October 23, 1927 - May 24, 2018
Maxine Tanner, age 90, passed away on May 24, 2018, in St. George, UT. Maxine was born on October 23, 1927, in St. George, but was raised in Washington City, UT, by her parents Victor and Erma Reber Iverson. She was the middle of three children, the eldest being her brother Austin “Pete” Iverson, and the youngest her brother Mervin Iverson. Maxine was the last of her siblings to pass away and return home. Maxine met and married her husband, Clare A Tanner, and together were sealed in the St. George Temple in 1953. They moved to Las Vegas, NV, where they raised their three children. Later, they returned to Southern Utah where they resettled just one-half block north from her family home where she grew up in. A few of her hobbies and life-long loves include her deep love of Native American history and culture, naming every mountain in the world, and knowing every species of bird native to the southwestern part of the United States. Maxine was also an avid and very successful antique dealer and collector. Maxine was never lost for words when speaking with people. She reached out to all, not only those she knew, but strangers as well. All three of her children agree, they had the most wonderful parents in the world, which contributed to a charming childhood. Maxine is survived by: her three children: Debbie Tanner Bailey, Gregory C Tanner, and Melanie Tanner Gibson; five grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren. Maxine was preceded in death by her: parents, Victor and Erma Iverson; husband, Clare Tanner; brothers, Austin & Mervin Iverson; and a grandson, Stephen Hackmann, whom she all loved so much. A graveside service will be held in Maxine’s honor on Friday, June 8, 2018, at 11:00 a.m., at Washington City Cemetery, 300 Park View Drive, Washington, UT.
