Maxine Naslund

September 11, 1928 — May 22, 2019

Leona Maxine Naslund (Gates) left this life on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 in Saint Louis, Missouri at the age of 90. She was born on September 11, 1928 in Knoxville, Illinois, the daughter of Orval A. and Mable Alice (Graff) Gates. Maxine was one of life’s gentle souls who always stood by her husband, Herb, through the good and the difficult. Together they raised five children, gardened, canned, fished, camped, danced, and prayed. She will be remembered for much goodness, perhaps topped only by her pies. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Herb Naslund; and one sister, Dalene Cramer. She is survived by her five children: Peggy (Mike) Nelson, Chuck (Jean) Naslund, Richard (Susan) Naslund, Brian (Gloria) Naslund, Sarah (Mark) Armstrong; eleven grandchildren; thirteen great-grandchildren; and one sister, Naomi Peterson. Visitation will be held on Saturday, June 1, 2019 from 10:00 A.M. to 11:00 A.M. at the Victoria United Methodist Church in Victoria, Illinois.
