Margaret “Maggie” Louise Pritchard Darling, born Nov. 19, 1949, to William Thomas and Genevieve Ann (Parsons) Pritchard in New Castle, PA, went to Heaven April 2, 2021 (Good Friday), peacefully surrounded by her loving friend and family. Maggie had three siblings, sister Barbara and husband James Osborn, brother Edward John Pritchard (deceased) and wife Fran Thus, and sister Marien (Pritchard) Himes. Maggie moved to Arizona at the age of 13 and graduated from Phoenix Union High School. She worked for the City of Phoenix for 11 years and retired to pursue the things she loved, including non-stop cruises with her sister, ceramics and crafts with her BFF Thelma, and to spoil her children and grandchildren. She had two loving children, son Benjamen and wife Julia Darling, and daughter Michelle Darling. Maggie was “the best grandma ever” to grandson Marcus and wife Christi Galbaldon, granddaughter Salina Galbaldon, grandson Kaiden Murphy, grandson Brody Darling, granddaughter Brooklynn Darling and great-granddaughter Elena Rose Galbaldon. In addition, she was an admirable aunt to several nieces and nephews. Maggie recently moved to Globe, Ariz., where she was a member of a wonderful prayer group of people; Holy Angels, who were there to love and support her to the end. The family is eternally grateful for their continued prayers.
Celebration of Life for Maggie will be at Lamont Mortuary of Globe, 328 S. Hill St., on May 15 at 2 p.m. Reception will follow at her residence. Please join the family in celebrating the wonderful life led by our Maggie Lou.
