Obituary for Maxine Burger

August 4, 1927 - April 13, 2018
Austin, Texas | Age 90


Maxine Burger, born August 4, 1927 in Thiel, Arkansas, founder of Kim's Cleaners, Inc. died Friday, April 13th, 2018 at the Longhorn Village Resort in Austin, Texas, of natural causes.

Maxine grew up in Kilgore, Texas. She was a Kilgore Rangerette and graduated from Kilgore College. Her first career was in banking which lasted about 24 years, until she retired in 1973. She then worked as bookkeeper for Branum Cleaners on Barton Springs Road, until she purchased the business, renamed it Kim's Cleaners, and moved it to Westbank Drive in Westlake. Maxine created a thriving business with a stellar reputation. In all things, Maxine Burger consistently epitomized grace and elegance. She lived life exuberantly; she loved raising miniature horses and donkeys and taking cruises. Max was charming, clever, unpredictable, and endearing. Maxine listened closely; she was empathetic and forgiving. She could charm the warts off a toad, and make a friend for life. She inspired all who met her with a positive spirit and optimism. Maxine loved taking a trip to the horse races, and slot machines were an art form for her. Casino's mistakenly invited her back to recoup their losses… they only went deeper into the red.

Maxine was preceded by her late husband Danny Burger, who passed in 2004. She is survived by her son Kim McBride, and his wife Jacque, their 4 children, and 7 great-grandchildren; her daughter Kay Wray and her husband, Jim; Danny's 4 children, Anne Entrekin, her husband Mark, and their 2 children; Trish Burger and her 3 children; Kathryn Burger; David Burger and wife Pamela. Her friend, Dr. Jerry Fineg brought her much joy in the last few years of her life; as did all of her friends at Longhorn Village.
