Obituary for Maxine Mayer Silverstein

Maxine Mayer Silverstein, 72, passed away peacefully on July 6, 2017 surrounded by her family. She was born on December 21, 1944 in Newark, NJ, daughter of the late Sam and Sophie Mayer.

Maxine lived in Brooklyn, NY until she moved to Charlotte at the age of 11. She graduated from Myers Park High School in 1962 and attended Women's College - now called UNC Greensboro.

Maxine met her husband Gary, when she was attending Myers Park Junior High and their love story spanned nearly 60 years together. Maxine and Gary owned and worked together at Mann Travels, a travel agency based in Charlotte, and Maxine was a driving force in growing the agency. Prior to Mann Travels she worked at Eastern Airlines in the Vacation Planning department.

Maxine had a warm, embracing personality and always tried to live life to the fullest. She loved trying out new restaurants, travelling around the world (visiting 6 of the 7 continents), and spending time with family and friends. Her true pride and joy were her five granddaughters, including two sets of twins: Hazel, Isabel, and Lucy Silverstein of Charlotte and Adele and Charlotte Hoffman of Palo Alto, California.

She is survived by her husband of 49 years, Gary Silverstein, son Scott, daughter Kara (David Hoffman), twin sister Harriet Kader (Bud), sister-in-law Robyn Vandresser (Bill), niece Arlyn Lipsher (Jonathan), nephew Steve Kader and former daughter-in-law Tami.

A funeral service will be held at 1 p.m. on Sunday, July 9, 2017 at Temple Israel, 4901 Providence Road. Interment at the Hebrew Cemetery to follow.

Memorial Contributions can be made to Jewish Family Services and/or Temple Israel.
