Maxine Daugherty was the most amazing woman there was! She was born Aug. 22, 1927 and lived an amazing 93 years. She passed Aug. 6, 2021 in her home, surrounded by the love of her family and a view of her garden. Maxine worked for 30-plus years at Roseburg Forest Products as a secretary. When she retired from RFP, she then put her time into the Winston VFW, where she kept their finances in order. Her favorite part of retirement was working on her amazingly beautiful yard, and the years she spent reading to kids at Green Elementary. She absolutely loved working with the kids! Maxine is survived by her son, Barry Baker; grandchildren, Jessica, Kayce, Lauren, and Brandon; she also has five amazing great-grandchildren who were her world! She is preceded in death by her son, Les Cornwell, and many other important family members. In lieu of flowers, please donate to a youth reading program or your local VFW.
