Maxine Helen Fenger passed away from end stage dementia on Saturday, February 6, 2021. She was born on May 15, 1928 to Raymond and Clara Moore and grew up on Oxford Street in Dearborn, Michigan. In 1946, she graduated from Dearborn High School and then pursued a degree in teaching at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Prior to her marriage in 1962 to Richard W. Fenger, she taught second grade at Whitmore-Bolles Elementary School in Dearborn. Dick, as she called him, died in April 2015. Together they had 3 children: Lisa Fenger, Ronald (Laura) Fenger, and Steven Fenger. Shortly after Steven was born, Maxine and Dick moved the family from suburban Allen Park to The Brick House in Somerset, Michigan. Although Maxine did not return to full-time teaching after her marriage, she volunteered as a room mother for her children’s classes and served as a Girl Scout leader for a time. In addition to raising her children, she sold Avon to women around Lakes Somerset and LeAnn, and enjoyed working at the Somerset Township Hall. In later years, she accompanied Dick on cruises, and together traveled to their home in St Augustine, Florida annually to spend the winter. In addition to her children, Maxine is survived by her two granddaughters, Maggie Fenger and Emily Fenger.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Funeral Service will be held at 2:00 PM on Saturday, February 13, 2021 at Gorsline Runciman Funeral Homes, Mason Chapel and will be limited to immediate family only, but will be live-streamed for those unable to attend in person on the Funeral Homes Facebook page when the service begins. Burial will be at Glen Eden Lutheran Memorial Park in Livonia. The family thanks the staff of Green Acres of Mason and Careline Hospice for taking good care of Maxine the past several years, especially throughout the pandemic. In lieu of flowers, donations to Hospice would be appreciated.

AÑADIR UN RECUERDO

I have known Steven going on 30 years now. We in many ways grew up together in Maryland as we entered and worked much of our professional lives. I always enjoyed the visits from Maxine and Richard as they popped in a few times a year to visit Steven. On many visits we would enjoy a meal and a laugh. For someone so far from home it was a nice reminder of the things I had left behind and a reminder of what family was and what it stood for. The affection between Steven and his parents was very evident and I know their thoughts were often of him. Maxine would often get some time with me to ask me on how Steven was doing, and her love and concern for his well being was always very evident. They knew what was important in life and made time honor those things however trivial they may seem. Steven got a lot of help making his home in Maryland, be it working on the house or simply making it feel like one. I think a lesson in there for many of us as we go through these trying times.

When my children were born they got to spend time with her and I am glad they got to know her, if even for a short while. For a couple so obviously still very much in love with each other it was a clear that they were doing something right all these years. For me I will remember her laugh, her sense of humor, quick wit and her love for her family and mine. The world is a little less bright with her passing, but she left it so much brighter having been here. Here's to Dick and Maxine's next adventure! The love and energy they put into this world will live on in those they shared their love with. My family will carry a piece of her through out our lives. I am honored to have known Maxine all these years and she will be missed.

With Love,

Steven Parker

My husband, Bill, and sons, Thad and Adam, and I have known Maxine and the Fenger family since 1974 when we moved to Lake Somerset and they lived at The Brick House. We had a lot of good times with Maxine and Dick in Michigan and when we visited them in Florida. For many years we made it a point to celebrate Maxine’s May 15th and my May 30th birthdays together. I remember going for walks with Maxine, and for awhile we exercised in Maxine’s mom’s basement. We both helped at some of the Methodist church’s dinners. When Bill and I attended Maxine’s 90th birthday party, her balloon party hat reminded us of the party hats we made for a New Year’s Eve party many years ago - so many great conversations and good times. Farewell to a very special lady.

Laura and Ronald, Lisa and Steven: your Mother was a wonderful person, smart, and always had good ideas on how we could improve things when she worked with me as Deputy Clerk for the Township of Somerset. I think she worked at the Township for two terms (8 years).

I remember once when I had had back surgery, Maxine got overloaded. I had not taught her how to do payroll and pay day was on the horizon. She gathered everything she could find to do with payroll and brought it to the hospital, not for me to do but so she could find out what to do. The nurses at the hospital were upset with us because I was not supposed to raise my head or move around. However, after about two hours, Maxine picked everything up and left. Payroll got done. And there were no complaints from anyone!

In later years, after Maxine and Dick moved to Jackson, a group of us would pick up Maxine and go to to a favorite movie and dinner afterwards. Those were good times and fun nights.

For sure, I will never forget Maxine and Dick. They always helped me with my campaigns and were very good friends to Fred and me. They were good people.

So sorry to learn of Maxine's death. I became acquainted with her through Claire Halliwill as Maxine helped at the Township Hall back in 1988. A lovely lady.
