Her greatest pride and joy were her children and grandchildren. She was "Grandma Maggie" to many children and a mother figure to many. She was very proud of her Irish heritage and was deeply devoted to her parish family, her faith in God, and helping those in need.

Maggie was granted her wish of having a living wake with the many family and friends who visited her at home throughout the past few weeks.

In Lieu of flowers, please give your time to the less fortunate and visit the sick and lonely in our hospitals and nursing homes. This is the greatest gift you can give in Maggie's memory.

Special thanks to the ThedaCare at Home Hospice team and to all of the doctors and nurses who assisted us throughout this time.

Until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.

To all of my children and grandchildren…I Love You. GRANDMA, WE LOVE YOU MORE.
