A TRIBUTE TO MAXINE BANKS
Funeral services for Maxine Banks, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Sam Banks, were held at the Christian Church at Hiwasse on April 8th, 1936.
Brother Barrows, pastor of the church, was in charge. A beautiful song service was rendered by a quartet composed of Mr. and Mrs. F.M. Brock, Mrs. Verona Martin and Buell Spencer accompanied by Mrs. Florence Gladden.
The active pallbearers were Harold Banks, Duane Banks, John Cecil Rucker, Ked Riggins, Ray Morgan and Herbert Loghry, Honorary pallbearers consisted of the graduating class of the Hiwasse high school, of which Maxine was a member.
The young girls’ Sunday School class, of which Maxine was teacher, had charge of eth beautiful tributes.
She leaves to mourn her passing a devoted father and mother, one sister. Marjorie, and two brothers, Dale and Paul, besides a host of loving relatives and friends.
Maxine was ill only a few days and her death came as a great shock to everyone. She was greatly loved by young and old. Her thoughtfulness and kindness to older people was an outstanding characteristic, and her happy deposition and wonderful personality made her a leader with the younger group.
At a young and tender age Maxine confessed her faith in the Lord and gave her life into His keeping. She was an earnest and faithful worker in the church and Sunday School from which she will be sadly missed.
The school, the church and the community feel that they have suffered an irreparable loss in the passing of such a kind, gracious and lovable character.
