Evelyn and Kiki said it all for me. I only knew Maggie a few years and I was also fortunate that Beth shared this wonderful woman with me. We spent the 4th of July together and I will always remember her joy at the Judy Collins concert and the way her face lit up watching the 4th of July fireworks. My sympathies go out to everyone who loved her, but especially to Margot Lou who would have had the most loving grandmother in the world!

My most sincere condolences to all of Maggie's family and friends. If everyone lived their lives in the way Maggie lived hers, the world would be a much better place.
Heaven has a VERY special angel that will truly be missed by ALL who LOVED her, which was anyone who ever came in contact with her. Maggie's love was & is contagious.

I was a student in Maggie's 2nd grade classroom during what I believe was her first year of teaching. We recently reconnected and I have so enjoyed our communication. One specific memory I have of Maggie all those years ago is her wearing a mini skirt and she had long finger nails. The Beatles' song, "Let It Be" was playing and she was playing "air piano" along with the organ solo in the middle of the song. To this day, I think of her every time I hear "Let It Be".

I wish all of Maggie's friends and family peace and light at this sad time. I know her light will continue to shine through all of those whose lives she touched and especially through her beautiful new grand daughter!

Words cannot express the sadness I feel at this time. Maggie was one in a million. She gave to all and brought out the best in everyone. She knew how to enjoy life and showed me what is important in life which is family and friends. I am so fortunate to have had Maggie as my friend these past 9 years. She was always there to listen and give me the best advice. My love to Robbie, Cara, James and Maggie's love of her life her granddaughter Margot. You all have a very special angel watching over you. Love The Migge Family, Bill - Eileen, Billy and Jessica
