Elaine K. Maxson, 95, of Kerrville, TX was welcomed home by her heavenly Father Sunday, October 13,2019.

Elaine was born to Samuel Kieschnick and Frieda (Moerbe) Kieschnick December 9,1923 in Bishop, Texas. Her earliest times were spent growing up in "the Valley" of Texas. Many happy youthful summers were also spent in Thorndale, Texas. Elaine met the love of her life at a church sponsored supper and within the year, united in matrimony with that love, Leo Maxson, Jr., March 18th, 1943 at St. Paul Lutheran Church, Harlingen, Texas. They remained devoted to each other for 51 years, until Leo's passing in 1994. Elaine took great pride in the travel opportunities afforded her family by Leo's lifelong Air Force service. Her inquisitive nature reveled in learning from diverse locations and cultures. Together she and Leo raised a family and supported their community no matter where they landed. She had a very competitive nature in which she displayed through her love of bowling, card games and a well played game of Scrabble. Eventually the Maxson's settled in Kerrville. Throughout these years in Kerrville, Elaine was very active with her Holy Cross Lutheran Church family and in supporting her daughter Lynn's involvement with the Special Opportunity Center and Special Olympics. All whose lives she touched were enriched by her non-judgmental enduring love, joyful spirit and to the end her sharp wit.
Elaine was preceded to the Father by her parents; love, Leo; daughter, Lynn; one sister, two brothers, two sisters in law, and countless friends. She is survived by daughter, Candace Amsrud (Kerrville); son, Robert Maxson (Kerrville); grandson's Todd Amsrud (Wendy) Wausau, WI and Chad Amsrud (Mandy) Austin, TX; 3 great grandson's, and one great grandson. and one great great granddaughter.

Special thanks to the exceptionally caring hands of the Peterson Hospice team, your support of Elaine and her family were immeasurable, and to the loving staff at Brookdale (Sterling House) where we felt at home. Elaine's family will be forever grateful to you all for the loving care.
"Thank you Momma for all your love, see you in a bit."
