PRESCOTT, Ariz. — Margaret Ann Marie Durbin, 62, died unexpectedly at her home in Prescott, Ariz., on Aug. 24, 2011.

She was a registered nurse, employed with Prescott Valley Good Samaritan nursing home. Margaret (Maggie) was born on Dec. 25, 1948, in Danville. She moved to Prescott in 1978 where she lived for 33 years.

She is survived by her two children, Leah (Lance) Fine and Nathan (Jennifer) Masse; four grandchildren, Reed and Devan Fine and Rylan and Vann Masse; three brothers, Robert Durbin of Danville, Charles Durbin of Fountain, Colo., Paul Durbin of Mount Vernon; and four sisters, Mary Jo Oberfield of Newark, Helen Miller of Mansfield, Kay Durbin of Nashville, Tenn., and Donna Brust of Castle Rock, Colo.

She was preceded in death by two brothers, Walter Durbin and Douglas Durbin.

Maggie spent much of her free time doing outdoor activities, cooking, and watching movies, but her greatest passion was her family especially her grandchildren. She will be remembered for her love of life and devotion to others. She will be greatly missed by those fortunate enough to be touched by her.

A memorial service to celebrate her life was held Sept. 3 in Prescott. In lieu of flowers family asked that donations be made to The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society, 3380 N. Windsong Drive, Prescott Valley, AZ 86314.
