Margaret (Maggie) Lee Foster Jobin

October 20, 1922 – August 10, 2019

If you knew Maggie for fifteen minutes or more, you knew she was a lifelong dancer and a long-time student and teacher of yoga. These were the currents that ran through her life and identity. She was a bright light to all who knew her and could be counted on to break in to dance or song with the slightest encouragement. She was one of a kind and will be so missed by so many.

She met George Jobin, the handsome naval pilot and love of her life, one romantic New Year’s Eve near the beginning of WWII.
