Obituary

Obituary for Maggie Callahan

Mary Margaret Callahan (Maggie), born March 21, 1955 in Bethesda, Maryland, died on October 3, 2020 at Doey’s House (Hospice of Washington County, Maryland), due to complications with cancer.

Maggie was the youngest child born to John Warren and Ellen Callahan. She grew up in Bethesda with two sisters (Kate and Ellie) and a brother (John Michael). Maggie was born with a sweet and gentle nature but was able to hold her own against her rambunctious older siblings. The siblings enjoyed each other’s company and spent time in their younger days, along with neighborhood friends, wading in nearby Rock Creek and sledding down the steep hill in the back of their home.

Maggie attended Holy Redeemer Elementary School in Kensington, MD and graduated from the Academy of Holy Cross High School in 1973. During her elementary and high school years, she began making life-long friends. After attending the University of Maryland for a year, she moved to Frederick and then to Hagerstown, Maryland.

Maggie worked full and part-time in various aspects of the food and bar industry. Her most recent jobs were with Martin’s Food and Williamsport Redmen Tribe #84. She was loved by both her colleagues and customers.

While working for Next Dimensions in Hagerstown, she met her best friend and the love of her life, John Parrish. They were together since 2010.

She was a devoted mother to her treasured daughter, Emily.

Community Service was one of Maggie’s core values. While living in Frederick, she volunteered for the Frederick Noon Sertoma Club to benefit the hearing-impaired. She participated in fundraising events for the organization at the Great Frederick Duck Race, the Keys game peanut stand, and the Beer Garden at Baker Park. She was also a member of the Elks Lodge and Owls Club. Maggie continued her community service when she moved to Hagerstown by joining the American Legion. She received awards for her volunteer work from both Sertoma and the American Legion.

Maggie supported her sisters by frequently accompanying them on the annual Komen Breast Cancer Foundation 5K-walk “Race for the Cure” in Washington DC. She often donated blood to the American Red Cross.

Maggie had many talents. She had an extraordinary gift for making friends and keeping them for life. She decorated cakes and played in American Poolplayers Association tournaments for Starlite Inn, Captain Benders Tavern, and Pete’s Tavern. She was a fine cook and enjoyed transforming discarded items into beautiful home décor. When attending Halloween parties, she would fashion costumes so elaborate that she became unrecognizable.
She loved to camp and go to the beach with her friends and family, especially Rehoboth Beach, DE. It was fitting that she went to the Lord on a beautiful fall day, as fall was her favorite season. She had a gorgeous smile, lovely curls, and a lively sense of humor. She loved her dog, Cooper, who visited her at Doey’s House.

Maggie is survived by her daughter, Emily Gibson and son-in-law, D’Andre Gibson, by John Parrish, her life partner, and by Ellen (Ellie) Callahan, her sister. She is predeceased by her mother and father, Ellen and John Warren Callahan, her sister Catherine (Kate) Donvito, and her brother John Michael Callahan.

A Memorial Service will take place at the Harman Funeral Home, P.A., 305 N. Potomac St, Hagerstown, MD, on Saturday, October 10, 2020. The family will welcome visits by family and friends from 1:00-2:00 PM. The Memorial Service, officiated by Rev. Fr. Steven L. McCarty, will begin at 2:00 PM.
