    Maxine Louise Scrogin
    December 7, 1923 - July 3, 2012

    Maxine was born to Ray and Sarah Solomon on December 7, 1923 in Caldwell, Idaho. She was one of 11 children.

    Maxine passed peacefully into the presence of her Lord while she slept Tuesday, July 3, 2012. She is preceded in death by her loving husband of 57 years, Harold Scrogin [40483], who passed away November 18, 2010.

    She had a large and adoring family and is survived by her children, Peggy Bowen (Ken), of Williams, and Jack Rentz (Freddie) of Live Oak as well as 11 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren, and her brother William Solomon of San Dimas.

    She met and married her first husband, Jack M. Rentz in 1940 in Denver, Co., where their two children were born.

    The family moved to Southern California in 1945. Eight years later, while moving to Live Oak, where they were building their business, Jack died in an accident.

    Maxine finished construction and continued running the business and later opened and operated her own dress shop.

    She married Harold, a Live Oak local, in 1953. Together, the couple ran a farming operation and spent many wonderful years full of fun, laughter, and dancing.

    Her family remembers her as a loving and godly example, dedicated to teaching, supporting, encouraging and loving her children and grandchildren, which she considered her life's greatest joy and investment.

    She did various bookkeeping and tax preparation jobs, and also served as the long-time secretary for the Live Oak Cemetery District.

    Maxine was a wonderful student who loved school and graduated at the head of her class. Her love of learning was something she carried with her throughout the rest of her life and she looked forward to her daily crossword puzzles (which she always did in pen).

    Her sudden death leaves behind an emptiness in each of the hearts of those who loved her, but all are thankful for the many precious memories and lifetime of love shared with "Nana". Although missed, her family is thankful for the reassurance that "to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord", and are comforted in the knowledge that "to live is Christ, to die is gain."

    Visitation will be at Ullrey Memorial Chapel on Monday, July 9, 2012 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Internment will be private with a memorial service to be held at a later date.

    Harold W. Scrogin Harold was born in Live Oak, California to Henry & Eudora Scrogin 20 minutes after his twin brother, Henry, on July 13, 1929. He went to be with the Lord on November 18, 2010. His wonderfully good natured disposition, hearty laugh, infectious smile and willingness to help anywhere will be greatly missed by all of us who knew and loved him. Harold was a life- long resident of Live Oak, graduating from Live Oak High School and attending Yuba College. He served in the military during the Korean War and kept his family enthralled and amused with stories of army life. He was a farmer for 50 years and a member of Sunsweet Growers. One of Harold's defining characteristics was his love of people and his family, who were the center of his life. He had great joy in serving others, working on any community project, as well as sharing the produce from his large garden and family orchard. He loved the outdoors and was an avid hunter and fisherman, spending many happy hours with his friends and family enjoying these activities. He has been the recipient of many expressions of appreciation including the Citizen of the Year award, Grand Marshall of the Peach Festival Parade and "Lion" of the year along with his twin brother Henry. He was a charter member of the Live Oak Lions Club with 56 years of perfect attendance. He also served as chairman of the Live Oak Lion's Christmas Food Basket Program, assisted by his wife, for many years. Harold has been a devoted husband to Maxine for 57 years. He will be dearly missed by her and his children Peggy (Kennith) Bowen, Jack (Freddie) Rentz, his 11 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren. He is also survived by his brothers Henry (Darline) Scrogin, Willard (Jennifer) Scrogin, his sister Elinor (Ulysess) Self, and numerous nieces & nephews. He was preceded in death by his sister, Delores "Lovey" (Robert) Clark. His great heart of generosity, loyalty and love for each one, is "Pop's" lasting legacy to us. Visitation will be at Ullrey Memorial Chapel from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 23, 2010. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, December 4, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. at The Father's House in Live Oak on Highway 99.
