura Maddox, Lindy Maddox, Brianna Wooten, Bryson Bouldin, Brett Bouldin, Brad Bouldin, Bailey Bouldin, Brooklyn Bouldin, and Braxton Bouldin. They also have three great grand-children, David Scott, Caroline Scott, and Will Scott. Three sisters, Kirsten Horsley, Billie Horsley, and Karen Horsley; and her beloved Bichon, Jake, also survive Dwain. Memorials may be sent to Carmel Baptist Church in memory of Dwain Bouldin. -
