We knew Margaret for 28 years, and throughout the entire time she was a wonderful person. She would babysit our kids when they were small, listen to our plans and problems, she even accompanied Jann to the Order of Eastern Star meetings. She and Pete were always there when we needed them. We will always remember Margaret and we will miss her.

I remember Margaret from very early on in my childhood with very fond memories. She was always so nice to us kids and I do remember her and Pete picking us up from school and babysitting us from time to time. I also remember being excited about going over to their house for visits. I was always impressed how sweet she was and how well she got along with different types of people. It was always interesting to hear about the jobs she had in Denver and her experiences through life and also her trips to Hawaii and all over the place often by bus. She was a wonderful person and will always be remembered with fondness and warmth.
I am so sorry to hear of Margaret’s passing. We loved having her come to Central Church’s Chapel service at Altera. She loved the old hymns. She was a delight to talk to, quite sharp. Thank you for sharing the flowers at Altera. I see them every day when I go in to see my mom.
I have known Margaret for 24 years and will always remember her for her kindness and her warm heart. She will be greatly missed
