Susanna Leigh Higginbotham Maximoff

On January 31, 1947, Susanna “Susi” Leigh Higginbotham Maximoff graced us with her presence. She was a one of a kind character and a woman of “many hats.” She spent time traveling through Europe as a teenager while attending boarding school in Switzerland, where she learned to speak German fluently.
Susi was a daddy’s girl while growing up and later became an amazing mother to four children. She loved traveling, especially after meeting her husband Nick Maximoff, who took her with him to Federal Highway job sites around the west coast until he retired and moved her back home to Kanab to be near her family and friends.
Susi returned to our lord in heaven at age 77 on Saturday, March 9, 2024, where she was greeted by her mother, father, sister and other relatives. Susi is survived and will be missed dearly by her husband of 30 years, Nicolas Boris Maximoff; her four children: David Kyle Ainge, Heidi Marie Ainge, Myron Leonne Ainge and Amy Leigh Bryant; along with 15 grandchildren, one great granddaughter and 25 beautiful hats.

A funeral service will be held Saturday, March 16, 2024 at 3:00 PM in the Kanab Kaibab Stake Center. A viewing will be held at the Stake Center from 2:00-3:00 PM. Burial will be in the Kanab Cemetery. Services were arranged with Mosdell Mortuary.
