Slater, Maxine Hartline

Maxine Hartline Slater, formerly of Farmington, passed away Saturday, December 7th at the Avon Health Center. She was the beloved wife of Andrew (Pete) E. Slater, Jr., for 60 years. They had met at a dance at the Bond Hotel the night before he was shipped out to the Pacific during World War II. They communicated while he was in the service and married six months after his return from duty. She was born July 3, 1921 in Hartford, the daughter of the late Jack and Mary Manion Hartline. She was also predeceased by her sister Geraldine Manion. Maxine was a graduate of Bulkeley High School, Class of 1939. She spent most of her career working for the John Hancock Insurance Company. In retirement, she loved to shop, read her Harlequin Romances, and cruise around with her friend Jean Dibiasio. She never met a restaurant she didn’t love. She is survived by her many nieces and nephews- Barbara, Renie, Bill, Suzanne, Andrew, Bob, Bud and her “baby” Hank. The family would like to thank all of those involved in Maxine’s care, most especially the staff at Avon Health Center. Funeral services will be private.
