BATH – Maxine D. Rioux, 89, of Washington Street, Bath, died peacefully on Monday, May 25, with her loving son by her side.

She was born in Lisbon Falls on Sept. 27, 1919, the daughter of Charles and Ruby Coffin Dennison. She attended local schools and graduated from Edward Little High School in Auburn.

Maxine married Gerald Rioux and together they made their home and raised their family in Bath. She worked as a medical billing clerk and receptionist for Dr. Paul Ficthner in Bath for more than 20 years.

In her spare time she loved music and dancing, especially big band and swing music. She was an active volunteer at Mid Coast Hospital for many years, knitting and sewing items which would be given to patients in the hospital.

Her greatest love was spending time with her family and following her grandsons’ many sporting events while they were in school.

She is survived by her son, Timothy C. Rioux of Bath; three grandsons, Richard Rioux of the West Coast, Mathew Rioux of Bath, and John Rioux of Bath.

Maxine was predeceased by her husband in 2002; a son, James P. Rioux in 2001; a sister, Gertrude Snow; and a brother, Charles W. Dennison.
