    I loved Maxine! We bowled on the Cartoonists league together for at least 20 years, and even after her team “retired”, a group of us would get together for lunch once a month at the Stagecoach Inn. She was always so happy, and such a giving person. I have a clear picture in my head of her at our last luncheon. I will treasure it. she will be missed!

    I was just out of high school when I started working at Reclamation in 1973. I so enjoyed Maxine. Down to earth, fun loving, and an encourager. I enjoyed visiting with her again at the Reclamation retiree luncheons. She was such a vital person who kept on going. God bless you, her family, and give you comfort.
