She was born December 28, 2000 in Sandusky and was a sophomore at Norwalk High School. Margaret, also known as Maggie had so many beautiful attributes, too many to list, but here are a few; free spirit, stylish dresser “her own style”, dance to her own tune, artistic, quirky, vivacious, compassionate, faithful, loyal, funny, mature beyond her years, intense, encourager, lover of kitties and hard worker.
Margaret wanted to be in the high school band, but did not play an instrument, so she became a band groupie. She was on the swim team her freshman year and was planning on being part of the team this year as well. Maggie also hoped to be in the school play this year. She was a member of the choir and had a sweet singing voice. She had a heart for art, drama and music.
Maggie was adamant about going to college when she graduated. She worked a summer job at Plum Brook Country Club and put away every dollar for her future.
She is survived by her parents, Carl and Angela Swanbeck; her sister, Claire at home; her brother, Cameron (Dawn) Hill of Milan; nieces, Evelyn and Meredith; nephew, Vincent; maternal grandparents, Vern and Kathleen Kennedy; paternal grandparents, Ray and Nora Swanbeck; beloved Aunts, Debbie, Babe and Betsy and Uncle Jimmy.
