Maggie loved to play The Sims when not making her angel baby dolls and her doll clothes. She always loved to sing karaoke. Her favorite day was April Fool’s Day, as she loves pulling pranks. Maggie had a cat name Sylvester who she always called her crazy cat because he would climb the walls, curtains and doorways. She also completed cosmetology school and loved doing other people’s hair.
Maggie’s life was always filled with adventures. She loved to move around and see different places in the US and even lived in Alaska for a while. She had an infatuation with haunted houses and loved scary movies. She was definitely a free spirit. She had a strong faith in Jesus Christ as her savior, and she shared that faith and encouraged others whenever she could.
Her two daughters’ favorite memory of their mom was when they were living on the Toutle River in a trailer by Mount St. Helens. They didn’t have much growing up, but they were all together and happy.
One of her son’s favorite memories of his mom was that “she never gave up on us.”
Maggie will be greatly missed by all who came into her life and will be forever in their hearts.
Rest in peace.
