Obituary for Margaret "Mara" Gaffigan

Margaret “Mara” Gaffigan, 60, died peacefully on Sunday, March 22 at Advantage Living Center due to complications related to emphysema.

Born in Detroit, Michigan, Mara spent most of her life as a resident of Roseville, MI. When she was not busy pursuing her educational and professional goals, she reinforced her love of bicycling by participating in charity bike rides. The two rides she most enjoyed were the MS 150 and the Blue Water Ramble.
Mara was known by her friends and family as a kind-hearted person drawn to children and animals in need. She made a difference in the lives of many and leaves a void that will be difficult to fill.

Mara leaves behind her son, Jake Russell; her mother, Mary Gaffigan; her 5 sisters, Carolyn Gaffigan, Rosalyn Morris, Gwendolyn Shaffer, Madeline Gaffigan, and Wendy Jouad; and her 2 brothers, Brian Gaffigan and David Gaffigan. She also leaves behind six nieces, six nephews, seven great nieces and four great nephews.

Mara now Rests in Peace with her daughter, Claressa Russell, and her father, John Gaffigan

A memorial service is being planned for a date yet to be determined.
