Military Rites for a Cousin

Maxine D. Herrold Petri's funeral was held today at the Zabka Mortuary in Seward with Military Honors at the Cemetery. Maxine had a military career during WW II with the WAC's. She and Lee were divorced soon after the war; there were no children and Maxine never remarried. She lived in California where she spent many years caring for her mother who lived to 102. Her mother, Elsie, was Elaine's Dad's sister. Some time ago, Maxine asked Elaine to take care of the local arrangements for her final resting place here in the Seward Cemetery with her parents. Maxine had a "Caretaker" in California who worked with Elaine and Zabka's Funeral Home on all the details. The funeral was attended by her Grand Nephew and his daughter from Lincoln, a cousin (once removed)and his wife, the daughter of Lee, Maxine's former spouse, Elaine & I. Rev. Griger conducted a very appropriate service and the Military Honors made the occasion commendable.
