I met Margaret over 20 years ago at the former Jesuit Urban Center (Church of the Immaculate Conception) in Boston. When in the Boston area, Margaret joined us for the monthly "Last Tuesday" dinner ministry. Her kindness and uplifting spirit always made our event better. She gave generously and blessed our community with her presence, and a loving pre-meal dinner. We remained pen pals for a long time, and I am saddened to know of her passing. The 100 years that she lived is only a part of her legacy, marked with the love that flowed to and from a beautiful lady with a loving heart. I will miss you, Margaret, of course, but I will always remember your smile and your friendship. Rest Joyfully.

RIP Margaret. May your family find comfort in God at this time, as you have joined your husband.
I met Margaret and Joseph many years ago in Oxnard, CA. She was feisty, fun and spoke her mind, and I liked that. They were a very nice people. I'm a friend of many decades, of her oldest daughter Mary. Over the years I think I've met almost all of Margaret's children, but the youngest son, I've been fortunate to also meet some of Margarets grandsons. What a great family to know!
