Maxine Nichols Barney

29 May , 19371 November , 2019

Maxine N. Barney, 82, of Midlothian, passed away peacefully on Friday, November 1, 2019. She was preceded in death by her husband, Bobby Barney; parents, Roscoe and Fannie Nichols; and her sisters, Wilma Nichols and Della Dean Mayes.

She is survived by her children, Dawn Roy and Chris Barney (Ronda); grandchildren, Aaron, Andrew, Seth and Raegan; and her brother, Willard Nichols (Ricki).

Maxine loved sending cards and writing letters that told a story. Many will miss her wonderful Christmas cards with delightful stories of the family from the previous year. She adored her grandchildren and created many lasting memories for them. Maxine and Bobby were married for 60 year; in those years they formed and cherished friendships with many people. They especially delighted in their friendship with “The Apple Dumpling Gang,” Barbara and Bob Hege, Betty and Frank Hines, and Clois and Robert Gibson – you all meant so much to them.

Services will be private. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to a charity of your choice.

Heartfelt sympathies to the family and friends of Mrs Barney. I was truly saddened to read of her passing. I had attempted to call her today to see where she was spending the holidays. We spoke not too long ago, our usual conversation about Mr B and Nascar. I will miss her, our conversations and our exchanging of cards. Rest well Mrs B..you have been called home to reunit with the love of your life. I can imagine the smiles you shared when you saw each other again.
