Maggie was preceded in death by her husband, Brian Sleght, her mother Margaret Forgione, and her brother Thomas Gonzales.
Maggie was born and raised on Staten Island, New York and graduated from The College of Staten Island in 1993 and became a Registered Nurse. Being a nurse is who Maggie was at her core, she genuinely received joy from helping others. Maggie settled in Villas, New Jersey in 2001, where she touched many lives being a supportive friend to anyone that knew Bill W.
Maggie was a fun spirited soul with a quick whit and a passion for laughter. She loved animals, music, and loved to travel. Recently, her ex-husband and friend, Dr. Richard Rothman, gifted her family a trip to Cancun, Mexico to make some last memories, and for that, her family is eternally thankful.
Maggie was a beautiful person inside and out. Her smile would light up a room. She cared deeply for all those around her, and even strangers she didn't know. Maggie was a kind, and empathetic soul and made an impact on many lives. She will forever be missed. Until we meet again.
