I met Margaret at the W.O.W. meetings and she immediately became my friend. She had a truly loving and caring heart. If I missed a meeting she would call to check up on me. We shared our love of dogs. She will be missed. Condolences to family and friends.

I have known you since I was sixteen years old. You watched me play for the Blue Jays, the Breakers, C C Brick and Lumber, A & E Sales and then the CC Cannons. You always kept the stats on us at every game. You encouraged us when we needed it, chewed us out when we needed it. You coached against my team, you were on my team and you took some awesome pics of us playing. You have been a close and dear friend thru everything. I love you and I will mess you dearly💔

Have many memories of running to roads in Texas first playing against her High Tide team. Then first playing for her on travel team, then becoming a member of the High Tide team. Every time I hear Another One Bites The Dust. Have memories of where the High Tide team was walking onto a field to play ball. Margaret we loss touch after I moved back to South Carolina for work. Always wondered how you were I always think of the game we played and you as the coach of High Tide as a umpire here knew with the travel team you coached would have gave this team's a run for the championship. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Rest in Peace my friend. You will be missed by many. Till we meet again when my number is called.
