Maxine Sullivan was born on September 25, 1944 in New York City to the late Harold Sullivan Sr. and Laura Sullivan.

While growing up in the Ft. Greene section of Brooklyn when most children were outside playing, Maxine would be at home studying or at the library. She attended PS 57, Sands Junior High School and Sareh J. Hale High School. After graduation, she attended Long Island University, the Brooklyn Campus, and obtained her Bachelor's Degree in Business Management.

Maxine worked at J.Widder Company where she met her best friend Beverly. Maxine was knowledgeable, thorough and business-oriented which was a testament to how she managed her life. To advance in her career, she joined the Avon Corporation where she worked for over 30 years until retirement. After retirement, Maxine could not remain idle and went on to work with Congressman Eliot Engle whom she loved. She worked with the Congressman until she was called home.

Maxine was a lifelong member of the National Council of Negro Women Incorporated and the National Associaton for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP); she was the recipient of the 369th Veterans Association Community Award and President of the Co-op City Building Association and a member of her local Community Board #12. She was a great philanthropist and donated to several churches, charities and organizations.

Maxine had a colorful peronality which she expressed through her dressing. She loved traveling, shopping and visiting the casinos as well as organizing bus trips and cruises.

One of her favorite treats was sushi and she loved frozen yogurt from Forty Carrots. She loved life and the finer things that life had to offer and enjoyed her life to the fullest. Maxine was a sweet, feisty woman who would always tell it like it was and until the end. Maxine mind remained charismatic and witty. Her favorite line was still- It's a time for you to go now".
