Dear Buffington Family,
I’m so sorry to hear about Maggie. I was her upstairs neighbor for a couple of years and really treasured our friendship. I had not reached out to her in awhile, too long. That will always bother me. We shared many moments of laughter and stories. Her strength and determination will continue to inspire me.
I am so sorry to hear about Maggie. I first worked with her as a young nurse on the surgical floor at St. Francis. She was always so kind and helpful. Then many years later she befriended my Mom, Kay Crusen through Senior Saints at OSF. My mom had worked at St. Francis in the 1940s. She would pick my mom up and drive her to the Senior Saints luncheons. Once again she was so kind to my mom. She even kept in contact with mom after she had moved up to Westmont. She would write mom letters and cards( which mom loved!)
Please accept my heartfelt condolences. Maggie was a great nurse and a great friend to many.
