Obituary for Maxine Harris

Maxine Harris, age 93, of Clinton passed away on June 29 after an extended illness.

Maxine was born in Clinton, Illinois to Edmund and Carol (Duffner) Obermeyer on January 27, 1926. She was the widow of Stanley D. Harris, who preceded her in death only 10 days ago on June 19. Maxine is survived by her son Brian (Lisa) of Medford Lakes, New Jersey and three grandchildren, Nicholas, Lauren and Luke Harris, all of St. Louis, Missouri. She also leaves behind her brother, James Obermeyer of Clinton. Brother Bob Obermeyer and sister Esto Burger preceded her in death.

Maxine entered the United States Cadet Nurses Corps in 1944. She was one of the 100,000 young woman who became World War II Cadet Nurses. The Cadet Program was formed by an act of Congress to address understaffed civilian hospitals when older nurses were called to military service.

Maxine graduated as a registered nurse from St. Joseph’s School of Nursing in Bloomington, IL in 1947. That same year, a night nurse was needed at John Warner Hospital and Maxine agreed to stay for two weeks. Thirty eight years later, Maxine retired from that same hospital.

Maxine was a member of the First Christian Church, a founding member of C.O.R.N. (Clinton Old Retired Nurses) and a member of St. Joseph’s Alumni Association.

Graveside services will be held Saturday, July 6 at 11:00 a.m. at Memorial Park Cemetery, Clinton, IL with J. Kent Hickerson officiating. There will be no visitation. Calvert Funeral, Clinton, IL, is in charge of arrangements.

Per Maxine’s wishes, in lieu of flowers, please direct any memorials to: The Shriners Hospital for Children 4400 Clayton Ave. St. Louis, MO 63110
