Mrs. Maxine Jewel Engron was born April 6, 937, to the proud parents of Josephus Smith and Rosie Lee Frye Smith, in Brownsville, Tennessee.She received her primary and secondary education in the local Tennessee Public School System.  She completed her secondary education here in Indianapolis, having  moved to the city in 1953.

Maxine professed her life to Christ at an early age at Mount   Moriah Baptist Church. Later she moved her membership  to Second James Missionary Baptist Church serving on the Usher Board and also as a charter      member of the church.

Maxine united in holy matrimony to Wardell Engron in 2001. Together they shared many years of  joy and  happiness and had a daughter, Mary, who preceded her in death. She reared all her children in a God   fearing way.

Maxine  experienced several different  areas of employment  in her lifetime. Anyone who knew Maxine  or “Mac” knew what was   important to her, which was her family.   She was a loving mother, wife, sister, aunt, grandmother and  a true friend to many.  She loved to dance, sing and cook; but most importantly, she loved taking care of her  grandchildren. The characteristics  she instilled in her children were, “To be strong and independent, but also stick together.”

Maxine’s  house was always open to others on every occasion. She was a beautiful person, both inside and out, and she will be sorely missed by all that loved her.

Mrs. Maxine Jewel Engron departed this earthly life on    October 19, 2017. She was preceded in death by both of her parents; her husband;  daughter, Mary Lou Abell;  son, William Jones; sisters, Mary Sue and Geraldine and brothers, Charlie, Jack, Joe and Leroy.

She leaves to cherish her memory her daughters, Laura A. Parker (Willie), Virginia  A. Bailey (Phillip) and Linda J. Jones; sons, Roy L. Smith, Richard  H. Jones (Carla) and Anthony Jones;  sisters, Pearline Rayner (Robert), Junell Calvert, Jennie Reed  and Mabel Pettigrew. We are proud to say she left a big legacy of  fifty six  grandchildren, sixty-six great grandchildren and thirty-five great great grandchildren, and a host of nieces and nephews, other family members and friends who all loved her dearly.

I am so sorry for your loss. We are all saddened when anyone loses their love one to the enemy death. May the God of all comfort, comfort you and your family at this difficult time.
