I knew Marggee as an Angel on earth when she lived in San Diego. We worked together and I will always remember her kindness and unending energy towards helping others. She had a huge heart and bountiful spirit that reached so many. She is an inspiration to us all and is greatly missed.

Dear Peter:
It was a honor and a privilege to have your wonderful wife Marggee consider me a friend. I treasured her friendship, love, conversations and our personal connection. I know she will be watching over you and all those she loved, with the same smile, radiant glow and twinkle in her eyes that she displayed while here on earth. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Lisa, Robbie, Ryan, Kaelyn, Mrs. Daley, as well as with all of her sisters, brothers, nieces and nephews, extended family and friends. Marggee's physical presence will be sorely missed but her courage, faith in God, memory and her love will always be in our hearts.
With love,

We send our condolences to Marggee's family. Though her passing much too premature, she lived life to the fullest as she faced her health challenges through the years with grace and courage.

We always referred to her as an angel-she was beautiful inside and out and will leave a void in the lives of those who knew her.
