In 1957, she married John T. Day, Jr. They had three children. In 1975, they moved from Shreveport, Louisiana to Greenville, Texas. She owned Ardis Heights Grocery from 1978-1999. She was proud to have the biggest and best Texas burger in town. To the day she passed, she still had customers talking about how they missed her Texas burger. After closing the store she worked another 10 years for the Hunt County Clerk’s Office before retiring.

She was also a member of Citizens On Patrol in Greenville. She enjoyed driving the car in the Christmas and 4th of July parades. She loved all the friends she made and was very proud to be a member of this organization.

After retirement, she enjoyed spending time with her great-grandchildren, family and friends. She also loved playing computer games with her sisters, watching her birds outside of her window and reading her newspapers in the morning and her Bible every night. Before her health failed, she would participate in monthly retirement luncheons.

Maxine had many names she went by-granny, mama Day, Macky, Sis and Mother. No matter what we called her, we will all dearly miss her.
