MAXINE RUTH LOWE

Her family describes her as a loyal and faithful woman. She was known for cooking for families and friends during times of grievances; she was always willing to help. Maxine was a lover of the Lord and of flowers. She was a housewife who raised seven children and also cleaned a local church for several years before her passing.
