We must regretfully start the New Year with the announcement that Ann Thompson Maguire died Thursday.
In addition to a 52-year marriage to husband Cary Maguire producing three remarkable children (Cary “Camm” McIlwaine Maguire Jr., Melinda Maguire Down and Blainey Maguire Hess), Ann was a well-known philanthropist, former Crystal Charity Ball chair and champion fundraiser.
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, January 5, at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church followed by a reception at Brook Hollow Golf Club. Memorial contributions in Ann’s name may be made at the Maguire Center for Ethics at SMU.
Our most sincere condolences go to her family for their loss and to the numerous people who benefited from her efforts.
