Magnolia "Maggie" Buck Cannon, 100, of Broad Creek, passed away peacefully at home September 6, 2021, just two weeks after her 100th Birthday.
Magnolia "Maggie" Buck Cannon was born on August 23, 1921, in Morehead City to Carl Vernon Buck and Effie Adams Buck. She had four siblings, Verona Hall, Alma Wilton, Olive Cartright, and Daniel Buck.
Maggie met her husband Fred Cannon when they were young while working on the farm together. They married on June 19, 1937, and had four children, Vernon Earl Cannon, Leon Harris "Nuggiet" Cannon, Barbara Cannon Stewart, and Fred Cannon Jr. They also had many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren.
Maggie worked in labor and delivery at the old hospital in downtown Morehead, as well as Carteret General Hospital until the late 70’s. She continued to do private nursing until she was 75 years old which was a job she really enjoyed. She was also a breast cancer survivor for over 50 years.
Due to COVID and her wishes we will not be having a service.
