Goodbye my sweet friend! Margaret was so dear to me. She always had a smile and a hug and a gift for Maddie every time I saw her. She shared so many stories about her husband with me. You were an amazing woman and I will truly miss you. Walk with Jesus and watch over us. See you again one day Mrs Margaret :)

I was Margaret's mailman for over 30 years. She was always happy and laughing. It was always a pleasure to stop by, hand her the mail and visit and laugh. She cared about everyone. She will be missed in the Moriah community.

Margaret will always hold a special place in my heart. She and Margie Winstead urged me to come back to Bethany after a 25 year absence. She was always so encouraging to me. I will miss her very much.
