MAXINE E. POINSATTE, 89, passed to eternal life on Monday, Aug. 25, 2014. Married to the late James A. Poinsatte for 66 years, her proudest vocation was that of motherhood.

Contributing to the World War II war effort on the home front, Maxine worked in the finance department at International Harvester. Maxine worked alongside her husband at Tri City Automotive Warehouse. She specialized in accounting and computer programming.
