Interment will follow at Dove Creek Cemetery. Pastor Mark Coffee will officiate. Visitation has been scheduled to begin at noon on Saturday at the church. Maudine was born September 8, 1932 to Henry S. and Willie Lee Poole. Our beloved Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Sister, Aunt and Friend left us here on Earth to join those she loved on July 16, 2015. Maudine will be missed by all who knew her. November 22, 1949 she married the love of her life Freddie Skidmore, from this union produced seven children, 10 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, one adopted great-grandnephew and one adopted son. While Maudine had lots of hardships in her life she never let them get her down. She was always joking, playing games and never afraid of an adventure. She was just a kid at heart. Fred and Maudine lost their oldest child when he was just three years old and the heartaches didn't stop there. While the times where troublesome she still held onto her love of life and people. Maudine made a friend wherever she went. While her body was sick these last few years she was still a kind, happy person. She may have gotten mad, but she was quickly over it. Maudine was preceded in death by her parents; her children, Henry, Meranda, Matilda, Raymond and Dale; her brothers, Lawrence, Virgle, Argus; her sisters, Alma and Christine; along with three infant siblings.
