MARGUERITE "MAGGIE" L. FORTIER LAW Kennewick resident, Maggie Law, passed away on January 17, 2017 at the age of 92. She was born on August 19, 1924, to Godfrey L. and Aldia "Babe" L. Beargeon Fortier (Peterson) in Reedley, CA. She attended Garfield Elementary in Selma, CA, and St. Therese School in Fresno. She was a 1942 graduate of Fresno High School. She married Lawrence B. Law on February 26, 1945 in Vallejo, CA. Maggie and her mom worked as welders during WWII to support the war effort. She was a life-long homemaker, raising 3 children, Loraine, Larry, and Jon, and provided home support during her husband's many military deployments and travel for his civilian career. She loved watching the many hummingbirds that came to their home and had a great love of animals, especially dogs. She could carry on a conversation with anyone she met. Most of her life, when the family wasn't moving for military assignments, was spent in California, mainly the Fresno area as a young girl, then Los Serranos (Chino Hills), later moving to Oakhurst after Larry's retirement. She and Larry moved to Charbonneau Independent Living in Kennewick, WA, in 2013 to be near family and extended family. They would have celebrated their 72nd anniversary this year. She was preceded in death by her parents and by her brother, Roy Fortier, Fresno, CA. Maggie is survived by her husband, Larry, of Kennewick, WA, her sons and daughters-in-law, Jon and Pat Law of Richland, WA, Larry and Carol Law of Chino Hills, CA, and her daughter and son-in-law, Loraine and Rod Davis of Sonoma, CA, her sister, Yvonne Garlock of Fresno, CA, and 8 grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren. In honor of Maggie's wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no memorial service. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, a donation to your favorite animal rescue is something that would have meant a great deal to her.
