Obituary: Maxine Leone Maynard Seely

10/22/34 ~ 2/27/03

MT. PLEASANT<! > : Our dear sweet wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother passed away on Feb. 27, 2003 in her home with her loved ones by her side.

She was born Oct. 22, 1934 to Theodore and Sarah Helen Maynard in South Jordan, UT. On June 7, 1952 she married Burt Seely and later solemnized on March 30, 1956 in the Salt Lake Temple. Maxine was an example to every one that knew her. She was faced with a physical trial, but she had courage beyond measure. She was a valiant servant of our Heavenly Father and Jesus whom she loved dearly. Her family was her life, she loved her husband, children and grandchildren where she found so much of her love and joy. She loved to hold them and kiss them and tell them I love you, I love you! She gave encouragement to everyone, she loved to help her husband on the farm where they worked together and raised their family of nine.

She is preceded in death by her loving son Dennis; her parents; four brothers; and one sister. She is survived by her husband Burt Seely; children, Steven (Gayle) Seely; Debra (Ralph) Levin; Ted (Tena) Seely; Todd (Connie) Seely; Donny (Karen) Seely; Linda (Brent) Taylor; Julie (Brent) Sorensen and Bonnie (Spencer) Swapp. WE LOVE YOU! You will be greatly missed, but we know that you are having a great and joyous reunion with those who went before you.
