S. Maxine Moore

January 27, 1931 ‒ February 14, 2016

Delaware, Ohio

Maxine Moore, age 85 of Delaware passed away Sunday, February 14, 2016 at Arbors of Delaware.

Born on January 27, 1931 in Antrim, Ohio she was a daughter of the late Howard and Elsie (Gray) Woodburn. She would meet a farming neighbor John Moore; they were married in 1951 and shared 57 wonderful years. Together they farmed, raised their family, and enjoyed opportunities that life brought to them.  Sadly John passed away in 2008.

As one who lived by example, she also possessed an easy going nature.  She along with her husband worked at Mom Wilson’s and she milked her own small dairy herd.  With a passion for gardening and quilting, she also authored poetry and enjoyed reading.

Maxine was a collector of recipes and anything else.  Always frugal, it was expressed that she could pinch a penny until it squealed. First and foremost she will be remembered for her endearing smile and never a harsh word spoken.  Vacations were always special as she considered half the fun was in planning them. A woman of faith she was a member of Community Baptist Church. She also treasured family dinners and gatherings as she took much pride in the successes of her children and grandchildren whom remain as her living legacy.

She is survived by daughter Patti (Larry) Rogers of Marion, sons Gene (Sally) Moore of Piedmont Lake, David (Margi) Moore of Florence, SC, grandchildren Chris (Jenny) Rogers, Kelly (Shane) Crissinger, Trey Moore (Caeley Miller), great-grandsons Clay, Casey, Mitch, step-great grandchildren Hannah and Emily, sisters Betty Lou Caton, and Sandra Wear.
