Doris Dixie Allen Maxwell, 76, passed away in Newcastle on September 17, 2020. A graveside service will be held on Saturday, September 19, 2020 in Newcastle Cemetery at 2 PM. Arrangements are under the direction of Morrison Funeral Home.
Doris was born on April 18, 1944 in Newcastle to the late Gyle Columbus Allen and Vera Francis Robinson Allen. She married her husband of 60 years, R.B. Maxwell on February 20, 1960 in Odessa. She loved her family and friends deeply. Her door was always open to visitors and she would make a point to tell them, "we love ya!" after each and every visit. She could usually be found sitting at her kitchen table visiting with one or two of the many people who called her MeMe. She had a servant's heart just like her Lord and Savior, Jesus. She will be missed beyond what our words can express.
Doris is survived by her husband, R.B. Maxwell of Newcastle; sons, Rick Maxwell and wife Gina of Newcastle, and Michael Maxwell and wife Sonya of Newcastle; daughter, Tammy Mays and husband Jerry of Newcastle; ten grandkids; and twenty two great grandkids.
She was preceded in death by her son, David Gene Maxwell; and brothers, Julian Stevens, Gyle Columbus "Dick" Allen Jr., and Sherwood "Mert" Allen, and Harold Allen; and sisters, Anneta Allen, Lois Wynell "Nell" Johnson, Billie Biggs, and Peggy Darlene Haygood.
