Maxine Herbert Obituary

Maxine Herbert, 84, North Manchester, Indiana, passed away on November 14, 2022, at Peabody Healthcare Center in North Manchester. Born in Manchester, Kentucky, on August 29, 1938, Maxine was the daughter of the late Thomas Proffitt and Nollie (Minton) Harris.

Maxine graduated from Bush High School in London, Kentucky, in 1956 at a time when not many women were able to do so. She was one of the first in her family to graduate from high school and had a deep passion for lifelong learning. Maxine loved to read, which gave her insight into many different topics. She worked hard for everything she had, and her employment included jobs in food service at Wabash County Hospital for many years as well as in housekeeping at Timbercrest. Maxine also loved to volunteer and spent over ten years giving her time to the Thrift Shop in North Manchester. When her health allowed, she attended the First Brethren Church in North Manchester.

On January 13, 1996, Maxine married Logan A. Herbert. The two were wed for twenty-three years before Logan passed away on November 29, 2019. Maxine had an eye for style and enjoyed shopping for clothing and shoes. She also delighted in the beauty of flowers and the peace they brought her. Maxine had a real talent for cooking and always wanted to feed anyone and everyone. Cooking was one of the ways she showed her love.

The loving memory of Maxine Herbert will be forever cherished by her son, David Fisher, North Manchester; daughters, Dianna “Joy” (Dan) Hoffman, North Manchester, Regina (Dave) Kilty, Kokomo, and Janice Houlihan, Wabash; one sister; five grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren. Maxine was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Jackie Minton; one sister; and son-in-law, Mark Houlihan.

A private graveside will be held at a later date.
