Margaret "Maggie" Marie Gill Chatham

d. March 30, 2024

Pearl River, LA

Margaret "Maggie" Marie Gill Chatham passed away on Saturday, March 30, 2024 after a long battle with illness.

Maggie was born in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota on May 2, 1945, but grew up in Biloxi, Mississippi. As a girl, she enjoyed horseback riding and competing in horse shows, a hobby that she enjoyed doing with her father and sister Susie. She was also a member of the Tallette Social Club and was crowned queen of her ball during her senior year. She graduated from Biloxi High School in 1963.

Maggie was the oldest of three daughters. She had a large extended family in Biloxi and was lucky to be surrounded by them growing up. She also enjoyed visiting her mother's family in Minnesota, where she spent a lot of time during the summer with her cousins.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Charles A. Gill and Marjorie L. Gill; and her husband, Roger Paul Chatham, III.

Maggie is survived by her daughters, Shannon Jones (Arthur) and Margaret Wilder (Chris); her grandchildren, Chris Wilder, Jr. (Kaitlin) and Kori Wilder; and great-grandchildren, Joseph and Daniel Wilder. 

She leaves behind her sisters, Susan McMahen (Michael) and Julie Gibert (Gerard); her nephews, Bill Bailey and Nick Gibert (Rachel); and nieces, Grace Rushing (Joshua) and Alex Gibert.

Special thanks to Phil and Tiffany of Foundation Hospice and Lynette of Home Instead for their wonderful care of her.
