I believe this is the same Margretta Clark I knew from years ago. We met as fellow students at Martino Beauty Academy in 1980. Margretta wasn't your typical beauty school student, being older than everyone and wiser, with teased up, roller set hair. In spite of our differences we became fast friends and I admired her greatly. To this day, every time I wash a glass, I recall the story of her daughter getting badly cut while washing a glass and I'm sure to be super careful and credit Margretta for sharing her words of wisdom, I'm sure she'll be missed.
