Maxine was such a good friend. We enjoyed many years walking in the Frandor, exercising at Foster, Saturday breakfasts, and traveling. We will miss her very much.

Aunt Maxine was my favorite as a child. She always had a warm, happy smile, and I have great memories of playing at her home with Cindy a long time ago.

My heart goes out to Cindy, Dan, and the extended family. She was a light in my young life.
