She loved working at her church. She was in charge of the funeral dinners for 13 years. She had a great crew that worked well together. She really enjoyed it until she became too ill. You could always find Margaret outside in her yard planting flowers or vegetable plants and weeding, which she enjoyed. She loved her yard work. Her brothers and sisters were always there for each other, and she really enjoyed that closeness and her Sunday outings with Jane and Don.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to Amy and Augie Twigg for helping the family so much during this time; to special friends, Donna and Rich Baldonieri, and Popeye, Pat and Don Troy who always made her laugh. She so looked forward to their visits. Thanks also to her nurse, Mary Ellen and her aides and the hospital for everything they did for her.
