Maggie passed away in her Cottage Grove home on Jan. 13 due to complications from a stroke.
She was born in Herreid, S.D. to Rudolph and Emilia Reimer.
The family relocated to Toppenish, Wash. when she was three. She lived there until she met and married Edward “Bud” Pardee. They were married 65 years.
Together they had four children: Deniva Jones of Cordova, Alaska, Linda O’Brien of Anchorage, Alaska, Sue Hansen of Creswell and Ray Pardee of Cottage Grove. She had six grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren.
She retired from the Coos Bay Red Lion as a prep cook of 20 years.
She spent countless hours in her yard tending to her beautiful flowers. She took great pleasure in gardening, and especially loved the fresh cucumbers and tomatoes.
She was preceded in death by daughters, Deniva and Linda.
Remembrances may be sent to Edward Pardee at 314 S. 13th St., Cottage Grove, OR 97426.
A family memorial service will be held at a later date.
