I have known my beautiful neighbor since 1998, what a wonderful, lovely person and how lucky I was to have her. She always delighted in seeing and visiting with her friends and loved ones.
She was truly a person we all cherished, loved so, and will never forget.
Rest In Peace my beloved friend. All my love to your family at this time.
Your friend always, Jan Johnson

Where do I even begin? I guess 1993, that is when we moved in across the street. Maybelle and Max became a part of our family from that moment; mom and dad for us and grandma and grandpa to our kids. Maybelle watched our kids for us when they were sick and the kids have helped her with the yard or with shoveling snow.
We watched Maybelle raise Kristen with so much love and devotion. To watch that relationship blossom over time and spill over into the lives of Benjamin and Jackson is so amazing. Those boys are so very blessed to not only have known, but to have had a great relationship with their great grandma Nada.
We will miss seeing you tool around in the garage making your flower arrangements and gardening in the yard. I sure hope you left your green thumb with me. 😉
We have seen and shared so much of life with both Maybelle and Max.
Maybelle has been such a blessing in our lives and we take solace in knowing that she is in fact with our Lord Jesus Christ! She couldn't have possibly chosen a better day than Good Friday to join Him and Max in Heaven!
Like I've always said, "I want to be just like you when I grow up." 💞
We love you so very much Maybelle!
We'll look forward to seeing you again!
Danny & Lori

How lucky to have witnessed her calm joy. I first knew Maybelle in her Golden age. Even then, she exuded youth, promise, and a love that magnetized us all. She is permanent.

Maybelle was an angel we knew by name. She was deeply treasured by anyone who was lucky enough to know her. I had the privilege of being one of Maybelle’s honorary grandchildren. I felt special. Loved. And I’m not unique in those sentiments. That was one of Maybelle’s many gifts- anyone in her presence felt truly endeared to her.
Kristen- I am so sorry. I know the relationship you had with your grandma. You were her greatest joy. I will forever be grateful to you for bringing her into my life and letting me love her and be loved by her. I will help you cherish and celebrate her memory forever.

Maybelle and Max Pierce were long time friends of my late husband and me. She was an artist as evident through her flower arrangements,paintings, crafts and her home decor. She was a seamstress . She was a gardener and knew every flower/plants name. She was a chef that cooked mostly without ever looking at a recipe. She was wise and taught me many life lessons including how to learn to accept when a loved one dies. I considered her a mother. She was a trusted confident. She was a grandmother who raised her only granddaughter. Because of this, she became a grandmother to Kristen’s best friend, my daughter, Katie. (The only grandmother Katie knew). She simply was the best sister, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother aunt, sister-in-law ,cousin , niece ever.
My heart will ache for her until I die. It’s amazing how she is survived by two sisters in their nineties. I have always called her and her loving sisters the five little angels. I will end with her words to me and everyone.” Have a Happy Day” We will try ,Maybelle ,we will try.

My Grandma Maybelle was born on May 11, 1924. She did indeed pass on Good Friday, 2021.

She was one of the brightest lights in my life and I will miss her forever.

She had three children, Ron, Randy and Rick. Three grandchildren, Kristen, Dustin and Max. And three great grandchildren, Jackson, Benjamin and Oliver. All of whom she loved dearly, especially the great grands.

She was treasured by all of her many friends and held in the highest regard by all of her family.

We will celebrate her eternal life and love on April 17th at 10am. It is our deepest wish that you will join us.

My brother, Collon, said it very well in his brief words about your mother, Maybelle, and the significance of the Pierce family to the Kennedy family. I would just add that it’s hugely significant that Maybelle died on Good Friday. May all her family, friends and strangers, including our mother, Marilyn, and brother, Calvin, greet her when she arrives in heaven to glorify God forever in the company of angels and saints.

Aunt Maybelle was one of the sweetest and classiest ladies I've ever met. Though infrequent I always felt welcome in Max and Maybelle's home and enjoyed visiting with them. My deepest sympathy to her family and friends.
