Margaret was a dear friend and coworker . We taught and counseled together in the Hinds County School District and attended classes together at MS College. She was such a sweet , compassionate teacher, counselor, and friend , working diligently to make a positive impact on her students . She drew her strength and loving nature from her Savior and Lord. She has a special place in many hearts and will be greatly missed .

Rest in the Lord Margaret. You were loved by us and so many others. Your bubbly personality and beautiful smile just drew people to you. We are going to miss you but we will meet you in heaven some day. Your pain and suffering is all over.
Love your Sister and Brother-in-law,
Sheila and Joe

She was the first to welcome me into the Gary Road Int. School family. She also co-directed my wedding. The memories of her have become even more precious now that she's gone, and she will live forever in my heart.
