Maxie was born on February 18, 1939 in Iredell, Tx to Ralph and Sallie Tidwell where they lived until they moved to Dumas when she was young. Maxie had lived most of her 81 years in Moore County, with the last 54 in Sunray. Maxie enjoyed growing flowers and plants of many varieties with a fondness for different species of cacti. She truly had a green thumb! She germinated many plants and trees that are flourishing in different states that will leave a lasting legacy. She also made numerous clothes for the grandchildren in their younger years along with quilts while operating her loom to make the cloth used. To those that knew Maxie she will always be remembered for her generous smile and easy going nature with never a unkind word to say.
