Our precious, Freda “Maxine” MacClure (nee Banks) - 79, of Lake Land Retreat- passed away peacefully on October 30, 2021. Maxine is survived by her husband Robert, daughters Kelly, and Jennifer (Rob) Harlow and her six grandsons; Morgan (Ian), Robert, Riley (Leea), Matthew (Emily), Gavin and Tait. Her Sisters, Myrna, Hazel, Glenna and Lorna.
We have learned incredible life lessons from Maxine about love, strength and determination. Maxine loved totally and fully and once she gave you her heart, she loved you forever. Every phone call or visit ended with "I love you". The love for her husband Robert and her children was in her eyes until the end. Maxine had strength beyond measure that would bolster those around her and bring peace to others. Even when the end was near she was at ease and had no fears of what was to come next. Her determination was immeasurable and a true testament to her family and faith, faith that was important to her throughout her life. Her absence will leave a void for those she has left behind but she will continue to live on in the memories and hearts of those that loved her the most.
Maxine is predeceased by her parents Arthur and Thelma (Hatfield) Banks, her brother Ronald and sister Doreen (Banks) Fraser.
Maxine was never one to be the centre of attention, so in that fashion her service will be private. Friends wishing to honour Maxine are invited to make a donation to; Greenfield United Baptist Church, Valley Hospice or charity of your choice
