Obituary for Maxine Marie Rice

Maxine Marie Rice, age 82, passed away peacefully June 1st, 2019 due to natural causes. She was born March 12th, 1937 in Geddes, South Dakota to Lloyd and Marie Peters.
They moved to her grandparent’s farm in Yamhill, Oregon in 1938. Then moved to McMinnville in 1941, where she attended McMinnville schools and graduated from McMinnville High School in 1954. She met the love of her life through his sister. Then on that special day, she would marry Wilbur Eugene Rice on September 10th, 1955 in a beautiful double wedding.
She loved to love on people. Whether it was volunteering at the hospital visiting patients, hosting a women’s bible study, or teaching art classes to the elderly. Even with all of this, she always found time the ones in need.
To Maxine, family was everything. Raising her three beautiful children was her pride and joy. She loved making home cooked meals and couldn’t wait for the holidays because that meant a holiday feast to cook. She loved to spoil all her grandchildren whenever possible.
Her faith in God helped her through the toughest of times. Especially when she lost her daughter, Lori. She would use her faith as an example for others to follow. She would remember this bible verse for strength: Isaiah 40, Verse 31 “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
Maxine is survived by her brother and sister-in-law Marvin and Sharon Peters, husband Wilbur Eugene Rice, her two sons Steven and Gregory Rice, daughter-in-law Diane Rice, grandchildren Stacey Rice, Justin Rice, Kylee Rice, Kayla Countryman, Brooke Grimes-Rice, great grandchild Avery Rice and her many nephews and nieces. All of these she loved and touched deeply.
She was predeceased by her daughter Loraine Rice, sister Virginia Fjelland, father Lloyd Peters and mother Marie Peters.
Please join us celebrating her life Tuesday June 11th at 11:00am at Macy & Son. A private interment was held at Evergreen Memorial Park Cemetery.
