Maxine Hill
August 21, 1940 - May 27, 2015
Maxine Hill was born August 21, 1940, in Gooding, Idaho, and she passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 27, 2015. She is the fourth daughter of Lawrence and Helen Novis. Maxine loved growing up on her folks' dairy farm, helping with the birth of calves and other farm chores. She loved being active in 4-H, training her heifer for showing at the county fair.
In 1951, the family moved to Nampa, and Maxine attended Greenhurst County School, Nampa Jr. High, and graduated from Nampa High School in 1958. She then attended Link's (ITT) Business College, and upon graduating, went to work for the telephone company in Boise until they moved their accounting to Salt Lake City. Maxine worked as a bookkeeper in the automobile industry for many years retiring from Tom Scott Honda in July of 2006. In 1961, Maxine married George Hill. They were divorced in 1973.
Maxine enjoyed water skiing, bowling, and traveling with both the bowling team and her sister, Kathy. Maxine lived life to the fullest. She was always looking for a new adventure which included sky diving, bungee jumping, zip lining, and any ride at the county fair. She was the #1 fan of the Seattle Mariners and instilled this same enthusiasm in many family members. Though she had no children of her own, she had eleven nieces and nephews to whom she was a second mom. Maxine was preceded in death by her parents, Lawrence and Helen Novis, as well as her sister, Kathy Davlin. She is survived by two sisters, Laurene Burns, and Marlene Brownlee, as well as her numerous nieces and nephews.
