NORFOLK - Winifred Wilde Hayes Maddock Baldwin, 102, was born in Twin Falls, Idaho. Her Mother, Anna Elizabeth Hansen Hayes, was born in Rock Creek, Idaho and her father John Edward Hayes, was born in Kirkwood, Missouri. She spent most of her formative years in Denver Colorado and graduated from the University of Colorado in 1927. In her childhood she developed more than average competence with the violin and piano, a love she continued throughout her life. She met her future husband, Robert K Maddock, in high school and later married him on September 30, 1930 in San Francisco California in St James Episcopal Church. He was a physician and commissioned officer in the U.S. Public Health Service. During his years of service until 1956 they lived at 12 separate duty stations. During their service career Winnie felt that wherever they were, it was to be treated as their permanent home and that she was obliged to be involved in the community. In those days it usually meant volunteer work as a Gray Lady in a local military hospital. When they settled in Norfolk, Winnie championed many civic activities. She was a volunteer at Norfolk General Hospital later to become Sentara Hospital where she earned a 50 year service award and finally retired at age 99. She was also involved with the Nursing School and worked with many other charitable organizations. These included: King's Daughters & Sons from 1956 to 2006 from which she received a 600 hour service award; National Delta, Delta, Delta Sorority by-laws committee, Associate Director in 1966, and Chairman for Scholarships; the Pan-Hellenic Conference; the Hermitage Foundation; the Junior League and as their Executive VP; the Navy League; and the Chrysler Museum. She spent a great deal of her time and effort in community music programs. These included the Virginia Orchestra Group, Tidewater Youth Orchestra of the Norfolk Symphony Association, Virginia Symphony Youth Orchestra, Virginia Philharmonic School for Children, Children's Concert, Old Dominion Symphony Council, Norfolk Symphony and Virginia Symphony. She was especially talented at fund raising and served on the Virginia Symphony Board and as its Secretary. One of her great loves was horseback riding. She was still riding horses up to the age of 100. She was a member of the Southeast Virginia Dressage Association from 1970s until 2007 and served as a participant, show manager and with their board. Winnie also enjoyed travel that included a number of exotic places. She traveled to all continents of the earth except Antarctica. Dr. Maddock died in 1982 and Winnie married Francis Bernard C. Baldwin, VMI Class of 1941 on 25 October 1990. He has been a wonderful companion to her. Both enjoyed travel to many places in the world. She is survived by her husband, Frank C. Baldwin, her son, Robert K Maddock Jr.; her grandchildren, Robert K Maddock III, Anna Louise Maddock Gooch; and her great-grand children, Andrew William Maddock, Steven Lawrence Maddock, Thomas Edmund Maddock, Ian Robert Gooch, Rebecca Elizabeth Gooch, and Matthew James Gooch .
