OBITUARY

Willie Maxine Songer

January 4, 1931May 21, 2020

Willie Maxine Songer passed away peacefully on the morning of May 21, 2020 in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma after a long battle with dementia.

Maxine was born, the eldest of four children, on January 4th, 1931 to James "Idas" and Lillian "Lucille" Young. She was married to her husband Ray until his death in 1994. They had four children together.

She is survived by her son Carl; her grandsons David, Merle, and Jesse; her granddaughters Milisa, Megan, and Chelsa; her great grandchildren Aubrey, Jessica, Jonathan, Christian, James, Jacob, Tyler, Hallie, Jestin, and Tripp; and great-great grandchildren Noah, Harrison, and Ariella.

She was predeceased by her parents, Idas and Lucille; her husband Ray; siblings Carroll, Hollis and Colleen; her sons Merle and Jeffrey; and her daughter Linda.

A family woman her entire life, Maxine nurtured and cared for babies the vast majority of her 89 years. She ran a home daycare, worked at a vo-tech nursery, and hosted all the holidays to make sure she got to love on her grandbabies through the years.

Living through cancer twice; the deaths of her parents, siblings, all but one of her children; and finally dementia; Maxine overcame much more sickness and heartache in her lifetime than one could imagine.

She was often described by loved ones as the strongest woman they ever knew. She will be missed by many.

Aunt Maxine was such a kind lady. She welcomed us kids in her home and treated us so well every time we saw her. She will be missed by family.

Maxine, Ray & family shopped at my grandfather's grocery store for many years. I loved visiting with her. She had the sweetest laugh, prettiest eyes and cutest dimples! May peace be with the family.
