Please share a memory of Maxine to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.


Maxine G. Merrill, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and community member, peacefully passed away on February 12, 2024, at Countryside Lakes Assisted Living Center in Port Orange, Florida. Her loving husband, Charles R. Merrill, and her daughter, Tawndra R. Haynes, preceded her in death. She was born and raised in Stonington, Maine, and Flemming, New York. Maxine married Charles in 1951 and raised their three children in East Millinocket, ME. She dedicated her spare time to volunteering, particularly with special needs children, showcasing her compassionate and nurturing nature.

Upon retirement in 1985, Maxine and Charles relocated to Deland, Florida, where they relished in leisurely days boating on the St. John River. Later, in 2002, Maxine settled in Daytona Beach Shores, where she actively engaged in community life. She enthusiastically served on the social committee at her condominium, enjoyed traveling, and maintained an active lifestyle by exercising with her friends at the Shores Community Center.

Maxine is survived by her daughter, Shellie Jo Merrill of Port Orange, FL., her son, Charles N. Merrill and his wife, Kathy of Hermon, ME.; four grandchildren: Melissa, Charlie, Neal, and Daniel; five great-grandchildren, Samuel, Hannah, Benjamin, Amelia, and Maxwell. 

The family extends their heartfelt gratitude to the Countryside Assisted Living Center staff for their unwavering care and compassion during Maxine's time there. Maxine will be remembered fondly for her kindness, generosity, and vibrant spirit. She leaves behind cherished memories that will forever live in the hearts of those who knew and loved her. May she rest in peace.
