The RNLI saves lives at sea.

Maggie Way

Margaret Jean Manners (Maggie) was born on December 6th 1939 in Guildford. She was the only child of Richard and Chrissie Manners. She excelled at netball in school and she qualified as a nursery nurse. In later years she worked in the catering trade and as a health care assistant at the local hospital.
Maggie was very family- orientated and had a large family of her own: John, Angela, David, Lynne, Christopher and Rebecca from her two marriages to Roy Gittings and Les Way.
She had a love of animals and always had cats and dogs wherever she lived.
Maggie was a very sociable lady and had many friends and acquaintances. Friends were important to her and a friend of Maggie's was a friend for life.
A series of health problems developed over the last few years of her life and Maggie underwent several operations and endured many hospital stays during this time.
In 2007 Maggie, already a proud Nan to Kirsty, Cameron, Craig, Louise, Natasha, Rosie, Jack, Katie, Harriet, Zach, Callum and Liam, became a great-grandmother to Luisa.
Life took its toll on Maggie and she passed away on December 2nd 2007 at Worthing hospital just four days before her 68th birthday.
Maggie was a wonderful wife, mum, nanny and friend and she is missed greatly by all who knew her.
