Maggie O’Sullivan

August 12, 1999 - April 20, 2018 Kennett Square, PA | Age 18 Loving Daughter, Granddaughter, Sister, Niece and Friend

Margaret Ann O’Sullivan (August 12, 1999) of Kennett Square, PA, died Friday April 20, 2018 at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC from complications due to a fast moving bacterial infection. Born in Norwalk, CT, she was the daughter of Joseph S. and Cheryl Szabaday O’Sullivan.

Maggie was a ray of sunshine and activist who fought for equality and acceptance for all. She was loved by those who were fortunate enough to know her and will not be forgotten.

Maggie was a proud 2017 graduate of Kennett High School where she was a National Honor Society member, Class Treasurer, Junior Prom Queen, and a participant of the Feminist Club, Marching Band, Swim team, and Softball team, among many other activities. She was about to finish her freshman year at Wake Forest where she was a Dean’s List student and a member of Alpha Delta Pi sorority.

Survivors include her parents, her brother PJ O’Sullivan, a junior at Dartmouth College, her grandmothers, Roberta J. O’Sullivan of Kennett Square and Lina Dolores Mattiello of Mahwah, NJ, two aunts, Jane O’Sullivan of Lome, Togo, West Africa and Sara O’Sullivan of Manhattan, NY, and one uncle, Doug Szabaday of Midland Park, NJ. Maggie is also missed by her extended family, including aunts, uncles, and cousins, as well as her dear friends both at home and at Wake Forest.

We are overwhelmed by the show of support to our family since Maggie’s passing. After careful consideration we have decided to move Maggie’s Life Celebration to a larger venue, which necessitated a change of date.

Guestbook

  1. I remember Maggie when she was a sweet baby and toddler in Rowayton. We were at Five Mile River Nursery School trying to keep an eye on PJ and Sam who were always bouncing all over the place. You had Maggie in your arms while I had Teddy about the same age. I was going through all the old boxes of pictures and paper; art projects with one swipe of paint across them and found your thank you note from PJ’s birthday party with Trent Dimas right before you moved to PA.
    Maggie was a beautiful smiley little spirit. Even as a baby she had a light inside her. I am so sorry. There really are no words. Your in my thoughts and prayers. Betsy Nolan

  2. We would like to thank our family, friends, local community, and the Wake Forest, Dartmouth, and online communities for sharing our grief and being so supportive. We finally received Maggie’s final autopsy results and would like to share them with those who care about our family. Please understand, we are not interested in anyone else’s medical opinion or in fielding questions. We are avoiding the unhealthy “what if/woulda/coulda/shoulda” scenario. Exploring this further, questions, or hearing the “well-meaning” opinions of others will only be a rusty knife to our already shattered hearts. Please respect our wishes and our daughter.

    Maggie’s cause of Death: Sepsis, due to Fusobacterium necrophorum endocarditis.
    Maggie had a rare and aggressive bacteria that spread rapidly through her blood and organs, including her heart valve. The infection resulted in overwhelming sepsis leading to Maggie’s death. She passed away only 30 hours after being seen in the Wake Forest Infirmary where they thought she had a “flu-like virus.” Based on what we’ve learned, we believe there was nothing that could have been done to diagnose her condition. It is incredibly rare; there are no tests. Even if she were in a hospital at the onset of her illness, the tragic outcome would not have changed. It is our understanding that she did not “catch” this bacteria from an external source. It is not an uncommon bacteria, the rarity is that it passed into her bloodstream. With a doctor’s help, we learned from a case study published in 2011 this is so uniques that only 10 other cases were reported worldwide dating back to 1970. [source: Case reports, Fusobacterium necrophorum endocarditis Case report and review of the literature, Jyoti S. Samant, James E. Peacock Jr., Sept. 2010, Diagnostic Microbiology and Infectious Disease 69 (2011) 192 – 195].

    Our number one priority is to heal with Maggie in our hearts and to continue to see our wonderful, beautiful, strong, kind, intelligent, goofy, warm, funny daughter in the world. While we do not want to discuss Maggie’s cause of death, we welcome stories about, dreams with, pictures of, and signs from Maggie. Thank you for your love.

    Love, Cheryl, Joe, & PJ

  6. I still can not believe that this truly has happened. That your beautiful daughter is no longer with you. My heart has been breaking with the news.

  7. Cheryl, Joe, & PJ,
    I am so sorry to hear about Maggie. I had not seen her since she was a curly haired little girl. What I do remember about her was her smile. Cheryl, your mini me no doubt. I remember her personality and those eyes. Having spent some time with her and Sydney & Staci, I remember how cool it was that they were so close in age. Only like a week or so apart. Having read through all the beautiful comments it seems as though that beautiful smile and gorgeous eyes lit up everyone who met her. As a parent you always know how special and what a real walking miracle looks like. It is even more special when the world notices that too. There is that saying that heaven gained and angel and that seems really fitting for Maggie. An angel on earth and now in heaven. May God grace your family and keep Maggie. Only time separates you, until you meet again. 💔

  8. Maggie made everyday better no matter what. Words can not express how truly sorry I am for your family and how much she will be missed. She had such a profound impact on so many people, shining her light and warmth everywhere she went. Maggie’s love and sunshine will continue to be spread by those lucky enough to have met her. All my love, thoughts, and prayers to Maggie’s friends and family. – Dani P.

  10. Cheryl, Joe, & PJ,
    Our Christian faith teaches us that we are on this earth for a short time to serve Him and his people. No doubt, Maggie accomplished that in a short number of years. Maggie enriched the lives of all those she knew. She spread joy to family, friends, and even strangers. She gave away her joy freely and without pretense. Although we do not understand why she left us so soon and the pain is more than you can bear, find peace in knowing that she is now in the arms of our loving Lord. Jesus teaches us that this joy in heaven is like no other. She has reached this reward, one we all strive for throughout our lives. I pray for those Maggie has left behind, as that is where the healing is needed. I pray that we take what we have learned from Maggie and continue to spread the joy and peace she so freely gave to others. Peace!

    Our hearts are heavy at the news of Maggie’s sudden passing. What a beautiful family, what caring, conscientious parents, what a loving big brother, what a beautiful, tall, perky, vibrant, super-smart young woman she was.

  15. As a fellow Chester County Wake Forest parent and alum, I want to express my family’s deepest sympathies to your family. Heaven’s light must be shining brighter — your daughter is a wonderful example of Pro Humanitate. Maggie used her many talents to help others and she made the world a much better place. Praying for you during this sad time.

  18. Joe, Cheryl and PJ,

    I, too, met Mags in CCD. I always loved to hear her input and I quickly realized she was wise beyond her 7 years with a side of funny. My heart aches for you and your family. This world lost a very special person.

    My deepest sympathies,

  21. Joe and Family it such a tragic event that has just occurred. Maggie was a bright and intelligent girl, and I always enjoyed our time working together at the Blue Rocks when she would be there. She was a smart young lady and was always a joy to be around to have a conversation with. She will be sincerely missed by all of those who her brilliant smile touched each and every day. Once again I apologize for your loss my thoughts and prayers are with your family during this difficult time.

  22. Joe, Cheryl, PJ and family,

    There are no words to express my heartfelt sorrow. I know Maggie will continue to touch the lives of those she knew and cherished. She will forever be a part of the KHS family! I offer my families deepest prayers and condolences to you, her friends and loved ones!

    Korri Brown | April 26, 2018 at 12:04 PM
  23. My heart breaks for your family and the loss of your wonderful and beautiful daughter. How incredible it is to have raised someone that touched so many lives in such a short time, truly special. I know that there is little that I can say to ease your pain but I pray for your comfort and peace. God understands our sorrow better than anyone else ever could and he makes it clear that death is an enemy that he will defeat (1 Corinthians 15:26). One day soon he will restore Maggie’s life and the Bible says he longs to do so.(Job 14:14,15) Until that time comes may God keep you in his loving care and strengthen you to cope in all the days ahead.

  31. Dear Joe, Cheryl and PJ,
    Maggie will live forever in the hearts of everyone who had the good fortune to know her. She was a person of boundless grace and purity of heart. During her visit to Clearwater, Eric, Tyler and I got to experience first hand what our daughter Rachel told us about her…that she was a truly good and kind person, filled with joy and gratitude. We will be always thankful for her presence in our daughter’s life. A loyal friend, the time she spent with Rachel here in Clearwater, in Winston-Salem, in Asheville for sightseeing and concerts, in Highlands for Easter…all of these experiences have enriched my daughter’s life because Maggie shared her sense of joy and fun with everyone. While in Clearwater, Maggie shared some stories about her family life, and it was heartwarming to hear her speak of the three of you with pride and love. With sympathy, love and friendship – Barbara, Eric and Tyler Schmitz

    Barbara Schmitz | April 25, 2018 at 3:53 PM
  32. Dear Cheryl, Joe & PJ, extended family and friends of sweet Maggie: We were devastated to hear of Maggie’s passing on Friday night. Jacks was a big admirer of what made Maggie so unique – a wonderful friend to all, kind-hearted, funny, smart and very principled. We are thankful we got to know her quite well over the 2 short days she stayed with us in Tampa over Christmas break. Maggie was just a beautiful person inside and out. Please accept our condolences. In love and friendship Susy, Brian & Jacks Kernohan

    Susy Kernohan | April 25, 2018 at 11:48 AM
  33. Margaret, Maggie, Mags, what is there to say about a person who has brought joy to so many? She made perfect chocolate chip cookies, could get any child to respond to her phenomenal smile and enticing ways. When she was growing up (and tall, really up!) she was always defending her older brother P. J. and checking on him when he had been absent minded about something. With style and grace Maggie packed a lot of life into her eighteen years, the gifts and memories she gave us will never be forgotten!

    Aunt Jane II | April 25, 2018 at 11:47 AM
  34. Joe and family- I want to express my deepest condolences to you. Just know that your family’s faith is your comfort, and be comforted in the knowledge that Maggie is with the Lord in all his glory.

  35. The Polries Family is so sorry to hear of your devastating loss. We remember Maggie as a cute, funny age group swimmer at Greenwoods and were shocked to hear of her passing. We pray for your strength through this most difficult time. Your family will be in our prayers.

  36. In her first official speech for public speaking the fall of her senior year Maggie focused on how she liked to spend her free time and went into detail discussing the people that are most important in her life. She described her brother PJ as her “best friend” and explained that they have been “inseparable” since their trip to the Bahamas when she was in 8th grade. She bragged that her family is very close and that they “all look scarily alike.” When she got to her point about Joe and Cheryl, she proudly stated, “I love my parents a lot and I can genuinely say that I enjoy spending time with them.” She also talked about her friends – her “concert squad” and her “cute girl fam” and all the adventures they liked to take together (including a trip to Delaware dressed as pirates to get five dozen free donuts). From her words and the enthusiasm she had in delivering them, it was obvious Maggie loved life and she loved enjoying it with others. Whether you worked with Maggie in one of the many clubs she was a member of, swam laps or ran the bases with her, sat next to her in class, coached or taught her over the years, grew up with her as a friend or only met her briefly, chances are she made a lasting impact on you. Her bubbly personality, welcoming attitude, bright smile, and optimistic outlook were infectious. At the end of her speech Maggie urged her audience to “reflect on your favorite people and your favorite hobbies and to make sure you enjoy them as much as possible.” Maggie lived her life this way – enjoying everything and everyone as much as possible.

  37. Joe and Cheryl, PJ and O’Sullivan family, my deepest condolences for the loss of your daughter, sister, relative. My heart grieves with yours at such a vibrant and beautiful life gone from this earth way too soon. I didn’t know Maggie but my 4 daughters have attended Kennett Schools and my one daughter graduated along with her while my oldest attended Mr O’s classes. Words can never be enough and I pray that you will find comfort in our community outpouring it’s love and prayers upon you.

  38. Born to parents true of heart
    Into a world soon torn apart
    Her parents moved to Kennett Square
    And Maggie grew to love it there
    Through Greenwood strolled her happy face
    At KHS she loved the pace
    At Kennett High she truly thrived
    And started touching many lives
    She loved to learn and learned to live
    And though many take, Mags would give
    Marching to her brother’s beat
    On softball fields she ran her feet
    To many clubs she added grace
    For all who saw her smiling face
    Received a glimpse of perfect love
    Whose source is from our Lord above
    A shadow lingers in our town
    We grieve a loss as we look down
    Our world has one less smiling face
    But when we look up from this place
    And feel a ray of warm sunlight
    Know Maggie’s smile is just as bright
    Love and sympathies to the O’Sullivans

  40. Maggie is not someone who will ever be forgotten.
    I don’t remember a summer where she wasn’t my friend and everybody else’s too. The of summers playing cards, walking around the pool, and dropping skittles in before meets together are memories I will cherish . Maggie made my life better and I can’t remember a time I wasn’t happy when she was around. I will miss her dearly and my prayers go out to your family.

Please accept our extreme condolences .

  42. I had the privilege of being at the salon where sweet Maggie had her hair done and dressed for prom. I was struck by how calm and respectful she was during the process, but not surprised as she has always been the perfect reflection of the love and support of her remarkable parents. She emerged from the changing room in her stunning red dress, a tasteful and beautiful choice, that had Maggie written all over it. I was overwhelmed to tears at seeing this lovely young woman I had known since kindergarten. When I complimented her she very humbly said “thank you”, beaming that memorable smile. Maggie was so special and kind. She will be greatly missed by so many……….

    Tamatha | April 24, 2018 at 11:56 AM
  43. Maggie was an incredible person, even though I only got to know her when we were kids. We used to go back and forth from swim team to softball together. I never saw her without a smile on her face. She truly shined a light in my life as a little girl and I feel blessed to have known her. I am praying for your family.

  44. So very sorry for your loss. Our four children are students of Kennett Consolidated, my two oldest remember your daughter fondly and what an amazing person she was. From what they spoke of her, she truly was a ray of sunshine who touched all those who had the fortune to know her. Take comfort knowing she is with the angels and is watching over all of your family. God bless you and give you comfort in this difficult time.

  47. I am so saddened by Maggie’s passing. Justin and I shared just some of our fond memories of her tonight from Greenwood. She was so kind and supportive to him during a time when he needed it most – even though she didn’t realize what he was going through at the time. We are sending our love and prayers during this difficult time.

    Hilary Eberle | April 23, 2018 at 10:14 PM
  48. I did not know Maggie well – but you didn’t have to to see what a wonderful, genuine, wonderful person she was. I had duty in the cafeteria at the time – and believe me you can tell alot about a school from its cafeteria – and I used to see her walk in with a smile, sit with her friend from the special friends club. She smiled and waved to so many – she really did light up a room. She was loved by so many.
    Mr. O – you have always been so wonderful to all my children. From the very bottom of my heart, please know how sorry I was to hear this news, and that you are in our thoughts.

    Please accept my most heartfelt sympathy at your unimaginable loss. Maggie will always hold a special spot in my heart for the unbounded kindness, willing friendliness, dedicated musicianship, and limitless giggles that she brought to Room 58, the Greenwood music room.

  55. Your daughter was a breath of sunshine!

    I met her in her first grade CCD .
    I was one of her teachers.
    My son Luigi was in her class too.

    Then my daughter Alessandra was one of her karate teachers.

    I always remember her as such a sweet respectable young girl.

    My family is praying for you all.

    God just received a shining star .

    Prayers
