Margaret Mary " Maggie" Allardyce, 80, of Natrona Heights, passed away Sunday, February 2, 2020 in Allegheny Valley Hospital, Natrona Heights. She was born December 3, 1939, in Pittston to the late James and Mary Allardyce. Maggie was a graduate of St. John the Evangelist High School in 1957. She was employed at many restaurants, the last being Jack's in Sarver. Maggie enjoyed watching her Steelers, Pirates, college football and golf, playing scrabble with friends, bingo, trips to the casino and her friends at Silver Splash at the YMCA. Her real enjoyment was helping others out and volunteering at Meals-on-Wheels, but if Maggie could be anywhere it would be at the beach. Her positivity was the key to her longevity. Maggie is survived by her adoring children, Michael (Gretchen) Oakes, of Arnold, twin daughters, Pamela (David) Conroy, of Natrona Heights and Patricia (Frederick) Lovetro Jr., of Greenville, S.C.; grandchildren, Lindsay (Matthew) Kuniak, Lisa, Vince (Audrey) and Vivian Lovetro and Madison Oakes; step-grandchildren, Erin (Brian) Maples, Heidi (Justin) Oertel and Kristina (Michael) Mitchell; great-grandchildren, Morgan, Andrew and Gabriel Kuniak; step great-grandchildren, Bridget, Samantha and Ellie Maples, Isaac, Hallie and Julian Oertel and Brody Mitchell; brother, John (Sharon) Allardyce, of Katy, Texas; and by several nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, Maggie was preceded in death by her brothers, Robert in 2006 and James in 1994, and by her best friend, Phyllis Walters. Maggie's wishes were to give a heartfelt thank you to Dr. Darrell Petz and Dr. V. Srinivasan for taking special care of her.
