Kolosso, Maxine A.
Maxine was born on December 28, 1934 in Shawano as the daughter of the late Willard and Hazel (Barker) Bricco. Maxine’s family moved to Clintonville when she was a young girl. She worked at the Greentree Health & Rehabilitation Center in Clintonville as a nurses aid and later was employed at Marion Plywood for 12 years prior to her health declining. In October of 1984, Maxine was united in marriage to Joseph “Joe” Kolosso Jr. at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Big Falls. The couple resided in Big Falls prior to moving to Clintonville where they were members of the Christus Lutheran Church. Joe preceded his wife in death on July 16, 2013. Some of her favorite hobbies included playing cards with Marcy, playing bingo, working on puzzles, reading suspense novels, and she loved watching and spending time with her grandchildren. Maxine could be very sassy at times and will be remembered for her laughter and smile.
