I am sorry to learn of Maggies passing, always enjoyed my visits with her when I was spending my summers in Otto. She was a nice person and will be missed by many.

Thoughts and prayers to all family and friends of Maggie. Her and Leland are among our most favorite memories of the years we lived in Cattaraugus. God gives us strength. They are once again reunited.
