Maxine was always ready to visit whenever I saw her through the years. I had not seen her in the last few years but wish to send my condolences to her family. May happy memories of family times with her bring you peace and comfort at this time.
Maxine was always so kind and friendly and cheerful. She made the best Ham gravy every Easter and was a dedicated loving mother and grandmother. I will always have good memories of her.
