Maxine was a member of Gates of Joy Church of God in Christ. Maxine was a giver and a doer. If you ever knew or had been around Maxine, you knew she was a talker, and it was never a dull moment. Later in life if something was not right, she would say, “Wait a minute now, “and we would laugh because she was right. To know her was to love her and she will be missed.
