In memory of
Jeanne Mary Hurley Maksym Ph.D.
MAKSYM JEANNE MARY HURLEY PhD Age 91 entered eternal life on February 11, 2017 surrounded by her children and beloved Yorkshire Terrier, Tippy. Dr. Maksym's life was devoted to three things: Her faith in the Catholic Church, her decades of inspirational instruction to hundreds of children, her student teachers and her family. Jeanne was a proud member of St. Ambrose Catholic Church where she regularly attended Mass. She never closed her eyes at night without saying the rosary and praying for those who needed help. Dr. Maksym was also an award-winning Kindergarten teacher for 58 years. Every child loved her and followed her to new heights and pathways to success. Scores of her students became the Valedictorians of their classes, but all embraced the magic of the written word and the power of imagination. Dr. Maksym is preceded in death by her husband, Anthony; her parents, Roy and Helen Hurley; and her siblings, Catherine, Jodie, Patricia, Joan and Edward. Jeanne is survived by her five children Helen Mary (Darryl) Hicks, Catherine (Paul) Townsend, Anne Marie (Al) McBrien, The Honorable John Maksym and Roy (Lynn) Maksym. Jeanne "Meme" is also survived by 20 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren, sisters Mary Meyer and Sharon(Norman) Cure and many nieces and nephews.
