Maggie Croud Obituary

    Maggie Doris Croud, beloved daughter of Lillian Eustis and Joseph Croud, sister to Sarah Croud and aunt to Noelani Croud, passed away at her family home in Frontenac on July 14, 2019 after a long illness. She was 37.
    Maggie was compassionate, funny, loving and wise. She was devoted to her family, loved to travel and was a fiercely independent spirit. In high school, she was all-Goth when none of her friends were.  She brewed her own beer, foraged for mushrooms, and went snorkeling in the Pacific a few months before her death. She was never a victim.  In her struggle with cancer she never succumbed to self-pity. She had a lifelong love of nature, wildlife and all animals.
    She trained as a veterinary technician and worked at the International Wolf Center in Ely, Minn., the University of Minnesota Twin Cities and the River Bluff Humane Society in Red Wing. At the time of her death, she was studying biochemistry at Minnesota State University, Mankato.
Maggie was an enrolled member of the Ojibwe Nation, Pillager Band, White Earth Reservation.  Her Ojibwe name was Ishkwegaabawikwe which means “Woman Who Stands Last.”
    She is survived by her mother, Lillian Eustis; sister, Sarah Croud; half-sister, Josette Croud; half-brother, Solomon Croud; step-mother, Jeanne Croud; grandmother, Nancy Eustis; niece, Noelani Croud; nephew, Kona Croud; aunts and uncles, Linda and Drew Frankel, Belinda Frankel and Karl Begley, Maja Anderson and Jon Frankel, John Newman, Sarah Croud and Laurie and Oskar Eustis; cousins, Elizabeth, Catherine, Braun, Chance, Zofia, Jesse and Andrew Frankel, Alex and Ben Begley, and Kyle Brown; in addition to a community of loving friends.
    Memorial service will be held at the Mahn Family Funeral Home, Bodelson-Mahn Chapel, 602 Plum Street in Red Wing, at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 11, with reception to follow. Burial will be at the Christ Episcopal Church Cemetery in Old Frontenac.  In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to the River Bluff Humane Society in Maggie’s honor.  Online condolences may be sent to the family at
