Maggie was the sweetest lady. When we lived a few houses down from her she welcomed us with zucchini bread and was always smiling. I will miss seeing her every week when she'd come pick up her newspaper. She was a great woman!

Aunt Maggie you have been a God Sent Gift to me.  You have been in my life the day I was born and my years as a kid growing up in Hobart, Oklahoma.  As an adult I gained so much wisdom from you and because of this wisdom; the choices I have made , has made all the differences in how I have lived my life for 67 years on this earth. I Love You Dearly Aunt Maggie.  Vicki Jayne

Aunt Maggie you are so loved in NJ! I started writing you letters when I was a little girl and have loved being pen pals for a lifetime! You always sent me homemade fudge and peanut brittle when I was away at college in PA and the kids in the dorm loved it! My summers spent in Hobart always included fun at the pools and runs to Pizza Hut which was not on the East Coast. I remember you sent me a pack of a "new" candy called Pop Rocks. When I told you that my friends and I loved them, an ENTIRE CASE was soon sent to me! I have endless WONDERFUL MEMORIES OF YOU AUNT MAGGIE. I am so blessed to have had you in my life. Since I will not receive letters from you anymore, will you please be my Guardian Angel from heaven? I love you...

Aunt Maggie,
I am so blessed to have known you. You were a terrific person with a heart of gold. Always having a smile on your face and a kind word. We enjoyed your visits to NJ so much. And I will never forget our trip out to Oklahoma (my first). You showed us things that we never would have seen here. You were a very special person Aunt Maggie, who will be missed so much. Be at peace Aunt Maggie. Love Bob

Miss Maggie, thanks for your example of a servant heart. You did so many little things that made a big difference. You made sure attendance cards were in the pews and that children had small sheets of paper on which to write with sharpened pencils each Sunday morning. All the gifts of bread, cookies & smiles. Our hearts go out to your loved ones & your church family in Hobart. We will miss you when we come later this year, but we're looking forward to the family reunion we'll share in heaven one day. Until then, we're thankful for all of the things we have learned from you. Thank you for your life well lived in service to God.
