    Maxine Brewer Weber was born Jan. 22, 1926 to Len and Noma Brewer in Newton, Kan. She passed away at Family Health West in Fruita, Colo. on March 3, 2011, where she had resided since August 2009,

    Maxine moved to Fort Lupton, Colo. when she was just a month old. She graduated from high school there and met and married Bernard Weber in 1945. They lived in Washington and California while Bernard was in the Navy. After Bernard got out of the Navy, they moved back to Fort Lupton to work on the family farm.

    In 1950, Bernard went to work for an oil company, which took them all over Colorado and Wyoming. In 1957, they moved to Moab, where they put down roots until their daughter graduated high school in 1964. Maxine worked at Sprouse Reitz during this time. They moved to Gypsum and Silt, Colo., but returned to Moab to retire in 1981.

    Maxine liked playing cards and bingo. She loved working in her yard and taking care of her home. She loved her family and never stopped telling anyone who would listen everything about them. We will always remember her sense of humor and smile.

    She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers Lee, Mack, Benny, Jim; and sister, Darlene. She leaves behind her husband, Bernard, of Moab; daughter, Bev (Tom) Harris; grandsons, John (Louanna) Harris, Jim (Tammy) Harris; and great-grandchildren, Troy, Tanner, Tye, and Macee Harris, all of Gypsum, Colo. She also leaves behind numerous nieces and nephews and very special friends, whom she thought of as family, Lynda (Ted) Sorensen and daughters Cristie, Brenda, and Angle.

    There will be memorial service at a later date.
