Maxine Lindsey Ross Schrader

Maxine was born to Robert and Pearl Lindsey, September 30, 1930 in Seattle, Washington and went to be with the Lord on February 4, 2010.  She grew up in the Montlake area and graduated from Garfield High School.  Maxine met and married Charles Marion Ross and they were married for 13 years.  Together they had two children.

As a single mother of two, Maxine was determined to provide her children with a stable, loving home and good education.  Though there were no extras while working as an executive secretary at Excavator’s Inc., she managed to send them to a private Christian school their junior and senior high school years.  She always put her children above all else.

She met Charles (Chuck) Schrader and they were married in 1973.  Along with Chuck came four children to add to her family.  Maxine was a dedicated wife and mother to all six children.  She and Chuck were married for over 36 wonderful years.  They lived in the Seattle area and then moved to Eugene, Oregon, where they lived for seven years.  She and Chuck enjoyed the outdoors, camping and bass fishing.  They returned to the Seattle area in 1983 and lived in Shoreline.  Upon retirement, they moved to Maltby in 1988 and then to GreenAcres Senior Park in Bothell in 2001.

Maxine enjoyed studying the bible, cooking, playing Scrabble and spending time with her family.  Her thirst for knowledge, amazing memory and quick wit was with her for her entire life.

Maxine dearly loved her family and treasured them all.  She is survived by her two children, Carol Ross, Charles “Chuck” Ross (Darcy), four step-children, Susan Roberts (John), Patricia French (Ian), Karen Miller (James), Eric Schrader (Lisa), two grandchildren, ten step-grandchildren, two step-great-grandchildren, her brother Kenneth Lindsey (Sharon), and sister in-law Jacquelin Uhrhammer.

She was laid to rest at Evergreen Cemetery in Seattle.  A memorial service and celebration of Maxine’s life will be held at the GreenAcres Senior Park Clubhouse, 23825 15th Ave., SE, Bothell, WA. 98021 on Friday, February 12th at 3:00pm.
