She worked for Morgan's as a waitress for many years. Maxine enjoyed many things; gardening, the outdoors, her family, and her dog Zip. She also enjoyed watching television, being close to her family, and Maxine was always happy. She loved her visits from her family, especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Maxine also treasured her trips around the Midwest with her sister, Nadine. The greatest attribute Maxine had was her ability to stretch the dollar. This was because of the era in which she grew up. Maxine still has great compassion for her family, friends, and just about anyone she meets. Maxine passed away May 14, 2011 at the Chariton Nursing & Rehab Center. She was preceded in death by her husband, Harry, son Robert, grandson, Bruce Jennings; and brothers: Charles "Buster" and Daryl Jones.
