She was a graduate of Athens High School and attended Concord State Teachers College. On August 17, 1944 she became the bride of Charles Robert (Bob) Munsey. With the exception of a short stint in Radford, Virginia, at the conclusion of World War II, they moved around the country in service with the Navy…  living in Massachusetts, Virginia, Tennessee, California, Texas, New York, Maryland, Rhode Island, and finally Florida. They located to Titusville, Florida, in a work/retirement mode in 1967.

During those 59 years of marriage they had a son and daughter. Maxine was a stay-at-home wife and mother who was dedicated to raising and supporting her family…many times while Bob was overseas. In retirement she found much sense of accomplishment in oil painting. She also enjoyed fishing.
