Maggie was born on August 25, 1966 to Sonja (Joe -deceased) Aguilar and Lewis Larson in Lancaster, CA.
Maggie and Kenny married on July 14, 2018, uniting their two beautiful families. Her true joy came from her children; Crystal Bocanegra (Robert), Wayne Croasdale (Emily), Christina McLean, Roland McLean, Luke McLean and Nicholas, Ethan and Derek Arndt. While her devotion and strength presented uniquely for each of them, they all knew her loyalty and dedicated love. It was clear she would move mountains for them, or wear a rhinestone belt and serve tables when she needed to.
Maggie’s siblings included Jamie DePauw-Hazelton, Tom Larson, William Larson (deceased), Carlos Larson, and Dennis Larson, David Larson, Debbie Larson and Ronnie Larson (deceased).
Maggie was a natural athlete herself but took even more joy from cheering on her children and most recently, her grandchildren Evan and Emitt Bocanegra, in all of their sporting endeavors. A standout in any community, she took the title of Miss Lancaster in 1983. From her natural shine to her larger-than life personality, bigger than any billboard or two. But that wasn’t what was most memorable about Maggie. It was her ability to see the light in others that truly made her special, and how she encouraged them to see the beauty in themselves.
Maggie lived with grace, with strength, and with such astonishing beauty. But most notably she lived with exceptional generosity, which was evident in everything from her dinner parties full of laughter, exquisite food, friendship and sparkling table settings, to her charitable work. Once diagnosed with cancer, Maggie made it her mission to spread God’s messages and love, accepting that He would use her for His purpose. She became a board member of the Eastern Sierra Cancer Alliance, using her talents to take their social media reach to new levels.
Maggie’s achievements extended from her family and personal life, to her professional one. In the last decade she grew her property management company to be the second largest in the Eastern Sierra, while simultaneously becoming one of the top producing Realtors in the area. Her determination to keep living her life to the fullest despite her illness was apparent as she became the top producing agent for her employing brokerage, NextHome Mammoth Lakes, with just over 30 homes sold and $20 million in real estate sales this year alone. Only Maggie could outperform the majority of her competition while navigating treatments and hospitals. She never hesitated to put in the extra work needed to achieve a superior level of success. And nobody ever told Maggie when it was time to go to bed! Her ability to give her all to both work and family was yet another example of the true renaissance woman that she was!
A True Celebration of Life will be held May 7, 2022. Attendees are asked to wear white and sparkle, as we know she will be sparkling right along with us.
Although she loved flowers, Maggie asked that donations be made to the Eastern Sierra Cancer Alliance instead, PO Box 1523, Bishop, CA 93515, to continue caring for her community in her memory
