Obituary for Maggie Recar

Peoria- Margaret J. “Maggie” Recar, age 57, passed away on Thursday, November 28, 2019 at OSF St. Francis Medical Center.
Maggie was born May 14, 1962 in Peoria, a daughter of John J. Thompson and Betty A. Thompson (Ethington). She married the love of her life, Stephen Recar on November 21, 1980. He survives.

She leaves behind their children Melissa (Aaron) Garske, Stephen (Mercedes) Recar, and Stephanie (Andrew) Elliott; two grandchildren, Ariana and Stephen; seven brothers, John, Mike, Dennis, Gary, Jerry, Terry, and Frank; three sisters, Debbie, Mary and Cindy; several brothers and sisters-in law; and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents; three brothers, Eddie, Joey and Pat; and one sister, Becky.

She spent 41 years with her husband Steve who spoiled her and loved her more than anything. Her greatest accomplishment was her family. She loved being a mother, fishing, roller skating, spending time with her family, and being a grandma to Ariana and Stephen. Her uplifting spirit and infectious laugh brought so much joy to everyone who knew her.

A visitation will be from 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM on Tuesday, December 3, 2019 at Wright & Salmon Mortuary. A Funeral Mass will be at 11:00 AM on Wednesday, December 4, 2019 at St. Bernard Catholic Church with a one hour prior visitation. Fr. Alexander Millar will officiate and burial will follow at Swan Lake Memory Gardens.
