Born April 23, 1914 in Montclair, New Jersey, daughter of Charles and Daisy (Girton) Hurrey, Maggie passed away peacefully at Wake Robin April 6, 2017 just shy of her 103rd birthday. She graduated from Montclair High School, Mount Holyoke College (1936), and Bank Street College of Education (1937), then taught at Bank Street and Sarah Lawrence College. In 1939 she married George A. Wolf Jr., a senior at the Cornell University College of Medicine. In 1948 they bought a small farm in Jericho, Vermont and and in 1952 they moved to South Burlington when Dr. Wolf was appointed Dean of the U.V.M. College of Medicine. Mrs. Wolf was the author of 12 books about life in Vermont. The first (1965) was Anything Can Happen in Vermont and the most recent is Isn't Pushing Ninety Exercise Enough? She was past president of the Green Mountain branch of the American Association of Pen Women, The Fortnightly Book Club, and Friends in Council. She was also a member of the Klifa Club, Vermont Historical Society, Chittenden County Historical Society, and Chapter C, P.E.O. Maggie was an avid gardener and took good care of many chickens and pigs over the years. She is survived by her two daughters: Patty Wolf Strom and her husband Tage Strom of Upper Montclair, N.J. and Debbie Wolf Page and her husband Stephen Page of Williston; three grandsons: Patrick Strom and his wife Hilary, Peter Strom and his wife, Clare, Morgan Wolf Page and his wife Hayley, and Maggie's great grandson, Nicholas Strom. She was predeceased by her husband, Dr. George Wolf in 1990 and her sister Frances H. Phillips in 1971. In lieu of flowers contributions in her memory may be sent to the Hospice programs of the Visiting Nurse Association or Bayada. A special thanks to the wonderful staff at Wake Robin. A Circle of Remembrance will be held April 29 at Wake Robin.
