Maxine Irena Francovich, 85, passed away peacefully on August 30, 2013 at her home in Sparks, NV. She was preceded in death by her husband of 60 years Jac N. Francovich. Maxine lived a life of devotion and uncompromising honesty and directness.

Maxine's life was marked by her family's migration to California's central valley from Oklahoma in the 1930's. Second eldest of 11 children Maxine grew up as a mentor and model for her siblings. Her sense of humor, playful and sometimes outrageous wit, and fierce love of her family were passed on to her children and many friends.

Maxine married Jac in April of 1953 and lived the rest of her life primarily in the Reno/Tahoe area. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her. She is survived by her children, Nick Francovich, Chris Francovich and Rena Francovich Sullivan, her Grandchildren, Chelsea Sullivan Robinson, Marco Sullivan, Eli and Leo Francovich and Melissa Francovich, siblings Alan(Carol) Rearick, Craig (Lena) Rearick, Elaine (Jim) Jones, Carol (Jim) Jensen, Jean Fairweather and many nieces and nephews.

The Celebration of Life that was previously scheduled for Jac (who passed away on August 18th) at Vino Reno on September 7th has been cancelled. A Celebration of Life for both Jac and Maxine will now be held at their home at 1381 Breaker Way, Sparks, NV on Sunday, September 8th at 3:00 p.m. All friends and family are welcome.
