    My friend Maxine. I will always have her in my heart. She and I worked together at Mallory for a while. She was there for me when there was no one in that cold crowded lunchroom. Like she told me many times, “keep your chin up and never let them see you cry” were the words that helped me. Thanks my friend and rest in peace. Letty

    We are so sorry for your loss, we have missed Maxine since she moved from the neighborhood, we thought of her often and would ask Pat about her and how she was doing. She was a very lovely lady and someone we were glad to know. She will be missed. When she was out in the yard Larry would go over and talk with her. They knew a lot of the same people and Larry enjoyed talking with her. We miss her every time we look out our kitchen window.

    I knew Maxine when she would shop at Marsh. Always enjoyed our little chats together. Then Larry got to know Maxine and she was always so nice to him. She held a special place in our hearts. Larry always enjoyed Maxine and love talking to her. She was truly a nice Lady. She will be missed by many people. God Bless. Larry & Patricia

    Our thoughts are with Maxine’s family at this time. While we never met, I enjoyed phone conversations with her and the help she gave me with information on our Stewart family history, as well as the time she took to send me copies of the Eva Stewart and Marion Weaver Family – her paternal grandparents. May she forever rest in Peace.

    Mac was, is and will always be one of my very favorite people I’ve cared for. I will always remember her spunk and her big attitude. I can’t express how thankful I am to have been able to meet and care for her. Dick and Marilyn – you two will always be in my heart. For you two and Mac are a big reason I love what I do.
    With love always, Heatherr
