Maxine M. Gildred, age 89, passed away Tuesday, September 29, 2020 with her daughter Charlotte by her side. She was born in Houlton on February 7, 1931 a daughter of the late John P. Wright, Sr. and Theodosia (Folsom) Wright.
Maxine, known to many as Maggie and Grammy Maggie, enjoyed spending time with family and friends at her home and especially at her camp at The Forks. Whether picking wild flowers, blueberries or raspberries; fishing or going “moose-ing” she loved her camp. She was an avid reader, loved gardening, knitting, rug hooking and other various crafts. She was a past member of the KVM Club of Belgrade and worked for many years as a housekeeper for several families in the Belgrade/Belgrade Lakes area. Her faith was important to her and she was communicant of St. Theresa’s in Oakland in its past years and a communicant of St. Michael Parish community.
Maxine was pre-deceased by her husband of 58 years, Frederick K. Gildred Sr.; a son, Frederick K. Gildred, Jr.; three brothers: John P. Wright, Jr., Gerald and Robert Wright; a sister, Norma Jean Emery and her beloved grandson, Joseph Gildred.
She is survived by her children: Judy McLellan and her husband Bob of Longs, SC; Terrence “Nick” Gildred, Sr. and his wife Elaine of Herndon, VA and Charlotte Seckler and her husband Ed of Casco; two sisters: Mary Arch of Otisfield and Elizabeth Cone of Houlton; 6 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Also a very special part of her life was Ella Plaisted and her husband David and their children.
At her request, there will be no public visiting hours. A chapel service will be held at a later date in Maine Veterans Memorial Cemetery, Mt. Vernon Rd., Augusta.
Donations in memory of Maxine may be made to: Maine Veterans Home, 310 Cony Rd., Augusta, ME, 04330, or charity of your choice.
The family would like to thank all of the staff at MVH for the loving care that was given to her during her stay and the staff with MG Hospice.

Our family has such great memories of her! She was someone who not only came in to make our home look nicer and allow me to work, but she was part of our famil She would always do these special touches, even bringing back a little gift for our daughter when she went on a trip. I often would tell people of the special aspects of living in a small town in Maine, surrounded by great people like your Mom and Fred. Thanks for sharing her with us!
