The Tonawanda News

SALT LAKE CITY, UT — Maxine Unis (McIntyre) Leclair died on November 16th in Salt Lake City, Utah, at the age of 96. The keys to her longevity were that she remained active, enjoyed life, had a positive                  attitude and never considered herself old. She often would say when describing someone in her long-term care facility "so and so, now she is an older lady."

Maxine was a lifetime resident of North Tonawanda until her move five years ago to Salt Lake City to be with her daughter and family. Maxine taught grade school for years, the majority of which were at Colonel Payne Elementary. As a teacher, she made a difference in the lives of her students, concentrating on developing reading skills and instilling a love of reading in her     proteges. Maxine loved music, was a great harmonizer and spent many weekends dancing until the wee hours. She was a strong bridge player with masterpoints and at her peak often played bridge three times a day. As she moved from North Tonawanda to Salt Lake City to       independent senior living, and finally a long-term care facility, she always remained pleasant and positive.

Maxine is survived by her daughter, Marsha Leclair-Marzolf, her husband Mark Marzolf; and their two children, Cassandra and Luke Leclair-Marzolf.
