LUBBOCK, Texas - Maxine Armstrong, 90, formerly of Sikeston, Mo., died Oct. 8, 2006, at her daughter's home in Lubbock.
Maxine was born October 16, 1915, in Morley, Mo., the daughter of the late William Ward and Maude Estell May Daughtery. A member of the First United Methodist Church of Sikeston, her interests included knitting, golf and playing cards with her valued and long time friends. A final request of Maxine's was to make sure her family and friends (who she missed dearly) knew how much their love and support meant to her.
In 1939 Maxine married Dr. Richard O. Whiteaker of Fredericktown; he preceded her in death in 1955. In 1958, Maxine married Frank Armstrong of Sikeston, who also preceded her in death.
Her parents, three sisters, Leda Sisson, Sarah Peniston and June Emerson, and one brother, Will Daughtery, preceded her in death.
Her survivors include children: Paula Park and husband Tom of Lubbock, Bruce Whiteaker and wife, Elaine Hayes, of Scottsdale, Ariz. and David Whiteaker and wife, Brenda, of Bartlett, Tenn.
Those left to cherish her memory include: six grandchildren, Kevin Niedling and wife Paula, Kyle Niedling and wife, DeMarie, Brook Bridges, Travis Whiteaker, Jess Whiteaker and Eric Ningard; and five precious great-
grandchildren, Kurtis, Bryson, Briana, Hunter and Kalen.
Following cremation, a private graveside service will be conducted at Marcus Memorial Park in Fredericktown, followed by a family celebration of Life memorial service in Ballwin.
