May 25, 1921 to April 17, 2018 - Chapter Two of Maxine's life began on April 17, 2018, when her tired heart finally gave out.

Maxine WeeceChapter One of a truly extraordinary

life began on May

25, 1921, when Maxine was

born to Edgar Jasper Fuller

and Ida Alma Fuller (Garrett)

in Smith Center, Kansas, the

second eldest of four children.

Maxine grew up near Franklin,

Nebraska, until the family left

the "Dust Bowl" behind in 1937

and moved to Oregon.

Maxine met Ernest Weece at a

ballroom dance, and married a smitten Ernest August 1,

1941. The happy family grew and thrived, adding their

children, Janice and Randy.

Maxine and Ernest owned and operated Weece's Market

for 27 years. Following Ernest's passing in 1984,

Maxine devoted countless hours volunteering at Snow-

Cap Community Charities and her church. She also took

great delight in serving her children, grandchildren and

great-grandchildren in myriad ways.

Maxine loved cooking, knitting, sewing, canning

fruits and vegetables, walking, writing special occasion

poems and playing Scrabble. Until suffering a stroke after

her 90th birthday, Maxine remained very active.

Chapter Two of Maxine's life began on April 17,

2018, when her tired heart finally gave out. At that exact

moment, Maxine embraced a new life with a new body

for all eternity, in the presence of loved ones who went

before her and her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Maxine was preceded in death by her parents, her loving

husband Ernest, sister Ilene Denbo, brother Vinton

Fuller, brothers-in-law George Finck, Leonard Denbo

and Chuck Shaffer, and sister-in-law Jean Fuller.

She is survived by her sister Sherry Shaffer, of St. Helens,

Oregon; her daughter Jan Marleau (Jim), of Dallas,

Oregon; son Randy Weece (Susan), of Schaumburg, Illinois;

her wonderful grandchildren, David Marleau (Rebecca),

of Fairview, Oregon, Douglas Marleau (Tracy),

of Happy Valley, Oregon, Dean Marleau (Christine), of

Damascus, Oregon, Angela Weece, of Gurnee, Illinois,

Reggie Weece (Emily), of Northbrook, Illinois; and

great-grandchildren, Peyton, Malina, Colton, Kendall

and Nicole Marleau, and Ella, Ruby and Simon Weece.

She is also survived by many nieces and nephews,

whom she dearly loved.

A service celebrating Maxine's life was held Wednesday,

April 25. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that

donations be made to SnowCap Community Charities

or the American Cancer Society.
