She then went on to attend nursing school at Hartford Hospital in Hartford, Conn. Maggie also owned and operated several businesses throughout her life including pet shops, a painting and wallpapering business, and, for the last 14 years, had run Maggie's Taxi in Laconia.
Maggie loved watching sports and was a lifelong Red Sox fan. She also loved the ocean, especially trips to York Beach.
Maggie survived by her four children, Craig Barkal of Belmont, Kimberly Gentile and her husband, Joe, of Laconia, Michael Noonan of Laconia and David Noonan of Laconia. Maggie also has two beautiful granddaughters, Jillian Gentile of Laconia and Hayleigh Willette of Gilford.
She will also be missed by her many loyal customers who have gotten to know Maggie over the years, by many of her family friends and by her cat, 'Mr. Big."
Per Maggie's request, there will be no calling hours. There will be a graveside service for family and friends at Bayside Cemetery at a later date.
