My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
I had Mrs. Romney as an instructor and loved her classes.
She brought so much to each class.
She gave so much passion and caring to all her students.
My brother and I was in the same class and she would always say we were her boys.
Truly a loving and caring lady!
Rest peaceful!

Maxine had a smile that could light up a room I have always said that Maxine was the most intelligent person that I had ever known. She was blessed to have a daughter and son who loved and adored her as she did them. She will live on through them. God bless the family. Maxine, you will be missed.
