Maxine was a former member of First Baptist Church of Mammoth Spring for many years. She loved older people and visited them as well as the sick as often as she could; with all her farm chores. She was a great cook and she loved to take a delicious pie or cake along with her. She was sort of shy but she loved all her neighbors and her church family: but most of all—SHE LOVED JESUS!
