Margaret was cousin to my husband Paul Spieles. When his parents died Margaret's parents raised Paul from a young boy. He often told me that Margaret and Carlton his other cousin were so kind to him. Margaret was always kind and generous to everyone. She will be missed by many that knew and loved her. RIP Margaret. Love you.
