Maxine Estelle Chappell, 78, of Glendale, Arizona, entered heaven on November 23, 2020. She succumbed to a five-year battle with Alzheimer’s Disease.
Maxine was born on January 23, 1942 in Ashtabula, Ohio. In high school, she accepted Jesus as her personal savior. This most important decision led her
to Pillsbury Bible College where she met her life partner, Dr. Larry A. Chappell. They were married in September of 1961.
She is survived by her husband of 59 years, children, Paul (Terrie) Chappell, Mark (Lynda) Chappell, Elisabeth (David) Richard, and Stephen (Lisa) Chappell. Maxine leaves her beloved 18 grandchildren and 32 great grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister, Kathy Duignan and brother, William (Susie)Brennan.
She was a woman of grace and beauty. She served as a pastor’s wife for over 55 years. Her passion in life was to share the gospel with every person she met. She wanted all to know there was true hope in Christ. She and her husband served a term as missionaries in South Korea and traveled the world several times sharing God’s love and forgiveness to others.
Proverbs 31: 28 states, “Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her
husband also, and he praiseth her.” Maxine’s children are honored to have a
mother who exemplified the love of Christ. She had an unrelenting love for her husband and exuded the very grace of God in her daily walk.
The family asks that in lieu of flowers, Maxine’s passion of winning souls is recognized through donations given to her granddaughter, Amie (Richard)
and husband, Luke Chermue as they minister in Thailand. Gifts may be sent to
the Freeway Baptist Church, 8501 N. Black Canyon Hwy., Phoenix, AZ 85021
and designated to: Luke and Amie Chermue in memory of Mrs. Chappell.
