Milo – Maxine S. Kole, 90, passed away February 1, 2022, at her daughter Joi’s home in Sebec. She was born January 30, 1932, in Milo, the daughter of Elmer E. and Eva Frances (Harris) Stanchfield. Maxine shared a special bond with her sister, Patricia Stanchfield, who recently passed away January 30th on Maxine’s 90th birthday. The dynamic duo shared a lifetime of memories while living together the past 20 years. They were virtually inseparable, even in their deaths timing just 48 hours apart.
Maxine is survived by her four children, Curt Kole and his wife, Libby, Tommy Kole and his wife, Oxana, Kelli Kole and her fiancé, Brooks, and Joi Stevens and her husband, Chuck; five grandchildren, Casey, Callie, Jennifer, Kole, and Klay; five great-grandchildren, Brooklyn, Jonathan, Emerson, Lucy, and Aria; two brothers, Glenn Stanchfield and his wife, Rena, and Elmer “Jack” Stanchfield and his wife, Jannie; and nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband, Tom Kole; grandson, Robert Kole; and her sister and best friend, Patricia Stanchfield.
The family wishes to thank Beacon Hospice Services and nurses, Pam and Bretannie. A deep heartfelt hug is extended to Amanda, fondly called Oh-bam-a by Maxine, for being much more than a caregiver; she is a friend who gave unsurpassed support to not only Maxine, but also to Joi and her family.
Burial will be in the family lot in Evergreen Cemetery, Milo, in the spring. Arrangements are in the care of the Lary Funeral Home. Messages of condolence and memories may be expressed at.www.laryfuneralhome.com.
