In Memory of
Maureen Ann Nugent Macygin Garza
-

Maureen passed away on Saturday, January 23, 2021 from complications of the Covid-19 virus.  She was born in New York City where she met her first husband, Val Macygin, in the late 1950’s.  They wed and moved to Bayville, NJ and had three children, Holly, Valerie and Skeeter.  After Val’s death in 1976 Maureen married her second husband, Carter Garza while residing in New Jersey. In 2005, Maureen and Carter moved to Houston, Texas where their son and daughter resided (Skeeter and Maureen).  

Maureen was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother,  great grandmother, aunt, and sister.  She is survived by her daughters, Holly Grimm, Valerie Phillips and Maureen Martinez, her daughter-in-law, Leslee Macygin, her grandchildren, Crissy Thrift, Shawna Macygin, Jeremy Macygin, Keith Phillips, Cassidy Macygin, Jessica Macygin, Jonah Martinez, and Cora Parson, several great grandchildren, several nieces and nephews, and her sister Judith Carola and George Nugent

Maureen was preceded in death by her husbands, Val Macygin and Carter Garza, her son Skeeter Macygin, and brothers and sisters, Pat, Loretta, Jimmy and Bobby.

Maureen and Carter enjoyed a night at the Elks club and were very active in the organization.  They loved Doo-wop, drinks, and dancing.  Maureen was an excellent cook and loved to show off her northern Italian heritage by cooking her famous Italian dishes for her family.  

She was a great mother and would have done anything for her children and grandchildren.  We were blessed to have her as our mother.  She was deeply loved and will be deeply missed.

Heaven gained another Angel. I am so thankful you made a trip to see us a couple months ago, and I know you are sitting next to grandpa watching all of us. We are going to be alright, no matter what. Tell grandpa we said hi and we love him.
