Just learned of Maxines passing. I've kept in touch with her since leaving the Kremmling area in 1990. She was a great friend/mom and co worker at the Kremmling Hospital. As a young nurse she taught me a lot about patient care even though she was only an aid she was the best. Her philosophy on life was a hoot. We shared many laughs. She will be remembered fondly.

I will miss Maxine very much. Enjoyed going to the Moose Cafe every Tuesday to have coffee with Maxine and LaVerne. I will remember Maxine as being very independent, stubborn and very enjoyable to be around. Take care, Dar

We always seemed to laugh a lot. Well, except for the "Extreme Jeep Ride" to celebrate your 80th birthday! I remember screams. Michael was driving and we were sitting in the back seat. We screamed. At least until we made it back to safety. Then we laughed, and you said you would like to do it again! Good-bye Maxine. I will miss you!
