Marica N. Storck, age 91, of Terry passed away peacefully on Friday, March 29, 2013 at the Prairie Community Hospital in Terry.
Marica was born in Acampo, California (7 miles north of Lodi) on April 20, 1921, to Peter and Nota (Karras) Anagnos. She attended grade school at Live Oak Elementary and attended Lodi High School where she graduated in 1939. Soon thereafter, she married John Maragos at Lodi in 1939. The family farmed in the Lodi/Stockton, California area for many years. Marica spent most of her life as a homemaker, but also enjoyed occasionally working at her favorite jewelry store as a clerk. In 1975, she moved to Los Angeles, California to live with her daughter, where they both enjoyed the big city until 1994, when they both returned to Lodi to live on the family farm after her mother’s passing. In 2003, she moved to Galt, California and in 2007 to Terry, Montana with her daughter, where she made her home for the remainder of her life.
Marica loved Terry and especially loved to have coffee with her Terry friends. She enjoyed playing Bingo and enjoyed going to the senior center. She spent many years having a great time square dancing (back in the day), and enjoying a good glass of wine (any day). One of her loves was her special dog “Shu Shu” a companion with whom she spent 14 years cuddling. She was a member of the American Legion Auxiliary. Marica and her daughter loved making the Greek pastry “baklava” and loved sharing it with everyone. She played the violin in her younger years. She was also a fine seamstress and really enjoyed taking classes to learn the new-fangled computerized sewing machine she obtained. Marica always liked jokes and had a great sense of humor.
Marica is survived by her daughter, Diana Maragos of Terry, Mont., and a brother Spiro (Maridel) Anagnos of Acampo, Calif. She is also survived by a large extended Greek family in California. She was preceded in death by her parents, a son Emmanuel J. Maragos in 1978 and a brother Leo Anagnos in 2009.
