Maxine Restaino

Feb. 21, 1926 — Nov. 12, 2013

Maxine passed peacefully after her heart failed on Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2013, at 87. This Illinois native and her husband brought their family to California in 1956. She was a dedicated and loyal friend, daughter, mom and grandma and her faith was an important part of her life. Thoughtfully, she remembered everyone’s birthday; she didn’t need a calendar. More recently she was active as a founding member of Gals for Gains investment club, a volunteer at Holy Trinity Church, a Cameron Park Newcomers Club committee member, an expert bridge player, a recruiter for duplicate and an avid card player.

Maxine was preceded in death by her husband of 53 years, Pat Restaino; brother, Edward Goertz; and parents, Max and Mabelle Goertz. She will be dearly missed by her children, Dan Restaino (Gloria), Mic Restaino (Maddy), Steve Restaino and Patti Restaino. “Gram” will be fondly remembered by her grandchildren, Mike Restaino, Joe Restaino (Christina), Cia Mattress (Ben) and Patrick Restaino; and great-grandson, Dominic Mattress.

Over the years Maxine and Pat drove across the country to visit friends and always seemed to laugh and tell stories as they played cards. They also enjoyed traveling to Europe and Hawaii. We all have fond memories of her kind words, ability to win at most card games and her caring nature. She will be missed by everyone who shared a conversation with her.

A memorial service will be held at Holy Trinity Church, 3111 Tierra de Dios Drive in El Dorado Hills, Calif., at 11 a.m., on Saturday, Nov. 30.
