I worked with Margaret at Oakdale Junior High.
We were best of friends and she was a wonderful teacher. I was sorry to see her retire because I knew we would drift apart as life gets in the way despite good intentions. I am so sorry for her family’s loss and pray God gives each you peace. Keep her in your hearts always.
