Osgood, Maxine Agle
Jan. 18, 1916 - Mar. 24, 2013
Maxine Agle Osgood, 97, of York, Maine and Sarasota, Florida died on March 24, 2013. Born in Belmont, New Hampshire she grew up and lived many years in New Hampshire (Belmont, Salem, Plymouth) and York, Maine and began winter living in Sarasota, Florida in 1974.
She attended the University of New Hampshire and the Pillsbury School of Nursing in Concord, New Hampshire where she earned her Licensed Practical Nurse Degree.
Over the years, while raising a family, she worked as a nurse at the New Hampton School for Boys, The Sceva Spear Memorial Hospital in Plymouth, NH and at the Plymouth Harbor Retirement Community in Sarasota, Florida.
After she had raised her family and retired, she completed the training requirements and participated in the State of Florida Guardian Ad Litem Program. This allowed her to represent the best interest of abused and neglected children in judicial court proceedings.
Her other major interest was health care related as she was a trained participant in the State of Florida Long -Term Care Ombudman's Program. She was an advocate for people living in nursing homes and assisted care facilities.
She had a life-long interest and love for horses which included owning and raising several horses throughout her life. She was also an avid dog lover having dogs all her life. Her current dog Missy already greatly misses her.
She is preceded in death by her husband Dr. Jonathan Osgood, her three siblings, Duff, Phyllis, and Lois, daughter-in-law Helen and grandson Timothy.
She is survived by her three children, Allen, David, and Jonine; daughter-in-law Carol Osgood; four grandchildren (Allen Jr., Jonathan, David Jr., and Christina); and eight great-grandchildren (Adrian, Allen, Morlan, Paige, Cole, Evan, Sebastian, and Isabel). She was an amazing mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who loved to be involved with all of the kids activities and would tirelessly be in the kitchen making their favorite meals and treats.
She was loved by all who knew her and will be deeply missed. There will be no services. A private family burial will occur this summer in New Hampshire.
