ANDREWS Minnie Lucille Waggoner of Andrews passed away peacefully on June 4, 2014, at Manor Park in Midland, Texas.|
Minnie was born on June 14, 1917, in Sapulpa, Oklahoma, to Earnest and Flora Bell.
She married Cecil Waggoner in 1936. Minnie spent her entire life in an "oil field environment," including Turner Town in East Texas, where she and Cecil owned and operated a trucking company. They relocated in 1957 to Andrews, Texas, where Minnie helped with the trucking company as well as keeping books for many Andrews businesses. They were always active farmers/ranchers and she had a deep love for horses. She was well-known for being the oldest Trail Rider (Fort Davis to the Annual Pecos Rodeo) for 10 years. She was a very interesting pioneer woman who was a member of the Andrews Sheriff's Posse for many years. Anyone who knew Minnie knew what a strong woman she was and enjoyed her wonderful gift of storytelling. She loved the life she lived and considered herself very blessed.
Minnie was preceded in death by her parents and husband, Cecil; one daughter, Rita; and her brothers, Willard, Earnest and Floyd Bell.
She is survived by her daughter, Sue Roberts and husband, Ross, and their children Teresa and Mike Newman, Sherry and Steve Mahaffey and Ross, Jr. and wife Susie. She is also survived by numerous great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
