Alma "Lynn" Leona Maddux-Acord, 51, lost her long battle with cancer at St. Charles Medical Center in Bend on Oct. 11, 2012, with her family by her side.
Alma was born on Nov. 27, 1960 in Palo Alto, Calif. to Evelyn and William Maddux. She spent much of her childhood at her grandmother's property in Philo, Calif., before moving to Fossil, Ore. in 1968. She did a lot of moving with her family throughout the years before settling in Prineville in 1974.
She attended Crook County High School and graduated in 1979. On Dec. 10, 1977, she married Wayne Acord in Prineville. Alma worked as an administrator at an adult care home until being diagnosed with cancer in 2011. On Dec. 15, 2011, Alma was faced with one of the scariest choices of her life — to have her arm amputated in an effort to remove the cancer. Alma then began many rounds of one of the strongest chemotherapies on the market.
Alma enjoyed spending time with her family, camping and going to the beach.
Alma is survived by her son, Jr. Acord of Prineville; granddaughter, Katir Lee of Prineville; daughter, Trista Acord of Prineville; son-in-law Butch Toepelt; grandson, Racer Toepelt of Prineville; granddaughters, Brianna Toepelt of Prineville; daughter, Nichole Acord of Prineville; Grandson soon to arrive, Wyatt, also of Prineville; brothers, Paul, Kenny, Doug, and John; sister, Trish; ex-husband, Wayne Acord of Prineville; mother, Evelyn Mitchell of Eugene, Ore.; mother and father-in-law, Wilma and Eldon Acord of Prineville; sister-in-law, Sherry Barber of Prineville; sister-in-law Wilma Bonney of Portland, Ore.; brother-in-law, Dave Acord of Moranhah, Queensland; and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her father, William Maddux, grandmother, Alma Leona (Nunn) Maddux, and her long-time best friend Butch the dog.
