Margaret Mary Maier née Conway, age 94, died peacefully at her home in Lincolnwood, Illinois on January 5, 2022. She was the wife of Charles W. Maier Jr. (Charlie). They shared 69 wonderful years of marriage together.


Born in Chicago, Illinois, she was the daughter of Philip and Charlotte Conway. She was a graduate of University of Illinois Circle Campus and after graduation, worked for the CTA designing maps for the elevated system in Chicago.


She was an accomplished Fine Artist who exhibited her work over the years at numerous art fairs in the Chicago area and Sonoma County, California.


She is survived by her husband, Charlie, and their 7 children Anthony (Edita), Nicholas (Heather), Charlotte (Louis Rosen), Patrick (Tina), Michael (Kimberly), Charles III (Mary) and Mary (Jesse Wilde); 18 grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren. Margaret was kind and loving to all she met, and she will be dearly missed.

    Every once in awhile, there’s something in the air that takes me back to those wonderful days when I lived next door to Charlie and Margaret Maier. The sweet smell of some delicious treat Margaret was preparing in her kitchen, the crystal clear sound of Charlie whistling some tune as he puttered around his yard, or looking up to see their sweet dog Punkie watching everything going on below as he guarded from the 2nd floor flat roof.
    When my own kids started approaching the teen years, I recall asking Margaret “How did you manage to survive all these times with your kids?” Her simple, honest answer – “I prayed constantly”.
    How I miss the innocence and purity of these memories but am so thankful to hold them in my heart all these years later.
