Maxine was the sweetest, kindest, most intelligent person. We have known her since 1964 when we first moved to Patrick AFB . Even when dementia invaded her life she would always answer the phone with “HI Sandy, what’s up, followed by “Let me as Don. We will miss her dearly. Shelly and Sandy Coe

I was blessed to not only work with Maxine at the Chamber/s, but also to have her share her friendship with me like a brother, notwithstanding her being a Bulldog, and me being a Gator... she always sought me out for a Big Hug. They will be sorely missed. Rest in Peace, Max, Go Bulldogs.
