Mom


Maxine Marie Loats

A wife, a mother, a grandmother, a sister, a friend
From Lafayette to Minneapolis to Prairie Village
From Fairview Hospital to St. Joseph Hospital
From 1208 4th street to 6120 W 76th terrace
From St. John-Emmanuel to Westminster Presbyterian to Village Presbyterian

She was a dietician, a baker, an excellent cook
Christmas cookies, cherry pie, and gingerbread
Family dinners, birthday cakes, and turkey dinners

She was a Den mother, a Girl Scout leader, a PTA president
She was a good neighbor, a great friend, a loving sister

She loved flowers and gardening, cross-stitch and knitting
She loved taking pictures and her scrapbooks
She loved her Purdue Boiler Makers and her KU basketball
She loved Village Presbyterian, her bible study group, and knitting
Hats for the newborn babies at Children’s Mercy Hospital

She loved Hummel’s, Noah’s Ark, and Snow White
She loved her German heritage
She loved bridge group, Trailblazers, neighborhood get-togethers,
Family reunions and barbeques

She loved her life-mate, John, for 52 years
She loved her Bob, her Tom, her Kathy, and her Bill
She loved all her grandchildren
