Maxine Raffelock Davine passed away on September 29, 2020. Maxine was born in Denver, Colorado, an only child to Esse and David Raffelock. Maxine spent her life in Denver except for time she spent pursuing acting through Chicago’s Goodman Theatre and off-Broadway in New York. Maxine married Fred Davine in 1955, and he preceded her in death in October 2019. Maxine was devoted to her family, a true example of strength, empathy, and selflessness.
She leaves three children: Jeff ( Shannon) Davine, Bruce (Audrey) Davine, and Valerie Davine Bills, five grandchildren; Taylor Davine, Sara (Asher) Roston, Sam (Kayla) Bills, Max Bills, and Isaac Bills, and two great-grandchildren; Lily and Freddie, all of whom hope to follow in her example and will be forever grateful to have her as their mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, and to have her model for them how to be in the world.
