In Care of the Family

Hannah Maxine “Nan” Hohenshell was born June 27, 1921 to Paul and Mary (Filipi) Strate on a farm northeast of Greenwood, Nebraska. Maxine attended the “Loder” School District 35 for five years and the “Lemon” School District 49 for 3 years. She then stayed home to help her parents on the farm.

On January 30, 1946 she was united in marriage to Frank Hohenshell in Omaha, Nebraska. They lived a short time south of Ashland, and later moved to a farm southeast of Greenwood. This is where they raised their daughter and lived the rest of their lives. Her family called her “Nan”. She passed away at her home November 15, 2014.

Maxine enjoyed all aspects of life on a farm and being a farmer’s wife. She was always a hard worker helping in the fields and with livestock. She enjoyed raising chickens and selling farm fresh eggs. She was an avid gardener of fruits and vegetables, and enjoyed canning the produce she worked so hard to grow. Her other hobbies included sewing, reading, and compiling information about her family history. She loved playing cards and visiting with family and friends. Maxine was a member of the Ashland Senior Center and served in every capacity on their board.

She is survived by her daughter Mary (Robert) Buck; grandchildren Daniel (Carol) Buck, David (Terri) Buck, Douglas (Sheri) Buck, Lora (Benjamin) Hazlett; great-grandchildren, Wade, Shayna, Cody, Mitchell, Carlie, Laura, Philip, Faith, and Braxton Buck, Kayti (Ryan) Boykin; great great-grandchildren Wyett and Ryker Boykin. She was preceded in death by her husband Frank, parents, and brother Paul.
