Maxine was one of the brightest spirits you’d ever have the pleasure of meeting. She was the epitome of “good people” and always wore her heart on her sleeve. She would feed anybody if they were hungry or help anyone with anything they ever needed. Maxine was never afraid to fight for what is right. Her head strong attitude earned her accolades such as “Mad Max!” from her closest friends. She was better known as “Grandma CoCo” to her beloved grandchildren and “Moma Maxine” to all her other children throughout her walk of life.
Maxine worked as a Treasurer for the Okmulgee County district court house for 14 years before retiring on May 5, 2019. Her work was perfect for her as a people person. She was able to touch many souls and form so many beautiful relationships. With so many folks.
