Maggie was a lifelong resident of West Caldwell, NJ, where she and her husband, the late Charles F. Bischoff, Jr., raised their family. Maggie was born in Glen Ridge, NJ to the late Raymond and Adeline (Schroeder) VanDyke. She graduated from Caldwell High School in 1945 and Averett College in Virginia. Maggie and Charlie where active in the community, especially at the First Presbyterian Church at Caldwell, where they participated in church committees, session, deacons and the Serve Shop. Nobody loved a party or could throw a better one than Maggie. Memories of fun times in Cape Cod and Hilton Head with all their friends and family are everlasting. She will be remembered as a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, friend, neighbor and church member. Maggie was an avid reader and loved crossword puzzles.
