Thank you for sharing your "joie de vivre" Margo. I can still remember the laughter in your voice so many years later and that contagious smile and down-to-earth demeanor that puts all in your presence at ease. How you will be missed. And years later, as a mother myself, I think back to how you loved your children with all that was in you. What a beautiful example of Christ's love for us. Thank you for being such an instrumental role model. I thank Jesus for bringing you into my life and love you dearly.

Such a loving , kind, and generous woman. She was the first person to greet me when I first came to the museum on Vulcan. Such warmth radiated from her. She will be missed.

My beautiful mom, I loved you so much. It only deepened as time moved on. You showed me how to be kind and gracious. To never give up no matter the circumstances. To love my family heritage and to smile often and praise God often. I already miss you so much. Love you Mom!! Your daughter Joanne

You were such a loving woman, so full of happiness and joy.
You blessed so many people just being in their presence
I know you are looking down on your wonderful husband and family
God has you cradled in everlasting light, love and protection
