  • I am so sad to hear of the passing of Margaret, my wonderful long-time friend. I have countless memories of our fun adventures together “back in the day,” as well as our everyday life as next-door neighbors: Annual winter vacations to mountain cabins, excursions to “the holler,” borrowing cups of sugar, sharing morning coffee on the patio… In more recent years, I have looked forward to our long conversations on the phone. Her stories and her laughter always made my day. I send my love and sympathy to all the family. I will miss my dear friend!

  • I miss you Margaret – miss seeing you tend your flowers and miss our talks. One of our serious
    discussions as we grew older was whether it was more difficult to get down to weed or to try
    to get up afterward! This and other important subjects we would discuss while resting on the
    porch. And the world goes on …..
    Your long-time neighbor, Jeanette

  • Aunt Margaret will forever remain in our hearts and memories

  • The impact, a person has throughout their life is like a thought, you have so many, yet none can come to mind until it is your time. And then you are gone. Mom, until it is my time to go. You always will be in my thoughts. That little voice inside my head I just can’t seem to rid of.

    Miss you!!
