Margaret Thackaberry Obituary
September 28, 2017 Maggie, 89, passed away peacefully on September 28th, 2017 after a brief illness. A native of Los Angeles and a school teacher by trade after graduating from USC, Maggie soon married John Thackaberry and together they raised three children in Sherman Oaks. Following her divorce in 1987, she soon embarked on a remarkable journey for the second half of her life. Meeting her next 'Love' shortly thereafter and taking a position with USC Trojan Travel, Maggie traveled throughout the world and created many lasting memories and friendships. Maggie was doing what she loved!! She also had many great adventures with her companion of 29 years, John Wachtler. Many day and weekend trips were the suggestions by their favorite travel agent, Huell Howser. Her 89 years were animated by her positive attitude, sense of humor, infectious laugh and beautiful smile. Predeceased by her son Mark, Maggie is survived by daughter Lisa, son Jeff, grandson Ian, sister Doryce McCutchan; her children Tom and Katie and their spouses and children, in addition to nieces Diana and Wendy, and nephew Eric. In keeping with her wishes, a private celebration of life will take place at the end of the month.
