  • Oh my, one of God’s angels she was, just as sweet as flowers. I was fortunate to have met her and spent time talking, she was a lady who had a lot of class and warm love in her heart. She shared so much with others during her teaching years.
    Her smile was so pretty and memorable. Meg and Mike…keep your memories close to your heart.

  • I am very 😞sorry..I will keep you in my prayers..we can only keep living with good memories..until we see them again .

  • Aunt Margo was a wonderful person, we’ll miss her immensely. She was great to us all our lives but she was so incredibly compassionate chatting with my elderly Dad every weekend… talking my mother through her dementia… telling my dying Dad what he meant to her… and being there for me with such understanding about how I was feeling after losing my dad and then my mom getting sick one right after the other. It was an unexpected blessing to be able to talk more with her one on one the last two years, and her continuing consolation was the most valuable I received in helping me get past my own grief. Thank you Aunt Margo, we love you, and we will miss you, and please save me a seat at the party table when my time comes!
