Maxine Wilken

August 21, 1929 — May 7, 2020

Mounds View

Maxine Mae Wilken, age 90 of Mounds View, passed away on May 7, 2020. Maxine was preceded in death by her husband of 48 years, Florian J. Wilken; great-granddaughter, Olivia Grace; parents, Irene and Karl Driste; and brother, Gerald. Maxine is survived by children, Caryn, Crescenthia (Steve), Elizabeth (Tony), Jeffrey (Deborah), and Anna (Kevin); grandchildren, Anna Marie, Kathleen, Brandon, Katherine, Eli, Brynna, Miles; great-grandchildren, Lola and Logan; siblings, Jack, James (Judy), MaryJo; and sister-in-law, Pat. Maxine was born in Minneapolis. At age 19 she met and married her best friend, Florian, and began a new chapter of her life on a farm in Millerville, MN. The dozen years spent on the farm were a source of lasting memories. Later, they built a cabin on nearby Lake Aaron where they had many friends who held a special place in her heart. Maxine was a bookkeeper at Snyders Drug and had a natural aptitude for numbers. She also had an artistic nature that was expressed in her sewing and paintings. She loved breakfasts with her siblings, who meant so much to her. Maxine had many dear friends at her home in Mounds View and at the St Tim's Women's Council. She was fun and had a welcoming smile. We will miss you Mom. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date.
