With sadness, we share that Beth Maxwell passed away on January 17, 2024.
Sarah Beth Burchfield Maxwell was the co-founder of Maxwell Hardwood Flooring, along with her husband, Tommy Maxwell, where she served as vice-president of the company. She used her teaching skills in training and development, which was key to the success and growth of the company. She was an instrumental supporter of NOFMA from the early years, believing strongly in its mission. She co-wrote the one and only NOFMA Flooring Sidematcher manual, which is used in mills across the country today. She worked tirelessly to help support the people who worked for the company and loved them dearly.
A native of Crossett, Beth spent her last 35 years as a resident of Monticello, Arkansas. She graduated from Crossett High School in 1969, UAM in 1973 with a Bachelor of Science in elementary education and had a long career as a teacher in the Monticello School District. She would never be far from a football field as she was a Crossett Eaglet, a UAM cheerleader, a Razorback supporter, and the #1 Billie fan. Beth was a member of First United Methodist Church of Monticello.
She is survived by her husband of 52 years, Tommy Maxwell, daughter and husband, Kristi and Dustin Prince, son, Wilson ”Wil” Maxwell, and her four grandchildren, all of Monticello.
Services for Beth were held January 21, 2024, at First United Methodist Church in Monticello. Memorials may be made to the Billie Foundation Fund, First United Methodist Church, and Hope Place. View Beth’s obituary and send condolences to the family here.
