Memorial Gifts & Donations

Ann Leeuwenberg Magill, born on March 16, 1935, peacefully passed away on August 21, 2023, in her hometown of Wilmington, North Carolina. She was 88 years old at the time of her passing.

Ann was born and raised in Wilmington, where she developed strong ties to her community. She attended New Hanover High School, graduating with the class of 1954. Seeking further education, she went on to attend business college in Richmond, VA.

For an impressive 52 years, Ann dedicated her professional life as a bookkeeper at Fleishman’s. Throughout her time there, she formed deep connections with her colleagues, who became like family to her. Ann’s loyalty and love for the Fleishmans were evident in her work ethic and commitment.

Ann’s life was not without its share of loss. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Truman B. Magill, Jr., who passed away in 1988. Additionally, she mourned the loss of her sisters, Cornelia L. Royal and Johanna L. Allen, as well as her brother, Charles C. Leeuwenburg. Her parents, Cornelius Leeuwenburg and Margaret Forlaw Leeuwenburg, also preceded her in death.

Left to cherish her memory are her daughter, Robin Pearsall (Victor), and her son, Buddy Magill (Jennifer). Ann’s granddaughters, Courtney Baggett (Graham), Elizabeth Magill, and Anna Magill, held a special place in her heart. She adored them and cherished every moment spent together. Ann was also blessed with four great-grandchildren.

Ann is survived by her sister, Mary L. Sheffield, who will miss her dearly.

Services to celebrate Ann’s life will be held at 10 am on Wednesday, August 30, 2023 at Wilmington Funeral Chapel.  Family and friends are invited to join in bidding farewell to this remarkable woman.

Apart from her dedication to her career, Ann found joy in various activities. Cooking, reading, and spending time with loved ones were among her favorite pastimes. She particularly cherished the moments spent with her granddaughters and loved hearing about their adventures.

Ann will be remembered for her sense of humor and her selfless nature. Those fortunate enough to have known her experienced her unwavering support and kindness. Ann’s giving spirit touched the lives of many.

As we mourn the loss of Ann Leeuwenberg Magill, let us also celebrate the beautiful life she lived and the positive impact she had on those around her. May she rest in eternal peace.

    Buddy and Robin, Your Mom was a very special lady and a good friend. Mostly she was like a mother figure to me for the 15 years we worked together at Fleishman's from 1975 to 1990. I was still a teenager when I started working with Ann and had tremendous respect for her. I loved her great sense of humor and how she embraced life. I cannot remember a day in her work life that she did not start and finish each day with a positive attitude. She had a wonderful contagious dis position and I feel honored to have been able to spend so many days in my early adult life with her. I am honored to reflect on Ann's incredible life and on our friendship whic h continued long after my time at Fleishman's. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families but know you have many fond memories to reflect on during this difficult time in your life. Your friend, Marvin Robison

    I met Ann when we were both tweens, lived across the street on Bonham Avenue from her family for many years, was a bridesmaid in her wedding, and enjoyed going to movies and lunches with her until I moved to Texas in 2002. She was one of the most responsible people I have ever known. Since she was the oldest of five children in her family, she helped raise her siblings and went way beyond what would normally be expected of the eldest in the family. She was a loving sister, a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, a loyal employee, and a delightful friend. She will be missed.

    Ann was more than an employee she was a true friend. She had a sharp mind and an excellent memory. She could tell you anything you wanted to know about Wilmington and all the customers and employees she ever worked with and that shopped in the store. She loved talking with Neal about the good ole days. She and I loved to talk. As Neal could tell you, we’d talk for hours and still have something to say. I had a great conversation with Ann a week before she passed away. I was headed to my family’s annual Beach Week and she wanted to know about all my family- nieces and nephews included- she knew all about each and everyone one of them. She loved telling me about Elizabeth & Anna and Courtney and all her children. I already miss her, but know she’s in a better place. Love you Annie, Tracey ❤️
