  • To the family of Margaret, she will be missed but never forgotten in all our hearts. During my years at United Telephone Company is was a extreme pleasure to work with her to give our customers the best! Margaret always had a smile and a very cheerful “hello” when she saw you. Yes, Margatet’s favorite dish was Paprikash Chicken, when her group had a pot luck, I always found that great dish by the aroma of her cooking. . . From one hungarian to another, Viszontlatasra. God Bless each and everyone.

  • Aunt Margaret will always be within our hearts.
    I will always cherish the beautiful memories of her and our phone calls. Her last words to me that I will cherish forever were ” I love you, Michael ”
    With love and remembrance.

  • To the Morvai Family,
    Please accept our sympathies and prayers for your loss.
    The Ron Nelson Family

  • Margaret was one of my first bosses at United of Ohio. Being young and new in the business world she took me under her wings and helped me learn. She was so caring and kind I will never forget her. So sorry for your loss.
