As people go, Margarita Lagomassino was a standout. As single mothers go, she was the “gold standard”.

I will never forget when I first met her over 30yrs ago. I was in awe of all that she had accomplished as she managed to raise four “good” children, all of whom would go on to graduate with university degrees to pursue successful careers.

As a grandmother, Margarita, I owe you my deepest and sincerest debt of gratitude as you loved and cared for our son Noah like no one else could. Over these many years, the two of you formed a bond that is rich and enduring. It is pleasing to know, Noah has an Angel in you now and forevermore, along with many cherished memories.

Her energy contagious, emulating pure love and always accompanied by lots of humor, smiles and laughter, Margarita could light up the room. I’ll forever remember two of her favorite words “Luz y Alegre”.

Margarita, I will remember you always for all of your unconditional love, light and smiles. Here’s to You, an Angel that now bares a light unto the world.

With Deep Love & Gratitude Always!❤️

Dear Esther and Family,
I have so many wonderful memories with Margarita that will always stay with me. She always had a spark in her kind eyes that lit up my soul. Her witt and her sweet-hearted humor always brought a smile to my face. What a wonderful lady.
My warmest, heartfelt condolence to all of you. I send huge hugs from over here in Sweden.
Lots of love,
Cathy

Tía Margarita
Siempre sonriente y conversadora
Me recuerdo esos veranos que nos quedábamos en su casa
Siempre fue muy divertida
Te extrañare mucho

My biggest memory of Tia was when she worked at the UM library. Some Sundays she would take me to work with her. We would rent movies in black and white and spend hours watching them. My teenage years were perfect because she was there with me. She took me to buy a dress for my first dance (8th grade). So many wonderful memories to look back to. Love you always.

I remember after I went thru my chemo and radiation therapy for my cancer I started going to Esthercita house with a wig due that I had lost my hair after that first day she told me what a nice hair cut I did but after that she got kind of suspicious it was a wig and she want to pull the hair to make sure it was a wig or not. But I didn’t let her I told her it will hurt me If she pull my hair so she ask me for me to do it so I just touch my hair pretending I was pulling it

Tia Margarita babysat Lizzie and me Saturdays in the 1970s when my parents went out with friends. We'd pal around with our buddy Esther. Margarita was so funny and so much fun. I would call her by pop's nickname for her, "Margara." She made the best Mahatma rice, and I always loved her old cars from the 1950s.
Dinner was always late, and whenever I complained she would say, "Da la casualidad que hoy me demore." It became a running joke. And she never let me forget the time I complained, offended that my pediatrician Dr. Oyarzun washed his hands after examining me physically. She would burst out laughing every time she remembered.
The phrase "da la casualidad" will stay with me always. I will never forget her warmth and all the childhood adventures of those days with Lizzie and Esther.

Tia Margarita ,
Always there from my earliest memories, giggling and warm.
Never judgemental, always generous and accepting.
She was always ready for an adventure and enjoyed people of every age.
Our lives were so enriched by her smile and her love.
