Maxine was born in Rising Star, Texas on January 20, 1933 to William Westley and Dolly Inglet whose families were long time cattle ranchers.

While married to Roy, she gave birth to 4 boys and 1 girl. They started as Dairymen and moved on to a farming operation. Maxine was a homemaker who took pride in being a loving mom, Nani (grandmother), feeding the family with homemade meals, baking, gardening, sewing, painting and working in the fields side by side with Roy. After Roys death in 1978, many years later Maxine re-married William Dructor of Modesto, CA.
