Dearest Maxine we will miss you so much!

You can't even turn around in the Civic Center without seeing something that Maxine made. She brought things for the gift shop to raise funds. Fabulous pillows and baby quilts, buckeye stuff too. What a generous soul, valued friend, quilt group member and avid Bingo player.

We will miss her and yet celebrate having known such a kind and talented lady.
