    I deeply saddened by the passing of Ms. Margaret. My heart aches for her family. I worked with Ms. Margaret at Dungarvin Ohio and always enjoyed time spent with her. She cared for the clients she worked with as if they were her own family. She had a heart of gold and a personality to match! May she rest in peace with our Heavenly Father.

  5. Rest In Peace Miss Margaret until we meet again.

    I really miss the Matriarch of our family and my dearest cousin and friend. Margaret led a life that we should all emulate – she was kind, caring and a hard worker. She never gave up trying to help others, even when she was experiencing illness herself. She loved her entire family and never met a stranger. The entire family was richly blessed to have her with us for 81 years. See you later, Cuz.
