About Patricia (Hanson,Severson) Maxwell

Never lose your childlike innocence!

Formidable! Resourceful! Resilient! And tenaciously optimistic!

Grounded in reality but I dream big!


My children have recollections of their maternal grandparents and maternal great grandparents and they also have recollections of their paternal grandparents. If I want my children and grandchlldren to know those who came before them; then I must build the bridge between them. I have become the link to the generations which stand on either side of me and either side of their father. I have taken the responsibility to knit their hearts together through love and respect even though they may never have known each other personally. My grandchildren will have no knowledge of their family history if I do nothing to preserve it for them. That which I do not in some way record will be lost at my death; and that which I do not pass on to posterity; they will never have. The work of gathering and sharing eternal family keepsakes is a personal responsibility. It cannot be passed off or given to another. It is truly a precious work in progress.
