If you were to ask Maxine what her favorite thing was her answer would be quick and decisive – her family. Maxine loved spending time with them and taking care of them. Her grandchildren and great grandchildren were her pride and joy; and she never missed a chance to cheer them on. When you went to her house you didn’t leave hungry as she was a great baker and cook.
