Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • I am saddened to learn of Margaret's passing; I wish the family comfort in the days ahead. I was fortunate enough to be a student in Radway school for all three terms that Margaret taught there. She was a kind and compassionate person and an excellent teacher. I remember that she organized the students into a choir and we traveled to her parents home to practice as Mrs. Bennett was one of the few people in the area who could play the piano, and actually owned one! That was an exciting day! - Posted by: Harry McKnight (former student) on: Apr 17, 2019

  • Our family wishes to pass along our deepest sympathies to Dan and his children and grandchildren. Margaret has been a lifelong friend, a fellow dairy farmer and a fabulous 4-H leader to our family, So many good memories. Rest in peace. - Posted by: Thelma Blahey (Friend of the family) on: Apr 13, 2019
