I, wife, mother, daughter, sister, and aunt. To many grandma and great-grandma. I passed away peacefully on Thursday, October 19, 2023.

 

I was born in Tremonton, Utah on November 22, 1933 to Lewis M and Martha Elizabeth Smith Newbold. Waiting for me as I step through the veil are my parents, grandparents, three brothers, Arlo, Bill, and Marlo; two sisters, Donna and Marie; a baby daughter, three sons, Randy, Kerry, and Parley Sears; a grandson, Jayson Sears; and numerous others. I loved my various callings in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint Wards.

 

I married Blayne Sears December 13, 1950. From this marriage I have four sons, Daryl (Valerie), Byhalia, MS; Randy (deceased), Kerry (deceased), and Parley (deceased); daughter, Susan (Kevin) Brown, Ogden, UT. I divorced Blayne in 1970.

 

I married Ray Rizzi on June 19, 1973 and we were sealed in the Bountiful Utah Temple in 1997. We have one son, Zachary (Miranda), Riverdale, UT. I have 12 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren. I love being called “Aunt Maxine” to many.

 

I went to Weber High School. As a young girl I loved to roller skate at the Berthana Roller Rink. I loved being a waitress in my younger days! I loved to read, I loved to work word puzzles, I love my family, I loved our road trips, I loved our trip to Italy (beautiful country), I loved growing big, beautiful plants in our home, I love my husband Ray, I do love ALL my family most of all!!!!
