Maxine was born in Dubuque on December 14, 1933, the daughter of Gladys (Fallon) and Herbert Young. Here, in Dubuque, she met and married the love of her life, Leon Biedermann. They went on to have seven children and thus started our family tree.

She was the sweetest and most caring mother, wife and grandmother. She loved spending time with her abundant amount of grandchildren. She also enjoyed doing her puzzle books, watching shows with her kids and reading. Her favorite time of year was holidays with her family.

her 6 children,
Lyle (Debbie) Biedermann, East Dubuque, IL,
Bruce Biedermann,
Rick (Kim) Biedermann,
Wendy Anderson, all of Dubuque,

her 18 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren, and her 4 great-great grandchildren;

and a son-in-law,
