She served as a secretary for Cherry Grove Christian Church for several years and later joined the Friendship UMC where she dedicated her life to Christ. As a faithful servant, she served on the usher board and held the role as the church historian; she enjoyed attending church and bible study. Mother Maggie had a long time passion for helping every child she could and participating in Camp Wildwood Summer Day Camp. She served as a member for GladTidings#48 for many years. She was a skilled serial entrepreneur, always just a call away, a mother to many, a shoulder to all, and had a way of making anything happen for anybody in need.
