Martinsville, Indiana – Virginia Maye Kleine passed away while being comforted by her family and friends at home on December 6, 2023. She was 79 years old.

Maye was born on November 27, 1944, to Isaac and Lois (Ponders) Lillard in Jasper, Georgia. One of 14 children, Maye grew up surrounded by the love of her family and brought that with her to Indiana, where she met the greatest love of her life, Sandy Kleine, and remained together until his passing in January of 2015.

Together they loved to travel and were members of the Greenfield Conservation Club, Hancock County Snowmobile Snow Roamer’s Club, and she was a longtime member of The Ladies of the Lakes. She and Sandy could be found across the United States, camping or boating.
