Maxine was born to Mac and Jean Purdon on the family farm in Antler, SK and moved to Creelman, SK in 1947. In Creelman she attended high school, took piano lessons and met and married Lyle Chipley.In 1954 Maxine and Lyle moved to Estevan with their oldest two children. Maxine and Lyle were very active in the Estevan square dance and round dance community. She sadly lost Lyle in 1982 but never lost her love for him. She moved to Weyburn and married Daryl Muir in 1994 until his death in 2005.
Maxine’s loves were faith, family, friends, dancing and creating. Maxine was always an active member and volunteer at her church. She often talked of her church family and her faith. She loved to visit her family and travel with them as well. A walk on the beach in the morning and a nice swim in the evening always made her happy. She loved to be outside.Maxine had idle-less, creative hands that were always busy making items for her family. She was a very talented seamstress and sewed many clothes for her children as they grew up. She later made quilts and also knit for family; these items are treasured.
We will greatly miss her love of life, smile, laughter, care and compassion, and her willingness to do anything with us!
She found our dad’s hand again and they are dancing together at last.
