She handmade wedding dresses for her daughters and many of her granddaughters. She created basketball uniforms and traveling attire for the Colbert Leopards. She retired from Diaper Jeans where she was a supervisor for many years.
Maxine told everyone she had the best kids any mom could have. She spent her golden years attending her grandchildren’s events and spending lots of time with her family. Maxine perfected the art of being the best Nanny she could be. She made amazing blueberry pancakes and the best fried chicken in Oklahoma. She loved all kinds of sports, even golf, and she loved watching the Game Show Network. She was loved beyond imagination by her children and grandchildren who take comfort in the knowledge that there is a great reunion happening in Heaven.
