  1. Margaret’s departure is such a shock for your family and for those of us who call her our friend.
    Marg was very private, but once you became part of her world, she was incredibly loyal and supportive… always.
    She lived her life true to her strong faith and steadfast values.
    I will miss her dry sense of humour and will forever treasure the friendship we shared for over half a century.
    She will live on in our hearts.

  2. My deepest sympathies to your family. I am so saddened and shocked to think that Margaret has passed away. Heaven’s gain is our loss. I once heard the only thing you can take with you when you leave this world is the love in your heart you have for those you leave behind, Margaret certainly took a lot of love with her, her love of God, her family and her faith community She will be greatly missed. Love & blessings to you all.
