Maxine Ida Holst was born October 9, 1936, in Saint Paul, MN, the daughter of Fred and Leona (Krause) Holst. She graduated from Johnson High School and on August 27, 1955, she was united in marriage to Louis A. Sieling. The couple moved to Perham and together they ran a dairy farm. In 1980, they sold their farm and moved to Little McDonald Lake. Maxine then started working at Perham Memorial Hospital. She worked there for over 20 years until her retirement.
Maxine enjoyed quilting, baking, playing cards, traveling, and being active in her church. She was known for her distinctive laugh along with a good knee-slap. She loved spending time with her kids and grandkids and her favorite years were spent living at the lake.
Surviving Maxine is her daughter Lenore (Doug) Becker; her sons Wayne (Cindy), Louis E. (LaDonna), and David (Christine); her grandchildren Sarah, David, Eric, Justin, Amber, Ryan, Brent, and Nathan; and 12 great-grandchildren.
