Condolences for Maxine Lucile Laschanzky
She will be greatly missed! Maxine was always a living soul and had a heart of gold. I always told her I hope I’m as beautiful and upbeat as she is at her age. Love and miss you always
Maxine was such a lovely woman, always smiling and laughing. She would drive by our house at least three times a week just to check on us. Maxine will be missed so much, not only by me but the whole family. We love you, RIP..sweet angel..
So sorry to hear about her passing. She was very special to us. She was not only our landlord but our friend. She treated our kids like her own grandkids and would often invite them over to play with her dogs. Even after we moved away she would send kind notes and we would try to stop by and see her. She will be missed.
This news makes my heart hurt. I loved Maxine. She was the best neighbor and friend anyone would be blessed to have. We spent many hours visiting with each other. She lived in a small house on the corner of the street, I was truly blessed when she moved across the street. We talked about our grief of our dear loved ones. There is only one blessing out of this. She will be reunited with the family and friends she missed so badly.
We knew Maxine was a special person from the first time we met her. She had a special way of making us feel as if we were part of her family. Her humor was contagious, RIP Maxine.
I grew up in the home right across the street from Maxine. She was always so friendly and welcoming. My brother and I locked ourselves out of our house after school on more then one occasion, sometimes with lots of snow outside. She would always invite us in her home until someone came home to let us in. In recent years my Daugther goes to west Lincoln elementary. So I have stopped by and visited with Maxine to see how she was doing. She was always very happy and inviting, she was always such a joy to be around.
We were so lucky and blessed to have know such a beautiful person. We were fortunate to have an amazing landlord and true friend in her. After we moved she would come visit when she was in our neighborhood and when she couldn’t stop she’d honk to let us know she was driving by. I will miss her infectious laugh and genuine smile. I can’t imagine that there wasn’t a person she encountered that she didn’t impact in an amazing way. We are sorry for your loss and she will be dearly missed. We love you Maxine!
