Maggie had a very loving personality; she enjoyed being with her family, especially on holidays. She enjoyed singing Christian music with her husband and sitting outside to enjoy the fresh air. Maggie adored her daughter Jessica and never went a day without talking to her, she loved her son in law Joe and always made sure he was doing well. Her greatest treasures in life were when her grandson Chris was born and six years later when her granddaughter Hailee “sissy girl” was born. She adored her grandkids and loved them with lots of hugs and kisses.
She loved going to “work” as she called it –BINGO, she loved doing word search puzzles, watching the 700 Club, and participating spiritually in daily mass.
