James and family,
How saddened I was to learn about Margaret's passing after the fact. She was a beautiful Christian and lived her testimony every day of her life as she gave of herself to those with whom she came in contact. Please be assured of our thoughts & prayers for your family during this time.

I'll remember a friend with a quick smile and an incredible laugh , someone with a warm personality, and a hard worker who would eagerly do anything asked of her.
I'll miss her. Mildred (Davis) Jordan (Madison,TN)
