Margaret was a singing partner and lovely friend when I joined the Brant Belle a Dears choir. We missed her greatly when she retired from the first alto section, and I am saddened to hear of her death at the same time as thankful to know she is now at peace with her Lord.
My condolences to her family in this time of loss.
