    Margaret was a shining example for all of us who were blessed to know her.
    She always had a smile and a kind word along with her hugs.
    She was certainly a roll model on grace and positive thinking.
    Margaret was my model of who I would like to be more like.
    I, personally, feel that my life is richer for having known her.
    I will miss seeing her at our Newcomers Luncheons,
    I will miss seeing her smile, her suites and her wonderful hats.
    A life well lived and lovingly remembered.

    Margaret was a lovely lady. I knew her through the Newcomers Club. She was always smiling and had a kind word to say and a hug. She was a wonderful role model and had a good sense of humor. There needs to be more “Margaret’s” in our world today. I feel blessed to have known her and she will be greatly missed. 💐💐

    Margaret was such a wonderful neighbor and friend when we purchased our first home years ago. She gave me a baby shower and brought all the new neighbors together. She was so gracious and loving. Years later, we connected again at Newcomers, and she always remembered the fun times we had in that neighborhood. I appreciated her friendship and example.

    My sincere sympathy to the family and friends of Margaret. The loss of our dear loved ones can be very difficult and distressing to cope with. It has helped myself and others when we remember that our dear loved ones now safely rest in the loving memory of our Grand Creator, Jehovah ( Psalm 83 : 18 – God’s name ). May you be comforted in knowing that Jehovah hates death ( 1 Corinthian 15 : 26 ) and promises to eliminate death forever and bring ones sleeping in death back to life on a cleansed earth. ( John 17 : 3; Isaiah 25 : 7,8; Revelation 21 : 3-5; Acts 24 : 15; Psalms 37 : 10,11, 29 ). I hope these few scriptures along with your own good and loving memories of Margaret help to soothe your hearts and bring you comfort, peace and a hope. Sincerely
