Maxine Oppleman Feinman, 90, of Lynchburg passed away Tuesday, March 5, 2019 at her residence at Westminster Canterbury. She was the wife of the late Edward Ronald Feinman.

Born in Lynchburg, October 11, 1928, she was the daughter of the late Isadore P. Oppleman and Zelda Totz Oppleman. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by a grandson, Jacob Ryan Feinman.

Maxine was never boring. She was always outspoken. A gracious hostess who loved entertaining, she was happiest with a full table and a home filled with family and friends. She never met a stranger. Her husband, Edward and she shared an expansive gregariousness and love of life.

As a member of the greatest generation of mothers, with four active children, she drove carpools, did her part to support Floyd Ward and Cotillion, city league football and baseball, piano and ballet; she drove carpools, she prepared four school lunches five days a week and family dinners each night, and she drove carpools, all while actively volunteering in the community. (Estimated carpool mileage: 543,864 miles)
