Margaret Myrtle Nees


1928 - 2015 Obituary Condolences
October 31, 1928 - June 8, 2015 Marget (Maggie) passed away peacefully at 86 years of age. She was predeceased by her husband Oliver R. Nees Jr. She is survived by her children, Daryl Lynn (Joe), Robert Oliver (Elizabeth), Kelly Nees Zempel (Randall), Paige Ann; grandchildren Christina Marie and Jonathon August Zempel; her dog, Dolly and cat, Bonny mourn her. Maggie was born in Kellogg Idaho to Otto and Dorothy Huefner. She was raised in Spokane WA and moved to Los Angeles at 15. Maggie graduated from Hamilton High school and then attended the Los Angeles County School of Nursing, graduating in 1950. She went on to meet the love of her life at a County related party (quite dashing in white pants!) in 1953. They were married in November of 1953. Maggie was very active in her children's lives. Besides attending multiple drama and music performances for each child she was a taxi driver extraordinaire! She was active in the Assistance League for many years. Maggie loved her books and diet cokes. One of her greatest joys was hosting her annual Nursing class reunions with her esteemed colleagues. Her 60th class reunion was a wonderful gala! After Oliver passed away she forged new friendships and enjoyed them fully. The family wishes to thank with all our hearts mom's special caregivers: Marleny, Keasi, Nancy, Juanita, Deorah, Lua, and Tanya. Without them we would have been lost. Many thanks to mom's friends at Fantastic cafe and Ruby's for treating her like family. Services are private. A celebration of Life will be held at the family home 11-2 pm June 20. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Long Beach Community Hospital or favorite Charity.
