I knew her as Mrs. Carroll. She was always friendly and smiling. The Carroll family spend a lot of time involved in active sports, baseball being a favorite. Ron (her husband) was also a great guy. They looked like a really happy husband and wife. I moved off to the Chicago area and lost contact with the Carrolls but when heard of Mrs. Carroll passing it was very sad to know. Proud to have known such a wonderful woman. Rest in Peace.

We send condolences to the Family. We were very sad to read of Margaret's passing. We had a wonderful visit with her in August, 2014. Margaret's Aunt, Margaret, was my Grandmother. In this photo I am on the far left with my daughter Angie and her family. With our Sincere Sympathy. Diana (Martin) Robeson

I remember sitting in church, she used to sit behind us on Sundays. She always had a smile, really liked her a lot. It's been 40 years since I attended Messiah, seems like only yesterday.
Sending prayers and hugs to Mike, Steve, and Dave, you had a great Mom.
