  • What a long and happy life she has had! We are thankful that she has passed into the loving hands of our savior and will continue to watch over the family. Do not be sad – be grateful for the long life and wonderful memories!

  • Dearest Mom….I will miss you forever. You were my best supporter, always there for me, always happy to cheer me, always happy to help in any way. I have so many wonderful treasures that have your heart print on them. Life will be a little less bright now that you are gone. 95 years is a long time, but still not long enough. I will think of you every day, always with so much pride. God keep you and bless you. I send you my love…Your daughter, Jo Ann.

  • We are so sorry to hear of Margaret’s passing. With deepest condolences for your family, Linda and Joe.

  • Dear Mom, you had a long and beautiful life and I am so happy for those years for you and that you shared them with your perfect love, our stepdad, Don. I was not able to share so many moments with you these last decades. Distances can steal all those wonderful special times and a phone call or occasional visit can never replace those precious day to day moments.
    I will miss you. I am proud to call you my mother, your talents, creativeness and beauty set a high standard for me and I doubt I will ever reach your standards.
    I will not cry for you because I know you are in a place so beautiful and wonderful and this separation is only temporary, God has promised us eternal life and that we all will be as angels and now you are a beautiful angel for all eternity.
    Watch over us, your daughters and maybe some how in some way you will be able to send us a little sign that you are with us always.
    Love to you forever mom,
    your daughter Judy
