Mildred Evie Maxwell

Evie was the oldest child of Tom & Gilly Maxwell. she got polio when she was 7 & spent the rest of her life in a wheelchair. she learned to do things from her chair...making beds, sweeping floors, helping with younger siblings. She never married. She died while visiting her sister, my Grandma Grace, at Trenton. Grandma had her wheelchair in the basement until they sold her house when she went to the nursing home.

Mildred Evie Maxwell

the cemetery translation from 1964 lists Evie as the daughter of Thos. & Gilly (Higdon) WHITTEN. Whitten was Thomas' middle name.
