On May 2, 1965, Maxine married Wayne Timm at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Springfield. The couple made their home in Morgan their entire married life. Maxine was a member of Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in Morgan and the Ladies’ Guild. She was employed as a cashier at Becker’s Super Valu for many years; Maxine then began working as a blackjack dealer at Jackpot Junction, a job she enjoyed until her retirement – 18-1/2 years later – in 2010. In her spare time, she also enjoyed gardening and camping with her family.
