Margaret was a sweet, kind, and generous lady......she often invited me to join the family for lunch after church at Ebenezer my opinion, she was a model Christian Mom to her children as well as a faithful & devoted member of her church. She always made me feel like I was a member of the family.....often inviting me to lunch, or dinner, and sometimes my favorite dessert, strawberry shortcake! During these last few years, while she was confined to 24 hour nursing care, I still enjoyed stopping in with Elaine for a short visit.......she seemed to recognize me. I will certainly miss seeing her. Praise God for this faithful Christian woman.
