E-mail Print PDF

Maxine Scott, in front, held her 95th birthday party at McDonald’s east Jan. 27, and then moved her guests to Earl’s for breakfast.

Seated behind Maxine is Roberta Wolthers, and on the opposite side of the table, at left, is Scott’s niece from Florida, and Tina Mattis from Wyoming (Joe Zecca’s daughter) on the right. Standing is Franklin Zecca, a longtime Gallup friend.

Maxine moved to Gallup in 1963 to work at El Rancho in the restaurant and is a well-known character around town. Her two surviving children, one in Salt Lake City and the other in Texas, were unable to attend, as was her grandson Marvin Gray, his wife Rachel, and their two children Brandon and Marissa. Other guests at the party were Norman Wolthers and the photographer. Photo Credit: Tom Hartsock
