She was born on April 24, 1960 at the Landstuhl Army Base in Germany, the daughter of Lonnie Max and Carol Marlene (Eaton) Matthews.
Maxine worked at the Leonardville Nursing Home for 33 years, starting as a CNA, working her way up to activities director and then in social services. She enjoyed her dogs, making jewelry, collecting miniatures and smiley faces. She was a great friend and would lend a hand to anyone.

Marker and husband Scott of Junction City; three brothers, Lonnie Matthews and wife Marjorie of Phoenix, Arizona, Robert Matthews of Topeka and Billy Matthews and wife Debbie of Wichita; three sisters, Waneta Parshall of Wamego, Heather Bergstrom and husband Kevin of Wamego and Debbie McDonald and husband Tony of Riley; seven grandchildren, Alex, Bella, Colton, Michaela, Anthony, Blake and Ravin; two great grandchildren, Sarah and Dom and several nieces and nephews.

A graveside service will be held at 10:00 a.m. Saturday, July 18, 2020 at the Riley Cemetery. The family asks that you bring a lawn chair if you're more comfortable sitting rather than standing. The Anderes-Pfeifley Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.
