She also had a special love for her great grandson, Wilson. She loved her family and kept in touch regularly with nieces, nephews and cousins. Maxine loved her church, her family and her friends, many of them for 50 or 60 years. Maxine retired as a CPCU from the insurance business in 1991. She enjoyed working and was active in the Insurance Women's Organization. She was a supporter of Samford University through service as a Life Member and officer in the Samford Legacy League. Maxine enjoyed music, gardening, art (painting) and reading before her eyes failed. She was a devoted member of Deerfoot Baptist Church, singing in the choir, working in Vacation Bible School, serving in the WMU and teaching Sunday School. She had many devoted friends there. Although we will all miss her, we know Maxine is where she has wanted to be for some time - safe and at home.
