Maxine (Betty) Vassar, 87, from Leavenworth, passed away Oct. 28, 2020, at Providence Medical Center. Maxine was born April 28, 1933, in Rock Springs, Ark., to parents Luther and Okla (Massey) Webb.

Maxine joined Jim Vassar, her husband of 63 years, who passed away, Oct. 6, 2020. Maxine was also preceded in death by her parents; her son, James S. Vassar; and siblings, Geraldine Gibson and Clyde Webb.

Maxine is survived by her daughters, Lene’ Whitworth (Ron) and Ramona Vassar Lindsay (Larry); grandchildren, Mandy (John), Jimi, Tami, Matt and Tony; great grandchildren, Abbie, Shayne, Marcus and Chandler; and many cousins, nieces and nephews.

Maxine had recently moved in June 2020 from Leavenworth, Kan., to an assisted living home in Kansas City, Kan. Before that, she lived on a farm with Jim near Easton, Kansas, for nearly 50 years.
