Wolfe Street Center will host a Memorial Service for Maggie Chafin Langley on Sunday, August 14th from 2 - 4 pm. Please join us for a heartfelt celebration of our wonderful Maggie. Close family and friends released today this tribute in her memory:
We are writing with sadness at the passing, and with gratitude for the life of Maggie Chafin Langley. Maggie died on August 3rd with over 25 years of sobriety at age 65, surrounded by family and beloved friends after a protracted fight with kidney failure. Maggie was a long-time member of the 120 1/2 group at Wolfe Street and worked on the front lines of recovery for many years. She helped hundreds of people find a new life and tried to help hundreds more. Maggie worked at Serenity Park, the Kelley Foundation, the Mid-Arc "slobbering center" (as she called it!) and other treatment facilities. She shared amazingly generously of her clarity, humor, wisdom and hope. She is survived by her devoted sister Barbara Chafin Kutko, and brother-in-law John Kutko of Clarksville, Arkansas, her husband Ron Langley of Australia, numbers nieces, nephews and their children, and streams of friends from a life richly lived, deeply felt and often enjoyed. She will be sorely missed.
