She was an active member in the First Baptist Church and the last few years at Cornerstone Baptist Church. She loved her church family.
She married the love of her life, J.L. “Cotton” Caveness on August 22, 1944. They lived the first part of their married life in Jacksonville. During this time, on January 2, 1947, Jimmy was born.

Three years later they moved back to Jacksonville and on August 26, 1958 Terry was born which completed their family.
Maxine was a stay-at-home mom until Terry started school. She worked for Eastside Elementary School in the cafeteria. Later she worked for the dress factory, purse factory and finally at Beall’s in the credit department. She retired from there to take care of her mom along with two aunts and an uncle.
Maxine was preceded in death by her parents, Curtis and Lois Goodson; her husband, J.L. “Cotton” Caveness; a son, Terry Bolin Caveness and two grandsons, Jamie and Eric Caveness.
