On September 7, 1947, she married Donald Edward Dill. Don and Maxileen enjoyed 71 years of marriage before he passed away in the Spring. After they married, they moved to Nashville and began a family. After Donna was born, Maxileen became a stay at home mother, focusing on caring for her husband and guiding her children through every stage of life. Don and Maxileen both loved to cook and were the head chefs of the family gatherings. She loved to paint, had a green thumb and always had a craft ready for her visiting grandchildren. She was an active member of her church and a regular volunteer at school and the library, when the children were young. After the children were grown, Maxileen enjoyed playing bridge with her friends and was an integral participant in the “50 Year Club”, which arranged all of their high school reunions.
