Maxine was a good friend to my moma . And when I meet her a few years ago. She had came to a class reunion that moma had planned. She came to our church in Burnsville NC . She visited my moma before passed away. Then when she would come to the mountains. She would let me know. She would pick me up. And would go to pizza hut. And I enjoyed those times. And I know she did too. I will seeing this summer. Im very proud to have meet and known Maxine. I love and will miss you. Until I see you again.
Thank you. She will be laid to rest next to my dad in June around the decoration.
Maxine was a true believer in God. We have shared many prayers and experienced the results of those prayers, whether answered, delayed or denied. Her prayers were centered around her family and their welfare. I miss her and will always have a special place in my heart for her. She was one in a million.
Years ago, Maxine was active in the Asheville District United Methodist Women. I knew her through that organization and also through Brooks-Howell Home where I was on the staff. I haven’t seen her for years but have fond memories. We always exchanged Christmas cards, but this year’s card to her was just returned. I decided to check the web and found her information here. The Home’s director, Nancy Garrison, also knew and was fond of Maxine. We both send our sympathy to her family.
I met ms Maxine while attending cokesbury Methodist. She was always so sweet and kind. Always speaking to you. She never ignored you. The last time I saw her it was when she was grocery shopping at food lion. Wish there were more people in this world like ms sweet Maxine.
