Maxine Ann Long of Ames died Wednesday August 31 at Green Hills Retirement Center in Ames.

Maxine was born September 28, 1928 in Ames, Iowa to Dominic and Margaret (Jennett) Malliet. She grew up on the family farm near Kelley. Maxine graduated from Kelley High School in 1946. She worked and retired from the University Book Store as a buyer of ISU clothing and gifts. Mom will be remembered by those that knew and loved her for her compassion for her family both immediate and extended.

She enjoyed many things: hosting family dinners (as she was a very good cook), grandchildren, the Cubs, anything Cyclones, shopping and collecting many different things, Tom's dog, and desserts. Not necessarily in that order.

Maxine is survived by her children; Tom (Nancy) of Gilbert, Mike (Becky) of Ankeny, Patti (Mike) of Cypress CA and Gary (Deb) of Ames, sister; Marie Hogan of Bartlesville, OK, sister in laws; June Malliet of Des Moines, Joan Mattingly of Boone and Lois Long of California, 6 grandchildren, 7 great-grandchildren, and 6 great-great-grandchildren, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Maxine is preceded in death by her husband; William "Bill" Long, her parents; Dominic and Margaret Malliet, her brother Richard and brother in law Norm Long.

Memorial Contributions may be directed towards the family.
