Maggie married Bob Rushford and Don Williams which resulted in 6 children.
She held many jobs over the years, including the Highway Patrol, Rustic Inn, Hoffbrau, Econo-Wash, and Capital Music/Century Gaming. Each one, she worked with her full heart and greatly enjoyed her time spent at the New Life Lutheran Church and was so proud to have been baptized there in 2002.
