Annie Maxine Hunt was born on Jan 1, 1929, and raised in Poquoson VA. She was a true Poquoson Native and never wanted to live anywhere else.

She graduated from Poquoson High School and began her Civil Service career at Langley AFB as a Secretary. Maxine retired from Civil Service with 35 years of dedicated service. She had the good fortune of enjoying her retirement years with friends and family in her beloved Poquoson, enjoying the simple things in life. Maxine's home was always where her heart was and it was there she was happiest.
