Maxine was a very peasant lady, I admired her in many ways. I knew Maxine through The Daughters of Isabella, a women's group. She was Regent at the time and was a good leader. I would sometimes see her on the golf course . Always a friendly smile and hello. Rest in peace Maxine.

We were sad to hear of Aunt Maxine's passing. She was a terrific aunt about who I have many fond memories. I will always remember the stories Mom used to tell of golf outings with Joe and Maxine. I admired her straight-forward attitude and great sense of humor. Deb, Andrew, and Aaron join me in expressing deepest sympathy to the family. Tim, Deb, Andrew, and Aaron
