March 12, 1931 - February 27, 2017

Maxine Marion Drew was born March 12, 1931 to Erbie and Theresa Lee at Saint Francis Hospital in Peoria Heights, Illinois. She had four sisters and one brother all of whom preceded her in death. Maxine grew up in the restaurant business; her father owned and operated several restaurants throughout Illinois.

She married John Drew and together they had four sons, Gary, Terry, Mark, and Jeff. They moved to San Diego, California where John worked as an architect and Maxine raised the four boys. Once the boys were older she worked at Hatches Hallmark Cards and Gifts from where she eventually retired. In 2012 she moved from La Mesa, Calif. to Aspens on the Creek Mobile Home Park in Medford, Oregon, where she became an active community member and a dear, sweet friend to so many.

Maxine was a wonderful mother, friend, and an inspiration to all who knew her. She is survived by her four sons and their wives, seven grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.

A celebration of life will be held for Maxine from 2:00 - 5:00 p.m. Sunday, April 9, 2017 at the Aspens on the Creek community center.
