Margaret changed my life in many ways. Fifty-something years ago she set me up (against my will) on a date. That date turned into a marriage which resulted in the children and grandchildren that fill my life with joy today. Margaret knew how to live fully. She walked where others fear to tread. Her passing is a great loss for those of us left behind - but Heaven will be a lot more interesting because she is there.

Robert and Family - my deepest condolence to you on the passing of our beloved Margaret. I feel so blessed to have had the privilege to share time with both of you during our 2016 Highland Park High School (MI) reunion and keep in touch with Margaret afterwards. Margaret and her wit will definitely be missed by all. May you all be comforted by the love and support of friends and family and cherish the wonderful memories and time spent with Margaret.
