Maudie Roan passed away Tuesday, September 1, 2015. She was born April 14, 1926 in Woodward, Oklahoma to Albert William Cammerer Jr. and Ruby Inez Baird. She was the youngest daughter of five children and grew up on the Cammerer homestead, south of town. Maudie graduated from Woodward High School in 1944. She then moved to Wichita, Kansas and worked for Boeing Airplane Company as a ‘Rosie the Riveter’ helping to build B-17s until 1945, when WWII ended. Maudie then worked for Southwestern Bell and even crossed a picket line to help run the switchboard after the Woodward Tornado of 1947.

Maudie married Norman Clark Roan, Jr., a career Air Force officer, on December 26, 1948. Thus, began her world travels (Maudie was not in Kansas or Oklahoma anymore) and the birth of her three sons: Michael (1951) born in Stillwater, OK; Craig (1953) born in Fairborn, OH; and David (1956) born in Tokyo, Japan.

During her life Maudie lived in Alabama, Ohio, California, Japan (twice), Thailand, Utah, Oklahoma, and Texas. She was also a “single mom” during several of Clark’s deployments to various war zones. Maudie loved to shop and did her best to boost the economy wherever she lived or visited. She had some exquisite and unique treasures from her travels.

For more than 25 years Maudie participated in genealogical research, which she loved. Maudie, Clark, and her sister, Mabel, made numerous trips throughout the United States, finding unknown family members, uncovering sources, documenting cemeteries, and interviewing relatives that resulted in connecting over 4,300 relatives.

Maudie is survived by 2 sons: Michael (Amy), and David (Connie); 1 brother; 9 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. Her parents, husband, son Craig, 2 sisters and 1 brother preceded her in death.
