Obituary for Eva Maxine Horton

Eva Maxine Young was the youngest of 10 children, born May 10, 1935 in Anadarko, Oklahoma to parents Leon and Allie Young. She attended Pioneer School in Norge, Okla. She passed from this earth on June 20, 2017.

Maxine was preceded in death by: Her husband Harold Dean Horton on March 4, 2017. Her parents Leon and Allie Young, one brother and seven sisters.
She is survived by: One sister, Judy Coleman of Arkansas, her three daughters Rhonda, Regena, Rebecca and their families.
As a child she remembered her parents working hard, never missing a church service, being poor but never going to bed hungry and always under a roof of Jesus loving and God fearing parents with a willingness to make sacrifices with a family focus. She spoke of doing homework by a kerosene lantern and going to an ‘out house’ on cold nights and yet still feeling blessed.
Maxine married Harold Dean Horton, September 14, 1963. The couple raised three daughters: Rhonda, Regena (Patrick Jack) and Rebecca. Their three daughters blessed them with grandchildren: Louis Krivanek (Lacey), Jacob Krivanek, Shane Garner (Christi), Brandon Cornett, Matthew Jack (Keysha), and Heather (Curtis Ray). Great grandchildren: Logan and Liam Krivanek, Milly Krivanek, Steffen Bales, Brayden and Shaylee Garner, DaniPearl, Annalee and Tucker Ray, Kennedy Jack and Trenton Cornett; as well as several more loved ones from extended family, including, nieces and nephews Maxine held dearly in her heart.
Maxine and Harold grew up in strict church families where working hard, serving God and doing for others was taught. Harold worked for many years in auto motor related businesses before they managed the Mustang Texaco station in the late 60s, and then started their own business, Horton Motors. They never actually retired. After selling Horton Motors, they invested in rental properties. Maxine grew up in Chickasha, OK and was a member of the Chickasha Assembly of God church. She accepted the responsibilities of being a young mother. Maxine with Harold lived a life of serving our Lord (Meme’s famous cookies, meals to those in need, Holiday candy, mission work with Teen Challenge, etc.) and helping others.
When they were younger and healthier, they hosted and attended many family get-to-gathers, played cards, games, shared laughs, enjoyed food feasts and fellowship. It was common for them to dress up as Santa and Ms Claus and fun Halloween costumes. Some of her fondest memories were of her grandsons dressing up with their cousins, singing in front of their personal jukebox, dancing, and entertaining them and riding go-carts for hours upon hours.
Maxine is a long time member of Assembly of God church (The Bridge) in Mustang, Ok.
The family wishes to express their deep appreciation to Willowood Assisted Living in Mustang, OK for their loving care. They also thank Physicians Choice Hospice for keeping her comfortable as she prepared to leave this life. A special thank you to pastor Ken Isom for all the prayers and gospel songs he sang to mom. The joy for our Lord that Ken carries in his heart and soul lifted mom up at a very difficult time.
Funeral services will be 10am Monday, June 26, 2017 in the Chapel of The Good Shepherd at McNeil’s Funeral Service with interment at Mustang Cemetery, Mustang, OK.
