Margaret, my sweet sister, named me and watched over me closely, taking me nearly everywhere she went. She was gorgeous and beautiful from the inside - out. Everyone loved her and admired her. She was the sweet one and the peacemaker in the family. She took such good care of our mother, too. When anyone needed anything, She was there. God blessed all of us with her presence.

I’m honored to have known this amazing Matriarch, Margaret Weisner.
I first met her daughter Vicki at the Medina Children’s Home where she came to care for children.
As a Christian woman Margaret knew that it was her responsibility to take care of others. She encouraged Vicki to step out and serve others. She contributed her whole life. She made it a goal to help others through their difficult times. With loving care she took care of her grandson until he passed and unselfishly supported her granddaughter through some very difficult times.
Margaret gave of her whole being taking great care to expose all around her through the faithful example she always was. She Learned the words of the Lord as a young girl and passed it through generations through her teaching at home and Church. She was such a wonderful storyteller that the children all gathered around to listen and learn what God had to say to them.
She opened her home to her children and grandchildren through the years, and never left them without her words of wisdom. There was always time for a good laugh. Through her tap dancing and antics mimicking the ole fashioned broadway dancers. She took center stage even up through her late seventies. If you needed a good laugh just watch a good movie with Margaret. It was best to sit down for a while. The movie was always extended due to enjoyable comments along the way from Margaret. She always had something funny to say. Her humor was contagious as I’ve been witness to. Margaret loved beauty. She was very creative, transforming rocks into houses, creating whole towns out of simply added a little paint. She crocheted Afghans and pillows sharing her God given gifts. Her legacy will live on for generations in the lives of her family. As she leaves this earth for her heavenly home she will be greatly missed. But as she passes the torch to her daughter to hold, I have no doubt we will see her in every moment, in every smile and every example praising God.

Ms. Margaret was my sweet neighbor for many years. It makes me so sad to hear of her passing. My sincere sympathy for the family and my prayer is for peace and comfort for all during this sad time.
