Maxine Florence Gaffney

March 21, 1926 — February 21, 2012

Maxine Florence Gaffney passed away at her home on February 21, 2012. She was born on March 21, 1926 in Faulkton, South Dakota to Florence Moad. Maxine married John Gaffney on April 7, 1947 In Orient, South Dakota. They were blessed with three children and the family lived in several South Dakota and Montana cities before settling in Bozeman. Maxine worked at the Faulk County Court House and at Soconey Oil Co. in South Dakota. Her love for children led her to be the school secretary at Holy Rosary School and Longfellow School where she worked for 20 years. Maxine loved dancing, reading, playing cards, bowling and walking. In her youth she danced to Count Basie. She volunteered at the Museum of the Rockies and Mountain View Care Center. She was a board member at the Bozeman Senior Center and loved working at Second Hand Rose. Maxine was a long standing member of Resurrection Parrish. Survivors include daughters, Kathy Mundy (Jerry), Laurie Gaffney and son, Dan Gaffney (Gale). Her grandsons are Kyle Gaffney of Boston, Austin Gaffney of Bozeman, Matt Mundy (Bridget) of St. Paul. She adored her two great granddaughters, Fiona and Honora Mundy. She was preceded in death by her husband, Bud; mother, Florence; brother, Keith Moad and grandson, Kevin Mundy. At Maxine’s request, there will be no funeral service, however, all are welcome to a Celebration Open House at Aspen Pointe on Monday, February 27, 2012 from 1:30-3:00 p.m. to remember her. Maxine loved the community at Aspen Pointe and Birchwood where she lived for 4 years. The staff and residents were special to her. In Maxine’s words, “They are so good to me here, this is where I belong.” The last weeks were made much easier because of the loving, gentle care extended by the staff from Hospice of Southwest Montana. Memorials may be made in Maxine’s name to Hospice of Southwest Montana (1600 Ellis St. #3A, Bozeman, MT 59715), Resurrection Parish, or any organizations of choice.
