MaggieOur beloved Maggie (Magdalena Viveen) has left the stage for one last time. Maggie was living at the Seaforth Long Term Care Home and passed on April 12, 2019 at age 93. She was such a bright light and such an inspiration to all of us in the K-W Silver Stars. From her first audition to her last big performance with us in 2017, Maggie bubbled with love and enthusiasm. Maggie sang. She tap danced. She acted. A triple threat as they say in show business. Maggie was always full of sequins, sparkles and smiles. Beginning in Europe as a child, she continued to entertain folks all her life. She won many awards, in Hamilton and elsewhere. Our audiences were amazed to see a lady over 90 tap dancing and enjoying her life to the full. Even a stroke did not prevent her from aiming for a spot on the stage.  Before she left us, her voice and legs came partially back – a tribute to her determination to overcome any obstacles. That’s why Maggie was such an inspiration to us all.  She embraced the positive and always looked to the bright side of things. Now, Maggie is dancing with the angels. And we will all miss her very much.
