Maxine Marie, the daughter of Albert and Hattie (Osborne) Stier, was born April 10, 1926 in Spooner, Wisconsin. She attended Rhodes country schools, and also school in Collins and Baxter.

Maxine was married to John Garrett on March 12, 1955. She and John were talented cooks. They owned and operated John’s Place in Baxter and Kellogg when they lived there. In the 1960s, Maxine and John became foster parents to teenagers Mike and Tonya.

When Maxine and John retired, they bought a fifth wheel camper and traveled the country. In 2000, they sold the camper and retired to Iowa once more living in Laurel and then Kellogg. Maxine enjoyed crocheting, quilting, making dolls, traveling, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.

Maxine was preceded in death by her parents; an infant son; her first husband, Freddie Buchanan; her second husband, John Garrett; five brothers; seven sisters; and her half brother, Billy Osborne.

Maxine is survived by her nieces and nephews, and many friends.
