Lauder, Maxine (nee Elliott)

Maxine Alberta (Elliott) Lauder passed away peacefully on Thursday, Jan. 7, 2010, in Fort Macleod Extendicare at the age of 84 years. Maxine was born in Melfort, Sask. on April 18, 1925. She moved to Fort Macleod in 1930 with her family. She then married Ronald Dawson Lauder (deceased) on July 17, 1944.
Maxine was a life member of the Royal Purple until illness prevented her from participating. She was known for her precision in everything that she did, one being her beautiful handwriting. Maxine was very good at knitting and her baking was very precise and always tasted so yummy. Our favourites were her chocolate chip cookies, gingerbread cookies, fruit cake, apple crisp and porridge. There was no one who could make these quite the same as Grandma and heaven knows we’ve all tried! Mom was a great cook and nothing pleased her more than to have her family together for a meal.
Her greatest joy was her children, grandchildren and her great grandchildren. While her health was still good she would show up with cupcakes for school activities, or be seen at basketball games and swimming lessons with the grandchildren. You could also find her playing checkers or bingo with the great grandchildren.
Maxine and Ron enjoyed camping and hiking in both Waterton and Kalispell with their family and friends. Her other passion was golfing in the morning where she enjoyed the quiet scenery of the Macleod Golf Course. Maxine is survived by her sister Audrey Elliot of Fort Macleod; her son Murray (Debbie) Lauder of Pincher Creek and their children Colleen (Craig) Hann and their children Jaeger, Kaylee, Bowen Hann, Aaron (Tammy) Lauder, Heather Lauder and Harley Lauder; son Larry (Dawn) Lauder of Fort Macleod and their children Brad (Traci) Davis and their daughter Kythe Davis, Sandy (Aaron) Bassett and their children Samantha, Lisa and Adam Bassett, Lindy (Chad) Hornberger, Marie (Allen) Balmer and their children Brody and Avery Balmer; daughter Donna (Wilf) Peddy of Beaumont and their son Kyle Peddy.
Maxine will be sadly missed by her family and friends. There is however comfort in knowing that she is up in heaven right now with the love of her life her husband Ron and she is at peace.
