Maxine B. Hollingshead 96 of Harrison passed away peacefully on Thursday, December 6, 2018 at The Horizon Senior Living II, Clare, Michigan. Maxine was born August 25, 1922 in Clark Lake, Michigan, the daughter of Elmer and Madeline (Earley) Stevenson. Maxine was valedictorian of her senior class. After high school, she worked at Superior Duvaren Dairy Farms where she was a secretary. Later Maxine became the business manager of her and her husband’s septic tank manufacturing company in the 1950’s and 60’s, which was then moved to Harrison in 1958 from Jackson, Michigan. Maxine was married to Howard R. Hollingshead on April 26, 1946 in Jackson, Michigan. Mr. Hollingshead preceded Maxine in death on October 19, 2010 after sixty four years of marriage.
Maxine loved art and became very creative with her paints. Her depiction of black bears still remains on the side of their garage at her previous residence in the city of Harrison. Maxine also loved traveling and visiting many sites in Michigan with her husband Howard. She loved her flowers around her house, especially her snowball bush that was relocated when she moved. Mrs. Hollingshead’s favorite memory growing up was living in the country and playing with the family dogs; Sally and Pal. She also enjoyed walking to Clark Lake with her two brothers to swim. Her favorite place was anywhere that was outside.
Surviving are her two daughters; Sue McCleary of Harrison and Judy Visser also of Harrison, one son, Howard A. Hollingshead and wife Linda of Reese, Michigan, many grandchildren, numerous great-grandchildren, several great-great grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews and extended family members.

I'm So sorry for your loss. Aunt Maxine was and is loved. I have that of her over the years even though we haven't been close. Please take comfort that she is now with Uncle Howard, and all loved ones that have passed before her.

Again thank you for sharing your mom with us at Horizon. She was the sweetest, caring woman. Never in all the time she was here did I ever hear her complain or say a harsh word to anyone! We love her dearly and she will be missed!! God got a perfect angel when he decides to take Maxine home. God bless you all.

To my dear friends, I have such good memories of MOM , always smiling. She treated me like one of her kids and laughed at the stuff Barbie and I came up with. She’d say “Now girls!” Then she would laugh.remember many times when we snuck out of the Sharps market basement. Scared to death that we would get caught by Howard. Lovely family. May God bless you one and all. Hugs, sorry I can’t be there in person but I am in spirit.
