Our dear Mother, Sister, Aunt Mocky, and our Grandma Maxine was taken home on the Lord’s day to be reunited with her family. Maxine was born in Richmond, CA. to William Samuel Crewse and Vera Burns Crewse and had lovely and happy childhood; spending time at the movies, crossing the bay to San Francisco, and spending time at Fisherman’s Wharf. She loved her life and her family in California.

She was spunky, funny, quirky, persnickety, and practical to a hilarious degree. She always gave freely of herself and her time unconditionally, and would only consider the best for her family and those she loved.

She loved to share stories with her family about the people and places she loved the most, and she will be greatly missed by all. She was a member of Christ Lutheran Church and School where she sang in the choir, and loved and trusted her Lord with all that was in her.

Maxine is survived by her Family- Judy and Dianna, Patti, Sam, Jamey and MarjaLee, and sister Linda. Grandchildren Chace and wife Alice, Fara, Coty, Brittney and husband Bryson, Angela and husband Silas, Serena and boyfriend Mark, Camden, Tucker, and great granddaughters Hazel Bee and Zoee.

She was preceded in death by her husband Bill, her son Billy, her brother Sam, and her parents.

The family would like to extend a special thanks to the IHC Hospice team; Doug, Dennis, and Andrew, who so lovingly took care of her, chatted with her, and comforted her in her final months.

There will be a private burial for immediate family members at Murray City Cemetery.

Oh my, where do I begin to describe my lovely Godmother? She was a second mother to me and her children were as brothers and sisters to me. I loved her with my whole heart! I love to imagine her in heaven getting my father and her husband in line. She was always there for me when my parents couldn’t be and I called on her at very important times in my life and she was there. I love you Maxine and I look forward to the day we meet again. God hold and comfort all those she has left behind. I am here for you should you ever need me.

I’m very saddened to hear about your loss, I absolutely adored her as a child, letting us call her by her first name was BIG deal back in the old days! Her picture is just a little sign of her spunk. My favorite thing was the licorice she always carried in her purse and to this day I always remember her when I buy it. My mom will be extremely saddened by this as she loved her dearly. Sorry this is so late in coming

I am truly saddened with the loss of Maxine. My first memory of her was at Thanksgiving when she welcomed me into her home. She was truly entertaining, hilarious and made me laugh every time I was around her. Her one-liners are something I will never forget, I still smile when I think of her. I haven't seen her in quite some time but I will certainly never forget her. Thanks for the many laughs we shared.

My condolences to the family. She will be truly missed but her memory will never go fade!!
