June 27, 1934 – November 22, 2018
Margaret Mary Francis Granger, age 84, passed away peacefully on the morning of November 22, 2018 at NY Hospital of Queens. She was born on June 27, 1934 in Manhattan to James and Elizabeth Doherty.
Margaret grew up in Manhattan, NY. She graduated from St. Francis de Sales High School in 1951. She was mainly a devoted housewife, but often volunteered for the St. Ann's school and parish in Flushing. She enjoyed reading, speaking on the phone regularly with close friends while enjoying a 1/2 glass of wine, shopping for anything her children and grandchildren needed, and jigging to Irish music.
Margaret is survived by her husband Harold, her three children: Cathy (Robert), Kevin (Kristine), James (Miosottis), and her two grandchildren: Emilia and Jack, who she loved more than she could ever put into words.
Margaret was preceded in death by her parents James and Elizabeth, and her two sisters: Ann (Ira Silverman) and Eileen (John Rohan).

I'm going to miss you deeply Mrs. Granger. I loved you. You were so nice to me. So nice to all of us. You were in essence everybody's second mother.
I remember when I got my first apartment on my own in my early 20s and you bought me a microwave for my apartment. I had that mcrowave for years.
Afew years ago on the phone we talked abut that microwave and you asked if I still had it, I said I had it acouple o microwaves ago.... And we laughed and laughed about it. It was our kind of secret joke.
I loved talking with you every Christmas and St. Patrick's Day. Everyone was Irish on that day. OH how you loved St. Patrick's Day.
We will see each other again one day Mrs. Granger. Love you forever.
