We want to thank everyone for joining us in celebrating the life of Margaret. She was a devout Catholic who will forever be cherished by those who had the privilege to have known her. Her kindness, thoughtfulness and loving heart will never be forgotten by those closest to her. Margaret was the best wife, mother and grandmother we could have ever asked for. The world is a lesser place without her but Heaven has been blessed with another angel to guide us until we meet her again.
