Maxine Guthrie, longtime Wainwright resident was born September 13, 1933 in Woodward, Oklahoma. She was the daughter of Alva and Flora (McDaniel) Goodwin. She passed from this life on November 26, 2019 at her home. She was 86.

Mom raised 8 children, earned her master’s degree in education, reaching the level of Magna Cumme Laude graduating with a 4.0. She taught countless children as a third-grade teacher, cooked the best fried chicken you’ve ever had, listened to the Gaither gospel revival for hours at a time and loved like no other. Chicken was not the only thing she cooked well; she could make a good meal out of nothing. She made hundreds of donuts, rolls and made the prettiest cakes. She liked to can, always preserving food from the garden and hundreds of jars of jelly and jams.

Mom made the prettiest clothes without a pattern and could look at anything crocheted and duplicate it. She was a gardener, a writer and an artist. Mom was an avid reader she continually expanded her knowledge by reading books of all kinds.

She could do anything that she put her mind to; plumbing, electrical, sheet rocking, upholstery, she could even start a car with a bobby pin. She really was a super woman.

Survivors include her children, Carrolyn Hogan of Garland, TX, Julie & Keith Barnett of Poteau, Michael & Penny Guthrie of Wainwright, Twila & David Hollis of Oktaha, Retha & Monty Mitchell of Muskogee, Shelby & Michael Morgan of Morris, Stacey & Steve Morgan of Haskell, and Mitchell & Celeste Guthrie of Wainwright; 19 grandchildren Heather (Tate) Harrison, Jennifer (Garrett) Miller, Crystal (Ed) Kirkland, Stephanie (Evan) Gallant, Ashley Guthrie, Kaci Guthrie, Chad (Taylor) Guthrie, Aaron (Kassidy) Hollis, Megan (Jake) Lester, Amber (John) Gaston. Levi (Jessie) Morgan, Samuel Morgan, Steven (Lucy) Morgan, Suzanne (Eric) Evans, Sandra (Jesse) Thomason, Montana, Daphney, Hunter and Talon Guthrie; 38 great grandchildren, Parker, Carson, Landon, Garrett, Makaela, Jordan, Logan, Connor, Makell, Kensly, Holston, William, Madison, Jaryn, Michael, Jaxon, Abel, Rhilyn, Sean, Lucas, Ryan, Ashley, Allie, Anna, Addie, Katie, Lennie, Jackson, Sadie, Ruby, Audrie, Remi, Sage, Colt, Henry, Leo, Ethan, Isaac and baby boy Thomason; three sisters, Wanda Reed and husband Jim, Bertha Reed and husband, Bob, Rilla White and husband, Don, and one brother Lloyd Goodwin and wife, Lynn.

Maxine was preceded in death by her husband Virgil F. Guthrie Jr., parents Alva & Flora Goodwin, and brother Harold Goodwin, son-in-law Carl Hogan and grandson Scott Morgan.

Funeral services will be 10:00 a.m. Monday December 2, 2019 at Oasis Community Church with Rev. Garry Guthrie and Steve Morgan officiating. Interment will follow at Greenhill Cemetery under the direction of Lescher-Millsap Funeral Home. Viewing will be on Sunday from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm at the funeral home.

I forget how old I was, maybe 10 or 11, it was one of the many summer days I spend at my Aunt and Uncles house playing with Stacey and Mitchell, we were in the pasture behind the barn in what I guess was an old wooden cattle trailer. There was a bunch of wood bees hanging around but we didn't mind, but I guess the bees got mad at us running through the gates and all the carrying on that we done. One decided to zap me right between the eyes and the race was on to Aunt Maxine. She first calmed me down then went and got a bit of chewing tobacco and put it on the sting, got me a cold towel and had me lay down while the swelling went down in my eyes. I was in the best hands. She knew just what to do, caring and loving, then asked if we were going back out with bees to play. I have many more, but this time comes to my mind every time I think of Aunt Maxine. Love her!

I taught with Maxine for several years at Oktaha Elementary. She was so kind, and helpful. She was the experienced teacher guiding the inexperienced teacher. I loved working with her! My prayers are with her family. Dorothy Sykora
