Marilyn Maxwell

Marilyn Maxwell is pictured with one of her entries in the Fayette County Free Fair floral judging. It’s a gladiolus that she grew. Now 91 years old, she’s been showing at the fair since she was in 4H as a child.

Like many other adults who annually display their work at the Fayette County Free Fair, Marilyn Maxwell started as a child in 4H.

For her, that’s about eight decades ago. The 91-year-old won ribbons again this year for flowers that she grew in her garden.
