Maggie Louise Brown Hebbard (78) of Harlem, GA entered into rest on April 28, 2020. Maggie was talented, artistic, unique, entertaining, and never met a stranger. She loved soap operas, yard sales, antiques, and Easter egg hunts. She spent her career at Gracewood State School and Hospital from which she retired. Maggie said that when her body finally wears out, her spirit will be flying around as a firefly or a hummingbird (she hadn't decided which yet). She left the following advice: "When you face or approach a task, or walk into a group, let it be known that you have arrived." And that she did.
Maggie was preceded in death by her parents Jim and Bertha Brown, sister Jeannette Broughton, and brothers Joe Byrd and Gordon Byrd. She is survived by her husband of 60 years, Lynn K. Hebbard, sister Linda Kelly (Jackie), brother Jimmy Brown (Diane), daughters Elizabeth Fulcher and Sherry Miller (Donald), son Randy Hebbard (Wendy), and several grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Visitation will be held from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm on Saturday May 2, 2020 at Bellevue Memorial Gardens Chapel. Social distancing guidelines will be followed.
