Maxine was born in Monroe County, Ohio on October 23, 1923, a daughter to Carlton B. & Elizabeth (Boettner) Clegg.
She graduated from Jackson Milton High School in 1941 and throughout her working career, held several different positions. Most notably was secretary and organist for Corinth Assembly of God, later becoming Rock of Grace, Kinsman, Ohio. In addition, she had worked the assembly line for Packard Electric, and was a classroom aide at Corinth Christian Academy.
Her faith in God was central in her life and she faithfully served in her churches, beginning with Corinth Assembly and now Victory Christian Center as part of the deacon, ushering and greeting teams. Likewise, she participated in the Women's Ministry of Corinth Assembly of God, Sunday School Teacher, as well as the PTA of Mathews Schools. What she enjoyed above all else was spending time with her dear family and friends, and playing our favorite board game of aggravation. In her spare time, she enjoyed crafting, sewing, and painting, a recent ribbon winner at the Boardman YMCA, and a participant at the 2017 Canfield Fair. She was known as an excellent pie maker, often hosting and serving home-cooked meals to those she loved.
