Alabama nurse among 23 killed in deadly tornado

Among the 23 killed in the aftermath of a deadly tornado in Alabama March 3 was a nurse at East Alabama Medical Center in Opelika, WSFA-12 News.

Three things to know:

1. Maggie Robinson, RN, had worked at the hospital since she was 17, and was about to celebrate her 40th work anniversary.

2. She began her career at the hospital as a nursing assistant in progressive care and became an RN in 1991. She most recently worked in EAMC's endoscopy unit.

"Everybody loved Maggie because she made it easy to love her, and like her. The Bible says the righteous will be remembered forever; I would like to say I believe that to be true about our Maggie. She had a heart of compassion and was so loving to us and to her patients," one of Ms. Robinson's co-workers told WSFA-12 News.

3. Hospital officials confirmed to the publication that Ms. Robinson's home was also destroyed by the natural disaster.
