Maxine Pine passed away at Indian River Nursing and Rehabilitation Center on Saturday, Feb. 9, 2008.
Maxine was born on March 28, 1930 in Bethel, Vt., the daughter of Winfield and Elizabeth (Maynard) Hackett.
Maxine was the governess for Senator Muskie’s children. She resided in Maine for most of her life and loved it there. After the children were grown, she worked at an Antique Tool and Machinery Museum in Augusta, Maine. All those who knew Maxine appreciated her wonderful and zany sense of humor.
Maxine is the widow of Fred Pine. She is survived by two brothers: William Hackett and his wife Bulah of Florida and Fred Hackett of Granville and a sister Ruth Wolcott of Granville. Also, Maxine had many other relatives from Granville, Bethel, Vt., and Massachusetts.
In keeping with her wishes, Maxine will be cremated and there will be a graveside service in the spring at Cherry Hill Cemetery in Bethel, Vt.
Arrangements are under the direction of the Robert M. King Funeral Home, 23 Church St. Granville, NY.
