Jean Elizabeth Maxwell passed away peacefully in Guthrie, OK on October 4, 2019 at the age of 94.
Jean is survived by sisters, Irene Lee of Coventry, RI, and Barbara Carlson, North Kingstown, RI, and a brother, John Maxwell of Denton, TX. Also, her sons, Steven King and Joseph Verstynen, both of Wichita, KS, and daughters Jeanmarie Kelly of Gaston, SC, and Barbara Wells of Midwest City, OK, many grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
Jean was born on April 25, 1925 in Providence, RI to John Franklin Maxwell and Irene Messinger Maxwell (Tasker). After raising her family in Wichita, KS, she relocated to Washington and later Arizona. Upon retirement she moved back to Wichita, KS, then to Midwest City, OK, and finally to Guthrie, OK.
She worked a variety of jobs but she mostly enjoyed doing demonstrations in department stores. She was in her element demonstrating cookware since she enjoyed cooking and meeting new people. Outside of work she loved going dancing with friends, sewing, and making crafts. As she began to slow down she liked playing games, reading, doing crossword puzzles and shopping. But most of all she loved spending time with her family.
Viewing will be Thursday, October 10, 9:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M.
