    Maggie was a cherished family friend for decades, as well as a spiritual touchstone and guidepost. Her loss is still keenly felt and she is very sorely missed. May her memory be a blessing.

    I met Sister Maggie 25 or more years ago in St. Louis. We worked together on a number of projects. We were both deeply involved in issues about Central America, especially Nicaragua. She was a dear friend and I shall miss her tremendously.

  4. Sister Imelda Maurer

    I first knew Maggie when she was in NAWR leadership back in the 1970s. I loved her and admired her. In addition to her heart of service, she had class and pizzaz. A gift to all of us.

    Maggie also was Program Coordinator of the St Louis Inter-Faith Committee on Latin America from 1987-1994.
    She was a valiant advocate for social justice and human rights. It is appropriate that she left us on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

    • Marie-Therese "Tess" Browne

      Yes,Maggie was a drum major for justice. When she could no longer march,she spent the last 8 years in constant prayer for President Barack Obama. So fitting that our Creator called home this faithful servant on Dr Martin Luther King Jr’s Day.
      !Adelante compañera!
