I share the sadness in your heart. Margaret was my favorite Aunt. It was
just her nature to make everyone feel special and show love. Such a strong
beautiful Christian woman that will be missed. I hope you’ll find comfort
with her no longer being in pain.

Margaret was such a sweet person. She always made me feel welcome in the family. I'll never forget how she and Cranell brought my favorite meals to me daily the first week after Christy was born because I had no appetite after my C-section. She was always supportive and never criticized my way of parenting. She was only officially my mother-in-law for about 2 and a half years in the '80s but she continued to be just as sweet and supportive as ever all these years since. Rest in peace Margaret. 💕

Margaret was my aunt and we grew up with, she was more like a big sister than an aunt. She was a remarkable woman. I was there when she and Hershal were dating when they were married and thought out their lives. She was one of the most loving , compassionate people I have ever known. She has left a hole in a lot of lives, she will be missed. From your niece and nephew, Karren and Jerry Don

Dearest Herschel, Marge, Allen, Kim, and also Jerry. I know all of you will miss this sweet and precious person and nothing I can say will prevent you from hurting but you knew that she loved you all so much. Margaret was always the same, every time I saw her, with that big smile. School at Powderly to 1 block apart when the kids were young and then out on Pine Mill. My sympathy and prayers go with you.

Margaret (Bogget) was my aunt, my mom's baby sister. She always had a smile and a sweet word to anyone she saw. I have so many precious memories of summers at grandma's house playing red rover or telling stories in the evening. Hershel, Allen, Kim and Margie, I send you all my love and prayers for God's comfort and peace. Love you all, Patty.

Herschel, Margie, Allen, Kim,

Words are not strong enough to say what your wife/mom meant to me and the boys. She was an amazing friend, so kindhearted and giving, such a beautiful person. We will cherish the memories we had with her. Our condolences go out to you all.

Margie, Allen and Kim,

I share your pain and suffering. Margaret was a wonderful sister and I loved her more than I could ever express in words.

She was loved by everyone I know and her trips to California added to the many friends she had.
