Claudia Maxine Berry, daughter of the late Claud and Ruby (Skaggs) Baker, was born on December 20, 1943, in Huggins, Missouri, and departed this life on October 28, 2017, in the Autumn Oaks Caring Center, Mountain Grove, Missouri. She was 73 years, 10 months, and 8 days of age.

Maxine grew up in the Huggins community and attended the Peace Valley School. She was united in marriage to Wilbur Earl Hutsell on August 17, 1960. Five children were born to this union.
