Margaret Kennedy McDonagh
April 21, 1934 - January 28, 2017
Margaret Kennedy McDonagh died peacefully on January 28, 2017. Her husband, Bob McDonagh, was by her side.
Marge was the mother of six (Mark, Anne, Julie, Matt, Marie, and Michael). She was known as Grandma Maggie to 15 grandkids and 4 great grandchildren. Her spirit lives in all of us.
She was born to Tom and Cecilia Kennedy in Butte, Montana and was raised in California. She met Bob while attending nursing school. They married in 1955.
They moved their family to Caldwell in 1965 to escape the "California rat race." Margie was a dear friend to many in the Caldwell community.
She worked as an RN at Caldwell Memorial Hospital and for several doctors. She was Bob's tireless supporter and champion when he struck out as an entrepreneur and created I.D.E.A. Inc.
The couple built a new home in Boise for their "retirement." A few years later they moved to Hayward, California after Bob acquired another business. They moved KNG to Nampa and donated land near the business to build McDonagh Park.
A celebration of life is planned for family on February 11.
