My earliest memory of you was as an Aunt who had been brave enough to emigrate on her own to the US while only young and also the exciting parcels that would arrive from a far flung land very often with matching outfits for me and my mum (it was the 60''s after all).

The beautiful photo that is on this obituary was ALWAYS on your mother's sideboard for as long as I can remember, and anyone new visiting would inevitably ask who the beauty wa's. It was always said with pride 'that's our Margaret, she lives in the States now.' However, I imagine things didn't go so smoothly when you were planning on emmigrating as you wrote your plans down in your diary in French to keep things under wraps......but as I said she was a formidable woman and not knowing a word of the language bought a french/English dictionary and translated everything, this was how she found out about the big adventure. I do believe it didn't go down too well!! different times!!

You and Joe also invited your nephew over from the UK and looked after him for about a year when he was only 7 years old. Later on you also welcomed me into the family for a few months when you lived in Michigan City which was also a big undertaking - thank you. It was the time of Sybil, Pepper and Brunhilda the dogs that you were so fond of.

Brian and I enjoyed so much our visits to you and Uncle Joe when you moved to Florida and now feel very fortunate to count Brigette and Les as firm friends as well as cousins. Life didn't hand you great cards towards the end of your life, but you were so lucky to have those three take great care of you till the very end.

You were always fondly remembered and loved by your UK family and hopefully you will meet up with a few on the other side, especially your brother Jack. RIP Aunty Margaret and love to the rest of the family on this sad day xx

My dearest dearest friend....I'm so sorry about your Mother's passing. It is a day we all dread and yet I know you are comforted by her being at final rest and lasting peace. She will forever be a part of you; dwell in the good memories and know that you have been a loyal daughter, taking time to be with her most every day in the last 3+ years that she has been under nursing care.

I'm sorry for your loss. I know that there will be an emptiness in your life at this time. Willingly accept your daughter's assistance as she loves you dearly. Know that I am keeping you in my prayers and perhaps will get to visit with you soon.

LOVE YOU both!
