Margaret Rose "Maggie" (Vitiritto) Porter, Des Moines, Iowa

Heaven gained another angel, Margaret "Maggie" Porter, on March 12, 2020.

Maggie was born on October 21, 1947 to Joseph and Josephine (Grasso) Vitiritto in Des Moines, Iowa. Maggie was one of seven children.

In 1979, Maggie met the love of her life, Craig Porter, and they were married in 1982. Maggie was a devoted mother to their blended family of four children. She was a doting grandma of seven and
great-grandma of four. She loved her winter trips with her husband, and her sister/mother trips and hitting every casino on the way.

Maggie was a dedicated hair stylist for many years and ended her employment at Prairie Meadows as a hostess/cashier. Maggie never knew a stranger and always had a smile for everyone she met. We will truly miss her tender touch, wise advice, and never ending hugs and kisses.

Maggie is survived by her husband of 38 years, Craig; sons, Sam (Amber) Bradshaw, Billy (Jamie) Porter and Keith Porter; daughter, Brandi (Cody) Cleghorn; brothers, Joe (Ronnie) Vitiritto and Leonard (Soozie) Vitiritto; sisters, Angie Spratt, Mary Ann (Stan) Frew, Carmie (Chris) Bush and Anna Bush; seven grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, many loving nephews, nieces, and friends.

The family wants to express deep gratitude to Maggie's caregiver, sister-in-law, Mary McGrane, of Superior, Arizona. We couldn't have done it without her. Also, a special thanks to the Hospice nurses for their loving care.

A Celebration of Life Gathering will be held from 2-5pm, September 18, 2021 at the Union Labor Park, 4640 NW Morningstar Drive, Des Moines. Online condolences are Memorials may be directed to the family for future distribution.
