Maxine Cohn was born in 1930 in Los Angeles, CA. After graduating public high school in LA, she attended UCLA and majored in Education. After graduating, she followed her dream and went into teaching. Maxine was married for 60 years until her husband passed away a year ago. For the first few years of their marriage they lived in LA, where her husband was a social worker and she continued teaching. Later, the family moved to Chicago and Maxine’s husband went into the meat business. The couple had four children, and Maxine is a proud mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. About four years ago, they moved to Florida when Maxine’s husband took ill. As his sickness progressed, they moved into the ALF where her husband passed away last year. Maxine only recently started coming to my classes and is very interested to learn about her Judaism.
