She was one of the founders of the Shawano Women’s Club, an organizing regent of the Wausau Daughters of the American Revolution Chapter and was active in the First Presbyterian Church of Shawano. She is buried at Woodlawn Cemetery in Shawano, WI.

Grandma and Grandpa Magee lived two doors from us in Wausau. I was only six years old when she died. She suffered from heart disease and was bedridden for a few years. I recall sitting on her bed in their home while Grandma read to me – hours on end. She also sang many hymns. These old favorite hymns still are with me today. I have always felt close to her. I think that my mother and Grandma Magee were very close and I learned a lot about Grandma Magee from my mother as I grew up. My mother and her mother traveled a great deal, including places like Washington, D.C., Arkansas, Texas, Yellowstone Park, the Grand Canyon and California when my mother was growing up.
