WINTHROP--Aldea “Red” Maheux Cobb died peacefully in Winthrop on May 16, 2013, at the age of 91. Born in Augusta, Maine, February 4, 1922, the daughter of Arthur and Ida (Daniels) Maheux, 'Red', as she was fondly known, was one of eight siblings.\r\r\n\r\r\n Married to Willis “Bud” I. Cobb, Sr. for over 50 years, Red and Bud enjoyed a loving and strong marriage. Red is survived by three sons, Bill, Bob and Dick Cobb, and daughter Sue Cobb Doughty and their spouses, Sharon, Shayne, Betty and Jerry.\r\r\n\r\r\n Red lived on the big farm, with 17 people in the farmhouse, including her husband Bud, and their four children; her brother-in-law Chick, sister-in-law Marion and their seven children, as well as her \r\r\nmother-in-law, Ruth, and father-in-law, Nathan. Cobb’s Farm was known for its dairy herd and native corn.\r\r\n\r\r\nA splendid homemaker, her days were filled with helping to cook for 17 people, canning and freezing fruits/vegetables so the family could enjoy food from their gardens year round. To help fund college for her four children, Red worked as a waitress in McNamara’s Restaurant. Later, she was employed in the medical office of Dr. Richard Barron. Red felt great pride in being part of her children’s activities, whether it be a ballgame or concert. She enjoyed attending all the football, basketball and baseball games and loved all family get-togethers . \r\r\n\r\r\nWhen her grandkids started coming, it was a whole new world for Red. She took immense pleasure and delight in the birth of each of them. She will be sadly missed by her grandchildren Tammy Cobb Law, Debi Cobb Leary, Tracy Cobb, Casey Cobb, Darcy Cobb Fraser, Chris Cobb, Geoff Cobb, Nate Doughty, Brian Doughty, and Jennah Doughty Iggulden, 18 great grandchildren, and six great-great grandchildren.\r\r\n\r\r\nShe is survived also by her sister Florence (Mimi) Vogt, brother Laurent (Dedou) Maheux, sister-in-law Pris Maheux, sister-in-law Polly (Jackson) Cobb, as well as several nieces, nephews and cousins, all of whom she loved greatly. The nieces and nephews who lived with her on the family farm all considered her to be their “second mother.”\r\r\n\r\r\nPre-deceasing Red were her beloved husband, Bud; partners in the Cobb farm, Marion and Chick; brother-in-law Russ Cobb, sister-in-law Avis Cobb (& Don) Maxim; her brothers and sisters, Lillian Harrington, Richard Maheux, Aurore Violette, Leo Maheux, and Eddie Maheux.\r\r\n\r\r\nRed’s family would like to extend special thanks to the staff at Winthrop Manor for their caring and their extraordinary support.\r\r\n\r\r\nMemorial contributions may be sent to Maine Chapter, Alzheimer’s Association, 383 US Route One #2C Scarborough, ME 04074.
