Maxine worked in the restaurant industry throughout her life.  She was well known in the community.  She was benevolent natured and had an unusual sense of humor.  Her smile could light up the room and she could make anyone laugh with her.  She enjoyed traveling to the beach and loved the sunshine.  Maxine cared for everyone, especially her family and friends.  She had a unique warm spirit, and she will be sorely missed.
