Maxine was such a nice lady. We visited her several times over the years when we brought our mother in town to visit her. Mom ( Doris Cretcher Glick) was an old school friend of Maxine’s. Doris is living in a nursing home now in Hillsboro, OH and will celebrate her 96th birthday later this month. She has a photo of her and Maxine on her “memories board” in her room.
While driving through Urbana today we stopped to visit Maxine, and was told of her passing.
Although it was a couple of years ago, we would still like to offer our condolences to her family. She was such a nice person. We are sorry for your loss.
I hope this message reaches you.
