Maggie was born in Tuscaloosa, AL to Virginia Hunt and Willie Miller. She was one of two children. She graduated high school from Tuscaloosa Industrial High School in 1951. She moved to Oklahoma City, OK in 1953.
In adulthood, Maggie gave birth to two children, Aquilla Ann (Miller) Pugh and Curtis Stafford. She was blessed to work for two families, the Monnet and Cunningham families most of her adult life until she retired.
Outside of work, Maggie loved to bake for others, and to be a source of encouragement to others. Maggie was also actively involved in her church and served in several roles to include being a teacher, singing in the choir, and in the role of the first female trustee at Emmanuel Baptist Church. She was known for working on her garden and the garden at her church, listening to her Walkman, and walking the streets of the city. She was known in the community for her homemade banana bread and for small poems that brought encouragement and hope!
Maggie also had a close group of friends that she enjoyed spending time with through her church. They continued to do life together throughout their years. She also poured her time into her grandchildren, and was an ever present force in their lives, encouraging them to adhere to faith, good grammar and hard work. Those that know her have also benefited from her love for pictures, as she has chronicled our lives and the historical events in her own. We will forever cherish the memories she has created.
