Farmington Daily Times, 30 Dec 1983 pA2
Mark Maddox Sr., 88, died Thursday at San Juan Regional Medical Center. Funeral arrangements are pending with Basin Mortuary. Maddox was born in Brighton, Colo., May 14, 1895. His family moved to Colorado Springs, Colo., and then to Aztec, where he attended schools, graduating from Aztec High School, then attending New Mexico A&M. He married Jetta Lloyd Goddard at St. James Episcopal Church of Las Cruces March 11, 1916, with the Rev. Hunter Lewis performing the service. They homesteaded at Cedar Hill, a property which remains in the family. During the Depression years, Maddox built Civilian Conservation Corps camps in New Mexico, Arizona and Texas. During World War II he was employed in San Diego at Consolidated Aircraft. After the war he moved his family to Ruidoso, where he built and operated the Spearhead Cabins. Returning to Farmington, he built and operated the first "help yourself" Maytag laundry at the intersection of Butler and Main, later expanding with the Speed Queen Laundry on Arrington. He also owned and operated Maddox Quality Plumbing. He was a member of the Elks Club. Maddox was preceded in death by brothers Charles, Robert and Frank and sisters, Virginia Durkhoop, Lottie Siebert {sic Seivert}, and Emma Hughes. Survivors include his wife, Jettia Maddox of the family home; two sons, William E. Maddox of Seattle, Wash., and Mark Maddox Jr. of Farmington; and a sister, Edith Bell of California. There are six grandchildren, eight great grandchildren, and five great great grandchildren. The family has requested memorials be made to New Mexico Boys and Girls Ranch, care of Mike Cull Boys Ranch 87002, or to St. John's Episcopal Church. Funeral arrangements are with Basin Mortuary.
