VIENNA, Ohio – Maxine (Clegg) Martin, formerly of Vienna, Ohio and a current resident of Countryside at the Elmwood Assisted Living, Hubbard, Ohio, was ushered into the presence of her Lord and Savior at 2:25 a.m. on Sunday, September 17, 2017, following an extended illness. She was 93.
Maxine was born in Monroe County, Ohio on October 23, 1923, a daughter to Carlton B. and Elizabeth (Boettner) Clegg.
She graduated from Jackson-Milton High School in 1941.
Throughout her working career, she held several different positions. Most notably was secretary and organist for Corinth Assembly of God, later becoming Rock of Grace, Kinsman, Ohio. In addition, she had worked the assembly line for Packard Electric and was a classroom aide at Corinth Christian Academy.
Her faith in God was central in her life and she faithfully served in her churches, beginning with Corinth Assembly and now Victory Christian Center as part of the deacon, ushering and greeting teams. Likewise, she participated in the Women’s Ministry of Corinth Assembly of God, was a Sunday School Teacher as well as the PTA of Mathews Schools.
What she enjoyed above all else was spending time with her dear family and friends and playing our favorite board game of Aggravation. In her spare time, she enjoyed crafting, sewing and painting, a recent ribbon winner at the Boardman YMCA and a participant at the 2017 Canfield Fair. She was known as an excellent pie maker, often hosting and serving home-cooked meals to those she loved.
Survivors include her son, James E. Martin, Fowler, Ohio; her daughters, Janet E. Clark (Carl), Rootstown, Ohio and Dianne R. Mackey (Tod), Vienna, Ohio; her six grandchildren, Doug Broadway (Susan), Jamie Hamrick (Brian), Kristin Gorse (Tom), Tod Justin “TJ” Mackey, Stephen Mackey and Jordan Mackey; her eight great-grandchildren, Gary Broadway, Lindsey Broadway, Jacob Broadway, Ian Broadway, Christopher Hamrick, Abby Hamrick, Jacob Hamrick and Joshua Hamrick; her four great-great-grandchildren, Nathan, Kaydence, Mia and Alex as well as her in-laws, Marl “Bud” Martin (Helen) and Virginia Mounier.
She was preceded in death by her sweetheart and husband of 73 years, Earl Martin, whom she eloped to marry on October 30, 1940, whom later passed away on her 90th birthday on October 23, 2013 and by her brothers, Forrest, Woodrow, James and Wayne Clegg.
