Maxine E. Kirkpatrick White Maxine was born in Pendleton, OR, on June 13, 1917. She died in Kennewick, WA, on March 4, 2010. She was 92 years old. She was the daughter of Earl and Gladys Kirkpatrick and had one brother, Donald. She was raised on a farm near Pendleton and helped feed harvest crews. She married Floyd Farrell in 1940 and had three children. She married John White in 1952 in Idaho. They then moved to the Tri-Cities area and had two children. The whole family of seven briefly lived in West Richland, Seattle, Sunnyside, and Burbank, before settling in Kennewick in 1964. The most important thing to Maxine was taking care of her family and she loved the frequent family gatherings. She was a member of the Tillicum Grange in Pendleton for more than 75 years. She was a lifelong Seattle Mariners fan and also enjoyed hunting, fishing, bowling, bingo, and collecting baseball cards. She spent her life making us happy and we loved her so much.

We would like to thank the staff of Kennewick General Hospital for their kind and gentle care. Graveside Services will be held on Friday, March 12, at 2:00 PM at the Olney Cemetery in Pendleton, OR.

John On behalf of my family, we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to you and yours. You have been a good friend to my Dad Bob Barott for many years and I know he would be there for you if he could. May the Lord give you comfort and peace at this difficult time.

Dear Uncle John and family, We've lost a dear lady, great baseball fan, and, by my memories, #1 keno player. I have to admit I never quite knew what that game was, but I did know she enjoyed it. And at the end of whatever story she was telling about one of her/your excursions, there was always that laugh. She will be missed. Love to you all, Kathy
