Maxine was born February 17, 1918 in Augusta, Kansas. She was the younger of two daughters born to Milton S. and Elizabeth M. (Wilson) Deibert. She grew up in Augusta and graduated from Augusta High School with the Class of 1935.
Maxine was united in marriage to Dellmar J. Burrows on July 20, 1936 in Little River, Kansas. From 1936 until 1943, Maxine followed her husband with his line of work in the oil fields and heavy construction. One particular year they moved thirteen times. They became the parents of two children, one son James Milton and one daughter Jane Maureen. In August of 1943, they moved to Paola where they made their home until moving to rural Lane, Kansas in 1964.
As a homemaker, Maxine was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. She enjoyed her family, especially her grandchildren.
