June 1941 was just an ordinary month until the 18th, in New York City, when God decided to shake things up by bringing into existence a phenomenal woman, Magary the eldest daughter of the late David and Magary Nixon. 

At an early age the family relocated to Ellenville, NY.

Magary graduated from Ellenville High School. She continued on and received her license as a Cosmologist. Later on in her life she furthered her education receiving a AAS from BMCC, majoring in Business Administration. She also attended classes in business, technology and marketing.

During her journey she was employed and then retired from Verizon as a Facility Specialist, BOCES as TASC Chief Examiner. She was also employed by the City of Poughkeepsie as a Certified Teachers Assistant and a Substitute Teacher.

Her most vital role was to continue to assist in planning, promoting and presenting all future endeavors of the said organizations. Magary lived by the mantra" If I can help somebody, then my living shall not be in vain."
