Virginia Maxine Harold Holt, 93, of Mound City died on Monday, May 29, 2017. Maxine was born June 6, 1923, in Fontana, Kan., to Loring (Lode) and Sylvia Harold.

Maxine graduated from La Cygne High School.

She was united in marriage to Herschel Holt on Sept. 10, 1941. Maxine and Herschel lived on the Holt family farm where they raised their three children.

Maxine ran the Holt Café in Mound City for four years during the 1950s. After selling the restaurant in 1961, she went to work for the ASCS Office in Mound City in 1962 and retired from there in 1988.

However, aside from her careers, Maxine was mostly a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Maxine was a wonderful homemaker and “a good cooker” according to one of the great-grandkids.

During her retirement, Maxine spent her time traveling, doing volunteer work for Meals on Wheels, the American Legion Auxiliary and the American Cancer Society. She was a longtime member of the Mound City Christian Church and also attended Wall Street Christian Church.

Maxine was preceded in death by her husband Herschel; her parents; sister Joan; her three brothers, Bryan, Loring and Leslie; her favorite son-in-law, Ottis Allen; and twin granddaughters, Tara and Kara.

Survivors include one daughter, Minnie Lou Holt Allen; two sons and their wives, Larry Eldon and Linda Kay Holt, and Billy Bruce and Meg Holt; five grandchildren, Kirk, Kris, Kreg, Adam and Mandy; and 15 great-grandchildren.
