Maxine Anderson Rembert, beloved wife, mother, and grandmother went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, May 22, 2021, at the age of 89.
She was born in Polk County, on Jan. 26, 1932, to the late William "Bill" Anderson and Ethel Payne Anderson. She was also preceded in death by her siblings: Jimmy Anderson and Christine Anderson Kyle.
Maxine completed almost two years of nursing school prior to responding to God's call to full-time ministry. She served as a licensed Church of God minister and full-time evangelist for five years before marrying William "Bill" Rembert on June 30, 1957, and pastoring alongside her husband (in various areas of eastern North Carolina) until the age of 82, at which time they retired and moved to Cleveland.
Maxine was gifted with an abiding and tenacious faith in God, knowing Him as a loving Heavenly Father who was willing and able to do the impossible on behalf of His children. She was deeply devoted to her husband, children and grandchildren. She will be dearly missed by her family, friends and all who knew her.
Maxine is survived by her husband, William P. "Bill" Rembert; one daughter, Karen Rembert Holley (Jeffrey C Holley) of Cleveland; one son, William "Paul" Rembert of California; grandchildren: Hannah Holley, Daniel Holley (Aubrey), and Kayla Rust; one brother, Ray Anderson of Maryville; and several beloved nieces and nephews.
A Remembrance of Life service will be conducted at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, June 2, 2021, at Jim Rush Funeral Homes, Wildwood Avenue Chapel, with the Rev. Jeffrey C. Holley officiating.
Interment will follow in Mobile Baptist Church Cemetery in McCaysville, Ga., with the Rev. Guinn Green officiating.
The family will receive friends on Wednesday from noon until the time of the service at 2 p.m. at the funeral home.
