A Farewell to Our Dear Friend, Maggie Luck

Maggie Luck, and her loving family, have touched our hearts deeply for several years and it is with great sorrow to announce that she passed away on October 27, 2016.

One of Maggie’s two daughters, Kelly Luck, recently posted the following announcement:

“My mom’s life has always been filled with love, compassion and a sense of wonder. And now it is time to send her off on her next big adventure. Her love and strength will live on through her family and the many people she has touched. She passed away at home surrounded by her family in the beautiful Colorado Mountains that she loved so much.”

HERA will remain forever touched by Maggie’s kindness, generosity, her love for the mountains, and her ability to live out her life to the fullest. We are humbled and grateful to have been introduced to the wonderful Luck family and to have spent time with them in Eldorado Canyon — a place that inspired her beautiful paintings – which were auctioned and quickly snapped up at Climb4Life in June. We are grateful to award the 2016 Outside the Box Research Grant in Maggie’s honor to Johns Hopkins University. Maggie remains in our hearts.
