Maxine Rose Anderson Lamers
Maxine Lamers will celebrate her 100th birthday on Nov. 22. She was born in Spokane and has lived in Eastern Washington for 96 years. She met her husband, Gerold Frank Lamers, at a USO dance in Spokane, and the couple was married in 1943.
Lamers worked at Newberry’s, a loan company, and the University of Washington. Her most rewarding life achievement is being married for 77 years to the love of her life and her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.
She credits her long and healthy life to keeping active, being grateful and enjoying every day with family and friends. Her most memorable moment in the last 100 years was the moon landing.
Her children are Judy Halstead of Spokane and Frank Lamers of Federal Way. Lamers has three grandchildren, four great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren.
