Maggie was an active member of her community and Free Methodist Church in Smiths Falls. She loved and cared deeply and has grown so many close and meaningful relationships with the people who have come into her life. Anyone moved to make a donation on her behalf is encouraged to choose something close to their hearts and homes that they feel Maggie would be happy to be a part of. She was also a big believer in donating time as well.
Due to covid restrictions a Celebration of Life will be held at the Free Methodist Church in Smiths Falls at a later date.
