HARRISON — Evelyn K. Maxfield, 82, died on Wednesday, Dec. 16, 2015, at the Hospice House in Auburn.

Evelyn was born on June 25, 1933, the daughter of Hazel and Merton Kimball. She grew up in South Waterford and graduated from Bridgton Academy, Class of 1952.

On Oct. 4, 1952, she married the love of her life, Durward H. Maxfield of Harrison, and they made Harrison their home. Evelyn was an active member of her community, longtime member of the Bridgton Alliance Church, serving her Savior and church family in many capacities, and a member of the Gideons International Auxiliary. She was a gifted artist, sharing her paintings with many people she loved. Her love of the outdoors was evident by her enjoyment of hiking, snowshoeing, gardening and the way she “kept their yard.” Her family was her greatest joy. She was proud of them and stayed very interested in all of their activities.

Evelyn is survived by her loving husband of 63 years; son, Vern; two granddaughters and four great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her son, Kenneth; her parents; sisters, Edna and Ethel; and brothers, Merritt and William.
