I will always remember Maberson as the sweet soul that she was- one of the kindest upperclassmen on the girls soccer team and, yes, one of the best defenders I have ever met and had the privilege to share the field with. Her kindness was felt on and off the field through rides to the practice field and after home game outings. Wishing her husband and children peace and discernment in this time of loss. We will definitely be praying for all of you in this time of grief, Lauren Loy and family
