Maxine M. Corser

Maxine Marie Corser, of Gregory, MI, age 89, passed away on March 6, 2019. She was born on May 26, 1929 the daughter of Emery and Ethel "Louine" (Hopkins) Pickell. Maxine married Harold Elvin Corser on April 1, 1951 in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

Maxine was a devout Christian and lifelong member of the Unadilla Presbyterian Church. She served as a Deacon, an Elder, choir director, and took part in the Women's Missionary Group, bake sales, and taught Sunday school. Growing up, Maxine's family grew watermelon and sweet corn which they took to the Eastern Market in Detroit and sold. She worked for Rockwell and then Tuttle Spring in Chelsea. She also carried mail on weekends for several years. Maxine had a beautiful singing voice and sang in community and church choirs. She enjoyed going to yard sales and refinishing furniture.

She is survived by her children: Kim (Susan) Corser, of Brooklyn, Eric (Amy) Corser, of Stockbridge, Kyle (Gina Van Riper) Corser, of Gregory, and Wade Corser, of Gregory. Also surviving are her brother-in-law, Fredrick (Joan) Corser, of Monroe; six grandchildren, Chad, Cassie, Derek, Rachel, Alex, Clint; two step-grandchildren, Kelly and David Murray; two great-grandchildren, Oakley and Owen, and several nieces, nephews, and cousins. Preceding her in death is her husband, and two sisters, Beulah Landis and Donna Lee.

The family would like to express their appreciation of Tonya Lynn Corser. Tonya and Maxine's shared faith served them well for 3 1/2 years. Tonya's devotion, kindness, and loving care allowed Maxine to stay in her home, which was her wish, and pass away in peace.

A Memorial Service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 16, 2019 at the Unadilla Presbyterian Church. The family will receive friends at the church at 10:00 a.m. until time of service. Lunch will be provided following the service. Burial will take place at Unadilla Cemetery at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made to the Unadilla Presbyterian Church, 20175 Williamsville Rd., Gregory, MI 48137, or the Chelsea Senior Center Meals on Wheels, 512 E. Washington, Chelsea, MI 48118.
