Lisa was the proud mother of her two sons, Remington Houston Spears Tenpenny and Billy Michael Spears Gibler.
 
Lisa grew up in a home full of love and music. She also grew up with three older sisters whom she loved to tease and annoy with her goofiness. She had a great sense of humor. She pampered her cats and loved all baby animals.
 
Lisa was a gifted musician. Growing up hearing her father's fiddle, family visits to Oklahoma which were full of family music in her grandparents backyard and home, and many band practices and musical jams in her childhood home, Lisa fell in love with the sounds she heard.  She soaked it all up and learned to play the steel guitar at the age of 15, and soon began creating her own unique style.
Lisa sat in and played with her father's band every chance she got.

Maggie was a direct descendant of Harmen Jansz Potgieter who was one of the very first immigrants from Europe to South Africa. He was a resident of Nordhorn, Grafschaft Bentheim, Germany and arrived in South Africa in 1670. His wife, Isabella Fredericks, was from Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Her deceased brother, Alan, was living in Bloemfontein, South Africa, at the time of his death. A fourth sibling, Anna, died shortly after birth.

When Maggie was a young girl, her parents joined the Seventh-day Adventist church and she remained a faithful member and dedicated Christian until her death. She attended Girls High School (Clarendon High School) in East London and after leaving school, she began working as a seamstress. This became a life-long passion and many of the wealthy people of East London were her customers. She ran her business from home enabling her to be with the five children she raised while her husband, George, was gone most of the week working as a commercial representative.
