    I’m one of the Yo Yo’s & known Margaret since 1st grade! Just can’t believe she’s gone. Remembering all of our trips together, she was one of the most vibrant, talkative (LOL) ones of the group. Love her & will miss her even more. And, in all those many stories she told, she talked a lot about her kids & grandkids, loved you so much. I hope that her family finds comfort in all the many memories they shared with her. RIP sweet lady!

    My second mom. No one could keep me in line better, that’s how I knew she cared. She inspired me to become the nurse that I am today, and that humor in any situation made it better. Sending love and prayers.. heaven is getting a beautiful and amazing woman..

    Also a yoyo but so much more. Margaret and I were friends, comrades and partners in crime when we were younger. I will miss her so. She was loved by all of us. Stacy and Jon always remember how strong she was and that is how she raised you. Her strength and love will be carried on by you. Love to all.

    Margaret and I worked together for 20 years and were friends from the very first day. She has touched so many lives and made us all better people for having known her. She was an outstanding nurse, a very loyal friend and her love for her family shone brightly in all that she did. Margaret, I will miss you so much, my friend.

    Margaret and I didn’t meet until the 9th grade but we became friends immediately. We roomed together at Tobacco Camp. So many wonderful and funny memories there!
    Loved her on the YoYo trips…she kept us all laughing as she told stories like no one else could!
    Dear Margaret I know you are in heaven with Jesus and suffering no more my friend. You will be missed by many but never forgotten.

    I am a friend of Stacy’s. Reading the wonderful things about your mother is breath of sunshine. I know words at this time will not take away the pain of loosing one your precious gifts, your mother. But I do know she is not suffering anymore, and she is resting with her Heavenly Father now. She has won her crown and on the other side. I send you peace and blessings through this trying time. This will be a time fo rejoicing and a celebration becuase her life was not in vain. I love girl.
