    Maxine, was introduced to me ( by Rosalind McElroy, as her play mama in the 1980’s) when I first visit the Compton Hight Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses. She was so Beautiful, hugging Rosalind she kissed me and said welcome to Jehovah’s house of worship.
    Please except my deepest sympathy.

    Maxine was always smiling. She made a room light up. She made us welcome in her home. She often spoke about her children when we visited. She opened up her home for Bible study at one time and I enjoyed her company. Roz took me to see Maxine before the COvid-19
    restrictions last year. She was always proud of Benny’s accomplishments. We went to the same Kingdom Hall until she moved. Thank you for making this site available Benny. Roz was always close o Maxine.
    Please accept my sincere condolences.
