Max was born Oct. 30, 1913 at Kellerton, Iowa, to Gilbert and Edna S. WEBB.

On Dec. 28, 1938, he was united in marriage to Thelma COKER and to this union was born a daughter, Karen Lee.

Max spent his adult life farming near Mount Ayr, Iowa.

He accepted the Lord while a teenager and was a loving witness to his family and friends until his death. He and his family were active at Wishard Chapel until his health failed.

Max was preceded in death by his parents, Gilbert and Edna WEBB; two sisters, Violet WILLIAMS and Pauline HENRY; and a brother, Gerald.

Survivors include his wife, Thelma, now of Creston, Iowa; daughter, Karen TIENSON and grandson, Joshua, of Deerfield Ill.; two brothers, Lynn of Modesto, Calif., and Bill of Adel, Iowa; three sisters, Imogene BLAUER and Barbara YAEGER of Modesto, and Ardith MILLER of Loomis, Calif.; numereous other family members and a host of friends.

Services were held at Wilson-Watson Funeral Home in Mount Ayr, Iowa, on Saturday, August 9, 1986, conducted by Pastor Gary GONNERMAN. Music was provided by Mildred SMITH, Mary TRULLINGER and Melanie TRULLIGER.

Casketbearers were Sam WEBB, Harold WEBB, Rex JACKSON, Howard COKER, Weldon BARKER and Lyle GILLILAND. Burial was in Maple Row Cemetery at Kellerton, Iowa.

From One in HEAVEN
I would not have you grieve for me today
Nor weep beside my vacant chair.
Could you but know my daily protion here
You would not, could not, wish me there.
I know now why He said, "Ear hath not heard."
I have no words, no alphabet.
Or even if I had, I dare not tell
Because you could not bear it yet.
So, only this - I am the same, though changed,
Like Him! A joy more rich and strong
Than I had dreamed that any heart could hold,
And all my life is one glad song.
Sometimes when you are talking to our Lord
He turns and speaks to me, dear heart,
In that rare moment you and I are just
The distance of a word apart!
So, my loved one, do not grieve for me
Around the family board today;
Instead, rejoice for we are one in Him,
And so, I am not very far away.
