. Margarite “Maggie” Ridens went home to be with her heavenly father March 21, 2022. Maggie was born June 20 and raised in Durango, Mexico. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She lived a life of independence, strong will and a heart full of love for Jesus along with her husband Frank and two children Sue Clarke and Howard (Nancy) Johnson. She broke many glass ceilings in her chosen industries as well.
She provided teachable moments to her grandchildren Brent Clarke, Brandie (Robert) Wiedrick, Christine, Ryan, Sarah, Raymond and Jason Johnson. She enjoyed being around the laughter and love of her four great- grandchildren Aiden, Mason, Payton (Wiedrick) and Paisley (Ward-Johnson). She is the trunk of our family tree; may our family's lives be her legacy.
Her life accomplishments included working in the aviation industry for 40 plus years, becoming a U.S. Citizen, and working as a yard supervisor at Simi Elementary School for 20 years.
She is preceded in death by her husband Frank and grandson Brent Clarke. She will be greatly missed by many, but will find comfort knowing she is in the arms of her heavenly father above. In our hearts, soul and Spirit always.
