Phyllis Maxine Quesinberry, 93, of Chillicothe, died 2:10 p.m. Tuesday, June 8, 2021 at her residence unexpectedly.
Maxine was born November 19, 1927, in Pike County, to the late J. Jennings and Lucille DeLong Anderson. She married Candy J. Quesinberry, who died in 1956.
Surviving are a daughter and son-in-law, Cindy Quesinberry and David Grimes, of Chillicothe; grandchildren, Brandy (Shannon Seyfang) Quesinberry, Brooks Quesinberry, Max Green, Lova Green, Aaron (Robyn) Grimes and Chris (Mandi) Grimes; 11 great-grandchildren; brothers, Anthony (Cheryl) Anderson, of Grove City, and Ron (Linda) Anderson, of Waverly; several nieces and nephews; and a special friend, Trula Wilson, of Chillicothe. She was predeceased by a son, Randall Ray Quesinberry; brothers, Marvin, Leo, and Dale Anderson; a sister, Kathleen Ingham, and a special friend, Jean Rinehart.
Maxine retired from the former Taylors IGA where she had worked for 50 years. She worked in the public for many years, she was quite popular with her customers. When asked if you were related to Maxine, due to an unusual shared last name, her customers and friends would always light up and recount their interactions. Their comments always led to the same conclusion of knowing the sweetest and kindest person who often made their day. In her spare time, she bowled in women’s leagues for many years with great friends she would continue relationships with for decades. While at home, she enjoyed a good book or puzzle, watching her beloved Ohio State Buckeyes, play football and always made time to watch PGA golf tournaments. One of her favorite spots at home was her kitchen bar, where her dear friends would gather to gossip and catch up with cups of coffee in hand.
She will be sorely missed!
