I’m thankful I knew Margo. Visited her in her office periodically during my time at TSD. She enjoyed talking about her plants; she was helpful with questions and concerns. A special lady!

Margo was my best friend at work. I loved her so much. We did everything together. She loved flowers and animals. We would drive around the neighborhood and spot flowers and ask the owners if we could get seeds when the flowers turned to seed. We would feed the squirrels unsalted peanuts and she would save her bread from lunch to feed the geese. She was so smart and held several degrees. She taught me so much.
To her family. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. If I can do anything for you just let me know,
I have missed Margo this year and now will miss her forever.
Lots of love to you all,
Susie Helmboldt-Jones
