Marguerite was such s blessing in my life. She was always kind and happy. She sent my children birthday cards every year with a philosophical note always included. She will be missed. Peace to her family.

Kenny & Joanne, Carl and I have missed your Mother for sometime now but we are glad she is at peace. Hard to lose a parent but when they have lived long full lives it makes you get through it. We won't be able to be with you at service, Carl's in the hospital,(not serious) but our hearts, thoughts and prayers are with you all. We loved your Mom. She loved my Mom!! Bet they are together just catching each other up on neighborhoods gossip! Much love, Carl and Jeanne

Joanne, We are so sorry to hear your mom passed. We know how much she meant to you. You were a great daughter and certainly a blessing to her. It showed in all the great pics you've posted of the 2 of you. Take care of yourself ok. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
