Maxine M. Queen Plough
March 17, 1933 ‒ May 05, 2015
Mount Gilead, Ohio
MOUNT GILEAD: Maxine Queen Plough now has a better grasp on “how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ” (Eph. 3:18) and knows the full measure of God’s love for her as she went home to be with the Lord Tuesday, May 5, 2015 from Country Meadow Care Center, near Bellville. She was 82.
Born Maxine Marcea Fisher March 17, 1933 to parents Vern & Helen (Hofer) Fisher in Ashland County, Maxine graduated from Bellville High School with the class of 1951.
She was a woman of strong faith who believed in prayer. This was evident as she was a prayer warrior for her family. Maxine was a long time member of Clear Fork Alliance Church in Bellville, where she was a member of the choir for many years. She was also a member of the Morrow County Hospital Rose Twig. One pastime that she also enjoyed was knitting, having given each of her grandchildren an afghan she made especially for them.
Being the motherly figure she was, she enjoyed taking care of her family and her Australian Shepherd Buddy. One way she did this was by being a gardener who canned and froze the fruits of her labor. She canned everything from peaches to pears to applesauce. She enjoyed cooking, her apple dumplings were simply the best, however her char burnt steaks proved that none of us are perfect.
She is survived by her sons Larry (Elizabeth) Queen of Mt. Gilead, Brian (Ida) Queen of Mt. Gilead and Wayne (Teresa) Queen of Mansfield; step-daughters Gwen (John) Johnson of Portland, Oregon, Greta (Will) Anderson of Lockwood, CA and Glee Plough of Kent; grandchildren Sheleby and Sarah Queen, Alexandria (Chris) Beetham, Nicholas (Holly) Queen, Lori (Mike) Vanderpool, Lillian (Steve) Jones, Susan (Ben) Ocheltree, Stephanie (Ben) Keller, Scott, Nathan, Brandon and Julie Queen and Katie (Barry) Phillips; sixteen great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.
In addition to her first husband Kenneth Queen and second husband Arlo Plough, she was preceded in death by her parents, her brother Wayne Fisher and sister Mildred Mumper.
Her Family will receive friends Friday, May 8, 2015 from 1-3 pm at Clear Fork Alliance Church (1008 State Route 97 Bellville) where a worship service, giving glory to God for the life of Maxine will be held at 3 pm with Pastor Mike Stine officiating. Burial will follow in Shauck Cemetery.
Contributions in her memory to Clear Fork Alliance Church may be made at the funeral.
