Margaret will be remembered as a wonderful wife, mother, sister and friend. Her beautiful smile lit up the room, and her big heart welcomed everyone into her life. She loved to entertain Her family was her priority, she was devoted to her two boys. Margaret was fun loving and determined.

Condolence & Memory Journal

Please accept my condolences! I was at a loss for words when I heard she lost her battle against cancer. I used to work with Margaret at the school a few years ago. She always greeted you with a smile, was always available to talk to and never failed to make me laugh. Margaret was so proud of her family and always spoke so lovingly about you all. I know this is a difficult time but try to remember all the memories you have together to give you strength to move forward. You will all ne in my prayers.

It is with profound sadness that I write in this Guestbook. Margaret was a wonderful wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, niece and cousin. All that knew her quickly came to love her. She came to the US as a young woman and built a wonderful life for herself. She found the love of her life in Jerome and her boys were her world. Margaret was extremely beautiful, both inside and out. She exemplified grace and dignity. May she Rest in Peace and may God Bless Jerome and their beautiful boys.
