My deepest sympathies to you for our loss. Although I have not seen or spoken to Margaret in several years, I share in your loss. We would call to check on each other as I “inherited” her dreaded Meniere’s disease and we’d share our “stories” of episodes. I will always remember her as a vibrant, beautiful, and gentle woman (I, on the other hand, am a “spitfire” like Frances)just as my PaPa, her brother Walter, was as a man. God Bless and Comfort you all. With sympathy, Margaret’s great niece, Annette (Gene and Barbara’s daughter)
I will always remember your mom’s laugh and what a beautiful woman she was– she was always ready to travel and seemed to have a great time with family and friends — but she had a look that she could give
With her eyes to let you know she did not approve of whatever shenanigans were going on — quite a woman and I know she will be missed- wish I could be there but I’m on the west coast — my love to everyone – Annette
