My condolences to the family and close friends. I retired from FFC. I got to work for Margaret in activities and from the office. She kept us on our toes. Loved to tell us stories. She was a great person.

Margaret was the sweetest and most kind person anyone could know. We were neighbors on the farm for many many years. Remember helping her and John milk sometimes. Also spent alot of time with Sandy at home and on the bus. She had such a way with words. She will be missed.

I enjoyed getting to know Margaret when she and my mother (another Margaret!) were both in the Courtyards. Both of them had been farm girls, which gave us lots to talk about, and I loved finding out where her little license plate (Here Comes Trouble!) came from. She was a lively and funny person, with a deep kindness for me and Mom. I hope the good memories of your life together give you joy and comfort.

Margaret was a great example of how to live life. She always had a smile even during the final phase of her life. Thankful that she is now in heaven with John and her faithful dog Fred with a fully restored mind.

As my sister stated in an email, Margaret was the last of the Poop group to pass away. Im sure the card table is set up and they are all playing euchre. Oh the memories that Margaret, Opal and Frances made for their childrenthe Poop group two. Sandy, your mom passed away on My 73rd birthday. Wish we were able to be with you in your time of sorrow. I will be with you in heart and mind.

When my boys were little, Margret wanted to give the boys a cat so she told them first before letting me know. What was I supposed to say? So after church we went to Margrets to pick up the cat. When the boys were older and driving they would stop by her house and check on her on there way home from school. Im not sure who enjoyed it more Margaret or the boys. Rest In Peace my dear friend.

Margaret was by far one of my favorite ladies while growing up as a kid at Hopewell Church! I loved her ornery side and going to their farm for Halloween parties. Her sarcasm, wittiness, and laugh always made me smile and continue to make me smile while I type this. :) I always laughed when she was determined to set me up on a date with one of her twin grandsons. LOL She was such an inspiration to me, and I am saddened not to be able to pass along my condolences in person during this social distancing. Prayers to fill your hole of sadness...Betsey (Alyea) Moore
