Maxine Suttle
October 16, 1927 - December 28, 2018

Maxine Suttle, 91, passed away Friday morning, December 28, after a brief illness. In lieu of a funeral service there will be a family visitation at Lunn’s Funeral Colonial Home from 2-4, this Sunday afternoon.

Maxine was born at Poolville, Texas to Homer and Mabel Smith Hash. The Hash and Smith families were pioneer families in that region with Homer owning and operating the Hash Service Station, a well-known all-night fuel and eating place between Ft. Worth and Wichita Falls in the 30’s. During the war the family moved into Arlington where Maxine attended high school while her dad worked in an aircraft plant. The family moved to the South Plains during Maxine’s senior year where she graduated from Crosbyton High School and eventually met her husband, Howard Suttle, a marriage that lasted 66 years until his death in 2012. She excelled in the role of wife, mother and homemaker and “Grammy”.

Most of her married years were spent in Amarillo because of Howard’s work. After their only son left home they lived in many other places with his work and after retirement such as Midland, TX, and Raton, NM where the two made many lasting friendships.

Preceding her in death were her parents, one sister, Joyce Martin of Amarillo, TX. and Bob Hash of Raton, NM. Maxine is survived by her one son, Larry Suttle and wife, Nicki; Grandson, Marc and wife Caitlin of McKinney, TX.; Granddaughter, Mandi Jo Jackson and husband Jacob of Conroe, TX.; Grandchildren, Camryn Danford, Abigail, Rebecca, and Joseph Jackson.

Maxine was a longtime member of the church of Christ, most recently of the Tenth and Broad church of Christ.
