Condolences for Maxine Marie Straka
Maxine was a regular at my job and I would see her almost every day of the week. I remember us looking forward to seeing her because she was always the nicest person no matter what was happening in her life. She also wouldn’t miss an opportunity to compliment you on her way out. She made our day every time she came around and it’s sad to hear about the news. I hope her family is doing well and keeps her memory alive.
On behalf of the staff of Bennett Martin Public Library, we are sorry to hear of Maxine’s passing. Maxine was one of our most cheerful patrons and loved to talk with our staff on a daily basis. She will be missed.
I am so sorry to learn this sad news. Maxine was such a sweet lady and I loved seeing her in the library every day. Wishing peace to her family who she loved so very much.
