I don't know what made me Google her just now. So sad that she has reached the end of her great adventure. RIP.

I've got tears in my eyes. Maggie was a terrific person!

Thanks for letting us know, Kerren. I was beginning to fear that her time had come, May she rest in peace.

She certainly was.

Her last PM to me was exactly a month before she died, and it was typically generous and encouraging. She said, too, that once having signed the "do not rescuscitate" form, she "felt a deep peace".

RIP Maggie; I miss you.

This has made me sad. I didn't really know Maggie very well, but she was so kind and thoughtful when Louise was ill, and knowing that she, amongst others, was thinking about Louise really helped me at a difficult time. Sleep peacefully, Maggie xx

Very sad to read this.

I loved Maggie's pithy style on here and felt humbled by her courage as she embarked on her "awfully big adventure."

RIP

I was beginning to fear the worst too but didn't think of googling. Well done, Kerren. And RIP Midget indeed, I too was struck by her composure and courage in the face of her "awfully big adventure".

I will do an obit for the next issue of The Old Blue but the copy deadline is just a few days away. Obviously I can pull something together from postings on the forum, but is there anything anyone would particularly like to mention? Or would anyone else care to write it?

I am so sorry to hear of this. Sincere condolences to 'Midget's' family. Too many people dying. Sad.

Condolences to her Family, and all of you who knew her.
I only knew her from this Forum, but she had a great attitude to her problem, which has encouraged others -- including myself !

Thank you for taking on this task Jo. Will it be possible to ensure that Maggie's family receive a copy? I believe that her husband was well aware of her activity on the Forum, and how much we respected her, but I know that I would love to read the obit if I were in his shoes.

I'm sure that would be possible - the CHOBA office must have her address.
