Maxine Grove

Tallahassee - On the morning of September 4th, 2018 the heavenly choir of angels gained another Alto; Maxine Irwin Grove of Tallahassee.

Born in Winter Park, FL on July 30, 1926, Maxine was raised in the Methodist Church. Her father and grandfather were Methodist ministers and she reported that she was in church "whenever the doors were opened". In 1946, Edwin Grove of Max Meadows, VA & she were married in Brunswick, GA. They lived in Max Meadows, VA, Wytheville, VA, Orlo Vista, FL, Palatka, FL, Albany, GA, Atlanta, GA and Largo, FL. Edwin passed away in 2000 and Maxine moved to Tallahassee in 2003. She is survived by two sons; Bill (Linda) Grove of Tallahassee and Ron (Denise) Grove of Sharpsburg, GA; Four grandchildren, twelve great grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren. A devoted Christian whose personal goal was to reflect Christ's love through her daily actions, Maxine was an active member of the Lake Jackson United Methodist Church. She adored her church family. She sang in the choir, did volunteer bookkeeping, and assisted with the Food Pantry and the Annual Yard Sale. She also taught Sunday School, assisted with Vacation Bible School and visited folks who were unable to attend services with her great friend Sue West of Havana. Upon receiving the sad news of her passing, several relatives specifically recalled the scripture, "Well done, good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of the Lord." A Memorial Service for Maxine will be held at the Lake Jackson United Methodist Church on Sunday, September 16th at 3 PM. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Lake Jackson United Methodist Church, 4423 North Monroe Street, Tallahassee, FL 32303 noting "In Memory of Maxine Grove".
