CHATHAM, IL - Mary Maxine Sublette, 95, of Chatham, IL (formerly of Charleston, IL) passed away on Monday, April 11, 2022, at her residence, surrounded by family.

Maxine was born on October 5, 1926, to Don Haddock and Esther (Rothrock) Haddock in Diona, IL. She married James Clifford Sublette on September 6, 1948, in Corinth, Mississippi. He preceded her in death in 2003, and they had two daughters.  She was also preceded in death by her parents, daughter Sandra Sue, brother, Roe (Norma) Haddock, infant brother, stepmother Madeline Haddock, step-brother-in-law Richard Sherman, and brother-in-law Jack Sublette.

Maxine graduated from Charleston High School in 1944. She was a full-time homemaker. Jim never wanted Maxine to work outside the home, not even in the yard, for fear of her getting hurt. He wanted her to stay home and take care of their daughters. She did that with lots of love and kindness and taught them the love of God. Maxine was a member of First Baptist Church in Charleston.

Maxine is survived by her daughter, Jeri Lynn Knaus of Chatham; two grandchildren, Jason (Chris) Benge of University City, MO, and Kylie (David) Young of Chatham, IL; three great-grandchildren, Laila, Laikn and Briggs.
