Maxine Marie James
I have known Maxine for many years. My fondest memory of her was at my birthday party where she danced the soul train which I think she won. She really knew how to enjoy herself. I also remember the fantastic dinner parties she used to have and really spoilt her guest with delightful meals, explaining the ingredients and told stories of where you could obtained item, and we always had lots to take home. Maxine was very reflective in debates where we would analyse a given subject.. She was a great mentor to the BAME labour members and supported and encouraged them in their progression. She really loved her family her husband and daughter and would always mention them in conversation. She had so much more to give and was so full of life. May she rest in peace a job well done and may her family be comforted in that she bought joy and hope to many people.
