Treva Mae (Maddox) Vandeloecht, 82, of Fulton was called home to her Lord on June 3, 2017.

Born in Callaway County on May 8, 1935, Treva was the daughter of the late Fay Moore Maddox and the late Winnie Lee (Harvey) Maddox.

On July 25, 1953, Treva was united in marriage to Robert “Bob” Vandeloecht. 

Treva retired from Bank Star One in 2008 after 28 years of service.  Prior to her employment with Bank Star One, Treva worked in the offices of Drs. James Hill and George Groce for 17 years.

Treva was Community Leader with 4-H and supported Boy Scouts when her son Eric was involved.  She had been an active member of Central Christian Church for more than 60 years.  When their children were at home, Treva and Bob lead ChiRho, the church youth group.  She was the first woman Board Chair for the Church, a member of Christian Women’s Fellowship, and served in countless other aspects.  Along with her siblings, Treva was a member of the Kingdomaire Band and the Maddox Trio.  Treva was instrumental in the implementation of the Eric D. Vandeloecht Memorial Scholarships offered annually on behalf of her son through Fulton High School and the University of Missouri Columbia. 

A civic minded person, Treva was always on the go and participated in many organizations including Fulton State Hospital Foundation, Kingdom of Callaway Historical Society, Friends of the Library Board, Fulton Colleges Board of Associates, New Bloomfield Civic Association, American Business Women’s Association, and Ronald McDonald House Friends for Kids. Always a stellar example for women in the work place, Treva was a mentor to many.  She was honored with the Athena Award in 2000 for displaying excellence in her career and encouraging women to meet their full potential.  Treva was active with the Kingdom of Callaway Chamber of Commerce where she served in many aspects including Chamber Ambassador, various board positions, numerous committees, and Women’s Network Member.  She was recognized by the Chamber membership for her commitment to the community in 2014 when she received the J.

To the family:
I remember listening to the Maddox Trio singing at several of the Hams Prairie and Mokane community funerals where my grandparents lived. My grandparents were friends with her parents for many years. Treva was a fine role model for many in our communities. I know the family and her many friends will miss her terribly. God be with you all right now in your sorrow. Just remember that she will be watching over you all from Heaven. Tom and I send our deep sympathies.

Bob and Family: It is so sad to learn of Treva's passing. She was a very special and unique person. I will always remember her kind, upbeat and inspirational attitude and spirit. She was also the first person willing to write a college loan for me in 1971...What a difference that has made in my life. Thank and bless you, Treva...May each of you find and be at peace!

So sorry Bob, Joneta, and Dennis for your loss of Treva. She will always be my vision of what a strong Christian woman should be, and I always had tremendous respect for her. I know I was an unconventional member of youth activities in my early years, and I remember church camp, Bible school, and Chi-Rho activities with her vibrant spirit in the lead. If she judged me, I never suspected it. She was a kind, beautiful person who will be greatly missed in our church and community. Loved her, but I know exactly where she is and how pleased she is to be there.
