In 1938 she met George Reitzel while he was in the Civilian Conservation Corps working in Reynolds County. They were married June 3, 1939. Shortly thereafter, she moved to St Louis with her husband. She and George had two daughters, Brenda and Joyce. In addition to being a mother and homemaker, Maxine worked outside the home, as a retail salesperson at Famous Barr for over 30 years.
