Maver was born March 14, 1918, in Monroe Township, Monroe County, Michigan, the daughter of Bert and Eva Mae (Fisher) Nash.
She married Harold William Muth Oct. 23, 1937, at Zion Lutheran Church in Monroe. The Rev. Henry Zapf, pastor of the church, performed the ceremony.
Maver was baptized Oct. 19, 1937, and confirmed April 10, 1938, at Zion Lutheran Church in Monroe.
Maver was a dedicated homemaker. She was a founding member of Faith Lutheran Church in Monroe, a past president of Ladies of Faith, and chairperson of many dinners given at the church. She was also a past member of the Indian Trails Board of Trustees.
