As a young girl, Maxine was known for her keen intelligence, her strong work ethic and her ability to write poetry. She enjoyed several vocations including teaching head start in Lowndes County and being a successful realtor in Montgomery County. Reading the Bible and leading the choir at Bethel Methodist and later singing in the choir at Eastern Hills Baptist Church were precious to her. As hobbies she read cookbooks, cooked and grew flowers. She dearly loved her family and friends and was always willing to help people in need. One of the poems she wrote and practiced was "Be Someone's Angel Today".

We were amazed and grateful for the kindness and care shown to her during her illness at Capstone Village in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Thank you to all of her family and friends that blessed her during her lifetime.
