She was united in marriage to Carl G. Hohbach on September 2, 1951 at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Plankinton. They resided on farms near Plankinton, Alexandria, and White Lake where they reared their children Sandra, Lynne, and Brad. They retired to Plankinton in 1991 where Carl passed away in 1993.

Later the family expanded with in-laws, Warren (Sandra) Sieg, Mark (Lynne) Davis, and Ellen (Brad) McAlexander. They welcomed eight grandchildren who were the joy of her life and seven great grandchildren who were a blessing in her “golden” years.

Maxine taught school for thirty-three years. She enjoyed each class and kept in contact with some students for many years.

Growing up I remember the Matteson girls and always thought they were really nice. Couldn't help but be nice with Albert and Alice as parents. My grandma, Agnes Mullivan, would take me along to see Alice sometimes, was always pleasant visit. The old neighbor hood is about gone, we're hanging on to Elmer Sorenson, who seems in pretty good shape at 95 yrs old. My son, Craig Dodds, bought the old Mullivan school and plans to move it from Plankinton to Mullivan farmland, near where it was originally. He plans to repair it and keep memorabilia in it. When its done, ck it out and if you have any keepsakes you'd like to put in it, let us know. Maxine was a nice person, and I have Igood memories of all the Mattesons. Mary Ann Mullivan Dodds
