Maggie Peterson Collection


Maggie Peterson, best known as “Charlene Darling” on The Andy Griffith Show, loved being part of that great show and the many friends and fans she’s made because of it. 


We received the following note from Maggie's family. They've also posted this on her GoFundMe page. They ask that we share it with you here. 

Dear Fans, Friends and Family,

It is with great sorrow that we report that our dear Aunt Maggie died yesterday afternoon (Sunday, May 15). She passed peacefully in her sleep with her family present.

Maggie's health took a turn for the worse after the death of her husband Gus and we are relieved that we were able to move her home to be close to family for her last days. We will be planning a private service for Maggie in the next few weeks. Although this fundraiser will no longer be accepting donations, we will keep it open for a few more weeks in order to communicate with this community.

Maggie wanted this community to know how much you meant to her over the past three years. Despite being in Las Vegas and away from her family, your love and devotion helped her to not feel alone. She made many mentions to us about how she couldn't believe how generous you all were. You truly made a positive impact on her life and helped her during some very difficult times.

Finally, Maggie's family would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Your caring and generosity was inspiring and we could not of done any of this without you. We hope that during this difficult time you can find solace in knowing how important you were for making the end of Maggie's life much better.

Thank you and God bless. 

Maggie's Family

Note: Weaver's will continue to sell Maggie's items to help the family with the expenses that they have incurred during her illness and funeral expenses. So your purchases will continue to help the family. Thanks for continuing to support the Mayberry family. All of the money goes to them from her collection- Jan


Weaver’s is continuing to team with Maggie's family to bring you photographs and other items from her career. We are hopeful that you find a treasure that brings you the same joy that Maggie received being on The Andy Griffith Show. Maggie wanted to share this collection rather that leaving it in a trunk. 

Maggie was residing in a senior assisted living facility. Since moving there, she required additional care due to her chronic health conditions, limited mobility, and restricted use of her arms. These conditions make it impossible for her to live independently. This level of care increased the costs for Maggie. The family still have cost for her expenses that they need to pay for as well as her funeral expenses.

As a fan who loves Maggie and certainly considers her a star, you might wonder about residuals from The Andy Griffith Show and where they might be. The Andy Griffith Show ended in the late sixties before residuals became what they are now.  Residuals were paid for only the first three re-airings of episodes on which actors appeared. Maggie has not received a residual for her work on The Andy Griffith Show in more than fifty years.

 Please look through the Maggie Peterson collection of photographs and other items. The photos are 8x10 inches and include Maggie’s autograph. Many are limited editions. All proceeds will go directly to helping Maggie's family with the expenses.
