For anyone who knew Maggie, they would agree that she was a ray of sunshine. She brightened a room just by entering it. Her smile was genuine and her laughter was infectious.
She was a master in the kitchen and was famous for her delicious breads and cream puffs which she loved sharing with others.
Small in stature, but a heart as big as the moon…She will be tremendously missed.
