So sad, but glad we were able to get to know her just a little more. Didn’t have an opportunity to get together a lot, but I do know about her kind heart.
Sorry about your loss Ron.

Ron and family,
I am so sorry and shocked to hear of Maxine’s passing. Maxine and I were great buddies when we worked at Windsor Manor and remained close until her move to Chase. We still remained in contact through social media and I always looked forward to her pictures of the grandchildren. You will be greatly missed Maxine❤️
