Maxine loved to knit!! She created some of the most beautiful knitted afghan blankets which she gifted to her family.  She also knitted countless “dish rags” that she said were just “something to keep me busy.” 

More than anything Maxine loved her family and nothing made her happier than having her family over for the holidays, Sunday dinners or just stopping in for a visit and coffee.

Maxine loved her grandchildren: Jennifer (Steve) Sherman, Angie (Steve) Eaton, Chrissy (Bronson Flegler) Thelen, Heather (Joe) Wortley, Alyson (Brian) Catlett, Gillian (Justin) Gregory and Tessa (Jake Woods) Sharp.  Her grandchildren meant the world to her.  She was also blessed with 17 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great grandchild.
