Maggie was absolutely one of the most beautiful! Remember her from the time working at JPM to recent when she would still come to visit with Lisa on every Christmas Eve with molasses bread for Joe (and have a glass of wine)! Truly one of the best and miss your infectious smile! RIP beautiful lady! Love you!

I will always remember Maggie for many reasons but the one that made me cry was related to the story "Maggie's Bread" written by Lisa. This resulted in the Christmas tradition of me convincing Maggie during their Christmas Eve visit to have a glass of wine before church!

Maggie’s Family, heartfelt sympathy for your loss. Maggie was such an inspiration to be around, her beautiful smile and stories that she always shared made your day a bit brighter. It was a pleasure to have known her. She will surely be missed by all who knew her. Mae Kelly

To the Ivany family. I am so very sorry for your loss. Maggie was a delight. She brightened the lives of all she met and were privileged to know her. She loved her family and friends and made them aware of such. She shall be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time. Connie Burt/David Bollard

Tony, Kathy, Lisa and families: Jackie and I send our heartfelt condolences to you all. Maggie was always dear to us and genuinely excited to see us whenever our paths crossed. I fondly remember moose steaks, darts and the hockey game in your house on Edinburgh. May Maggie rest in peace. Love to all.

Terry and Jackie Goulding
