On August 22, 1943, Maxine married Carl Bohmont, and their union was blessed with three children. Maxine proudly embraced her role as a homemaker and gave herself entirely to her vocation. She was an excellent cook and baker and was devoted to her family and loved ones. Her life was enriched when she and Carl were blessed with grandchildren and great grandchildren and they much enjoyed taking road trips and spending time with them in their homes. Family was truly the focal point in Maxine's life. Many of Maxine's most cherished memories took place over the holidays, which were adorned with delicious food, good laughs, card playing and the sheer joy of being with those she loved.
