My deepest thoughts are with all of the family and friends. I am an MCC retiree, and know Maggie did a fantastic job there. Coincidentally, I met her again at North Kansas City Hospital's heart rehab gym where we went 3 times a week and we got on really well. Maggie was the sort of person who although you had just met her, you felt you had known her years. She was a joy to converse with. I can only end by asking us all to 'remember the good times.' Nobody can take those away.

Maggie was beyond wonderful! I really enjoyed her visits at our office. I am a hugger...and she was a hugger! Always smiling and making others smile. There was never a doubt how important Charlie and her children were to her. What a special person she was, and what a blessing to have known her in my lifetime! Rest in peace, beautiful woman!

Maggie and Mel spent a lot of time with us when they lived in Arlington. Maggie was my best friend for many years. We had a lot of fun and laughter together until she and Charlie moved away😢 Unfortunately I never saw her again after that! She was a very special lady and she will be missed by all who ever shared life with her! Love and peace Maggie, until we meet again!❤️

Oh Maggie - I had no idea you were sick until you were gone - maybe you wanted it that way. I always had so much fun working with you - you made me feel so good about myself and you always had happy things to share. You truly were a light to this world and one that will be missed. I hope you and Melissa are having the reunion of a lifetime right now!
