Maxine Mary Tindell Obituary

Maxine Mary Tindell was born to Chester and Mary Bowers on November 7, 1926, and left this earth on July 1, 2024.  She lived her life in the Bay Area for 97 years.  Maxine married L.C. (Lois) Tindell, the love of her life, and together they had 4 children. 

Her view of the Pacific Ocean and her yard on Prefontaine Drive were her pride and joy.  She tended her yard carefully, growing tomatoes, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and apples, as well as a profusion of flowers.  Max was always ready to share a start of this or that plant when asked.  She also enjoyed hosting family retreats at their small cabin on Ten-Mile Lakes.

Max was very active in sharing her talents, singing with Sweet Adelines and bowling in the Tuesday Tramps league.  She was an avid swimmer at the Bay Area Athletic Club, car racing enthusiast, and traveler throughout the world and US; to include annual vacations to Hawaii.

Maxine always enjoyed her pets, especially her dogs, Mitzi and Dillon, who were always at her side.

Max was preceded in death by her daughter, Dana Sue Tindell; her husband, Lois Tindell, and her sister, Arline Daugherty.  She is deeply missed by her brother and sister in-law, Bob and Connie Bowers of Monmouth; and by her three children, Steve Tindell and wife Nancy Tindell of Colorado Springs, Colorado, Janie Farmer and husband Chris Farmer of Huntington Beach, California and Scott Tindell of Coos Bay, Oregon.  Also, missing Maxine are many grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. 

The family will host an Open House from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, July 25, at 735 Prefontaine Ave, Coos Bay, Oregon, 97420.  To honor her love of animals, the family asks those interested to send contributions in her name to the Friends of Coos County Animals, in North Bend, Oregon. Private burial will be held at Sunset Memorial Park in Coos Bay.

Arrangements are under the care of Coos Bay Chapel, 541-267-3131. Family and friends are encouraged to sign the online guestbook at www.coosbayareafunerals.com
