COPPIN, Maxine Erla. Maxine passed away peacefully on November 4, 2011 with family by her side. Born July 11, 1935 in Flin Flon, Manitoba, she moved with her family to Vancouver in 1941. Maxine met Ray on a blind date and they were married May 11, 1957. After raising their family in East Vancouver, Maxine worked as a sales clerk with Woodward’s before retiring after 15 years. In 2002 Ray and Maxine moved to South Surrey. Predeceased by Ray (2009), Maxi/Nana will be missed and lovingly remembered by son David and wife Lise, daughter Shakti, the grandsons she dearly loved – Chris, Matt, Oliver, Mike, and Dillon; sister Lorraine(John), cousin Linda(Doug), sister-in-law Betty, Cornina(Al), and many nieces, nephews, and friends. Aside from devotion to family, Maxi’s passions included reading, camping, garage sales, her angels, and traveling around the world. Maxi will always be remembered for her bright smile and generous spirit. The family extends heartfelt thanks to the staff of Peace Arch Hospital and the Peace Arch Hospice Society for their care and compassion. Memories can be shared by visiting No service by request.
