Margaret was always a rainbow on a dreary day. She could brighten a room with her smile and laughter like no other. Quick to share little anecdotes and put you in your place. It was truly a joy having Margaret around and her absence will definitely be felt for a very long time.

Margaret was truly a beautiful person. She lived with us in our facility for the last seven years and was always ready to give a smile and a chuckle. Never did a male visitor come into the building that she didn't ask How tall are you? She would always participate in any activities that were going on, whether it be singing, crafts or watching television . Her smiling face and witty quips will be sorely missed.

Praying for you and your family. You and your parents hold such a special place in my heart.
