  1. I will see your smile, hear your laughter and remember our conversations both historical and hysterical whenever I am at the museum. You made even the dullest activities at the Historical Society fun. It was my privilege to have known you.

  3. Visits to the theatre will never be quite the same again, one musketeer will be missing. And when we go out for dinner, who will choose and pay for the wine now? I will miss your keen mind and sharp wit and l will miss my friend!

  4. Life as we know it has to end. That is the fact of it. It is what we do with our life that really matters. Margaret lived a full and interesting life, doing what she loved. Whether it was tending to her garden or the port fairy historical society or spending time with her family. She was an inspirational lady who will be sadly missed. RIP Margaret
