Margaret was the life of the party and always made everything fun. Her sense of humor, generosity and devotion to her family was always admired and will be dearly missed. Mom made raising seven children seem easy. Her love and support made all of us feel very secure and we had little need for material things. She raised us to be respectful of others and to be thankful for what we had. We were brought up to work for what you wanted and make the most out of life. To think positive and always look at the bright side. Thanks Mom, we greatly appreciate all you did for us. You will live on in our hearts.
