A graduate of Connellsville High School, Lois was a former Springfield Township tax collector and was retired from Seven Springs Resort. She was a member of Jennerstown United Methodist Church, the Red Hats, Farm Women, and Somerset O.E.S. Lodge.
Maxine was blessed with a true servant's heart and loved to love people. She served many churches along with her husband, providing children's ministry with the well-known puppet George. She cared for others by sharing homemade sweet treats and comforting food. Her kitchen often smelled of homemade bread, pies, and candies. She was often found with a goodie bag of snacks and candies for the children and adults alike. She had a beautiful way to offer her blessing to others while sharing her Christian faith.
She loved reading, singing, playing the piano/organ, doing crossword puzzles, traveling abroad, and showering her family with love. She always made holidays special and kept God at the center. Most of all, she loved her family and strived to instill her Christian values in all of them. Maxine was loved by many and will be greatly missed.
