Burial and graveside services will be at 1:00pm, Saturday, October 17, 2020 at the Mackville Cemetery in Atwood, Illinois.
Maxine was born on January 25, 1931, in Atwood, Illinois, to Ted and Olive (Neal) Jay. She married Charles “Bus” Selle on October 23, 1948. He preceded her in death on November 16, 1997.
She is survived by two sons, Stephen (Debbie) Selle of Arvada, Colorado, and Brian (Sondra) Selle of Hannibal, Missouri, and one daughter, Ann (Jim) Blush of Eaton, Colorado; seven grandchildren, Matt (Jen) Selle, Brooke (Ted) Geraghty, Brandon (Amber) Selle, Clint (Adrienne) Selle, Rob (Lori) Blush, Justin (Leslie) Selle, and Jamie (Daniel) Lombardelli; eleven great-grandchildren, Caden Selle, Austin Lombardelli, Addison Blush, Danica Selle, Keira Selle, Brianna Blush, Sam Selle, Landon Selle, Brennan Selle, Declan Geraghty, and Harrison Selle.
She is also survived by a sister, Phyllis Stephenson, of Tuscola, Illinois and a brother, Art (Sonya) Jay, of Findlay, Illinois. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, and one sister, Marlene Stalter.
Maxine graduated from Atwood-Hammond High School in 1949. She was a longtime member of the Atwood Baptist Church where she was active in the choir, Women’s Guild, Bible Study, and provided special music.
She and her husband, Bus, farmed in the Ivesdale and Atwood areas for many years before their retirement. After her husband’s death, she moved to Greeley, Colorado, and became an active member and volunteer of the Greeley Assistance League where she enjoyed working at the Bargain Box for many years. She was a member of the Greeley Wesleyan Church (Generations Church) where she sang with the Senior Choir and was a longtime member of the Wednesday Women at One Bible Study.
Maxine spent many summer vacations camping with family in the mountains until 1975 when she and her husband built a vacation home near Buena Vista, Colorado. They enjoyed many summers there and also many winters at Lake Okeechobee, Florida, before Bus passed away. She enjoyed reading, playing the piano, singing, Bible study, painting, thrift stores and garage sales, bicycling, feeding and watching the birds, and trips to the mountains.

Max was such a special lady! I met here while volunteering at the Bargain Box together. She always had a smile for everyone and worked wherever she was needed. Max and I grew closer when we realized we shared a common faith and commitment to family. We prayed for each other and shared memories and good times together.
Because I have my grandchildren tomorrow, I will not be able to attend her service. Max lived a good life, may she Rest In Peace in Heaven with Bus and those she loved that have gone before her.
In sympathy and friendship,
Deb Bonkiewicz

It was such a joy and honor to know and minister to Maxine for the past many years. She was such a loving person. Any time I visited with her, she always had a smile for you and so pleasant to visit with. I will truly miss her.

To the family of Maxine Selle,

What a great person your Mother was. I so enjoyed my visits with her while she lived in the condo; especially our hair trimming sessions. Will miss her "sugar" cookies; she always saved me a few when she took them to the Box.

I enjoyed your Mother so much. We first met at the Bargin Box several years ago and was so lucky to have know her.
