Maxine was in our bowling league and without a doubt one of the classiest people I have known. She was kind, soft spoken and always looked so "put together". My condolences to her children.

Remembering my Grandma. Went through pictures & photo albums earlier and it was emotional. She lived a GREAT life, was lucky enough to be married to 2 men in her lifetime that LOVED her so much, and was still living life right up until she wasnt. We would all be so lucky to live life until 93 yrs old and still have our wits about us! She walked with beauty, always smelled amazing and had the best smile! I will miss her laugh and mostly I will miss her! I love you Grandma. Rest In Peace. ❤

Oh, my long time bowling friend. Such a positive person who never hesitated to share her love. My sympathy to her family who were blessed to have had her in their life.
