Our beloved Mother and Grandmother, Helen Maxine Badsky, born on May 26, 1935 in McCurtain, Oklahoma passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by family on November 16, 2020 in Lemoore, California.
Maxine, the oldest of three siblings, spent her childhood between Oklahoma and Armona, California. Then being raised in a military family she lived on various bases but felt very fortunate to spend her entire high school years at Key West High School. She graduated a proud “Conch” in 1953.
With strong family ties in the valley she relocated back to Hanford where she worked for Pacific Bell for many years as a switchboard operator. Maxine and her husband LCDR Ted Alvin Badsky, USN, raised her sons Don and David Shetters as well as their daughter Kimberly Ann Badsky Lundin in San Diego and Lemoore, California.
