  • I knew Margaret from Magellan Aerospace. Lovely lady and always smiling. My sympathy goes out to the family. - Posted by: Charlotte Stairs (Old friend) on: Jul 17, 2020

  • My sincere condolences during this difficult time period with the passing of your loved one. Forty years ago I met Margaret while dating Beth. I knew she was a hard worker, a good mom and while being Beth's boyfriend she was civil and courteous while we dated. Although not being superstitious I had a vision last week while at work that brought her into my thoughts. I trust you approve as I took the liberty to post her obituary on the plant bulletin board hoping some of her long term co-workers past and present might share in the thoughts of the passing of your loved one who worked many years at our plant prior to her retirement. God Bless. - Posted by: Kris Anderson (Beth's friend) on: Jul 16, 2020

  • I knew Margaret for many years. She was totally devoted to service in the church and it’s members. She will live on in our hearts. May she Rest In Peace. - Posted by: Dave Follette (Friend Parishioner) on: Jul 13, 2020

  • Margaret had a faith for her Lord as big as all outdoors. She was uplifted when offering Eucharist to anyone. And my dear friend could sing like a bird. Margaret loved to praise through song. I cannot imagine 17 Wing Chapel without Margaret there. "Be not afraid. I go before you always. Come follow me, and I will give you rest." Margaret knew she was going home to her Lord. May all of Margaret's family be comforted by the knowledge that she is truly in the Lord's Peace. Thanks Be To God. - Posted by: Christina Barrett (friend and fellow Anglican Layreader) on: Jul 11, 2020
