As a young women she worked at The School for the Blind in Halifax. After which she married and cared for her husband and two sons. Then returned back to the workforce at the Sears Department Store. In her later years she worked at the Middle Musquodoboit Memorial Hospital assisting the adult day program. Caring for others was always a huge part of Maggie's character. She spent a great deal of her time nurturing her grandchildren. She was a member of the Upper Stewiacke Church through choir and Bible studies and was an avid reader who loved to write poetry, draw and paint. Maggie enjoyed snowmobiling, swimming and especially the ocean where she spent many summers with her family at Heather's Beach. A soul so true and full of kindness - an angel on earth.
