We worshipped together for many years
at St. Johns United Methodist Church. It was a pleasure to be a part of her life.

One of my favorite memories of Margaret was how devoted she was to her grand and great grandchildren. Nothing was too hard for her when it came to her family.
When we needed a special Strawberry Shortcake doll, Cabbage patch doll or Lego set for Christmas she was on the job. She would call all the stores, talk up the sales clerks for hints of when it was stocked, be at the store before it opened and run in and snatch up the desired toy before anyone else had a chance to grab it.
She was absolutely amazing!
We miss you Nana!
