Maxine Waldron Howell

Maxine Waldron Howell, age 84, of Fort Worth, TX died peacefully Thursday morning, July 28, 2016 surrounded by her children and grandchildren. Mass of Christian Burial was held Monday, August 1 at St. Andrew Catholic Church with interment at the Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery. Her memory may be honored with a gift to St. Andrew's Food Pantry Outreach.

Maxine Waldron was born November 3, 1931 in Waukon to James and Amanda Bodendorfer Waldron. She married Milo Howell February 26, 1952 and they moved to Fort Worth, TX in 1959.

Maxine and Milo were longtime members of St. Andrew Catholic Church. Maxine sang in the choir, and was a eucharistic minister and nursing home minister. She was happiest when feeding people at her table and she carried that ministry on with many years of service at the St. Andrew's food pantry. Anyone who met Maxine was instantly touched by her honest, straightforward, loving nature.

She was preceded in death by the love of her life, Milo; and her son-in-law, P.J. Brown. Survivors include her children: Pattie Watson, Debbie Brown, Kelly (Starlene) Howell and Beth Howell; nine grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; and her sisters, Marie Sullivan and Jeanne Roggensack.

Thompson's Harveson & Cole Funeral Home and Crematory of Fort Worth, TX assisted the family with arrangements.
