Maggie was born and raised in Gratis and lived most of her life in Walton County. She lived in Monroe for the past 35 years. She often visited Danny’s family in California, most recently for Caiti and Ryan’s wedding in April of 2019. She and Sammy were members of Calvary Baptist Church and were active until health issues limited them.

Her love of family knew no bounds and she will be greatly missed by all whose lives she touched.
