Your mother was a beautiful woman from the inside out! She never had a negative thing to say about anyone and was the most gentle, kindest person I knew. My Mom (Eleanore Servonnet) and I would visit her lots after mass at Castor (for she understood how my Mother felt after losing her husband at the same age she had lost hers), and have a little lunch and tea with her. I think she is the reason I love tea! I remember her having the softest hands ever and I could just listen to her for hours for she just had so much wisdom and knowledge. The last year or so I had been meaning to go back to Castor - just to visit her, but unfortunately did not get there. She will be sadly missed by me, but I sure hope she is sitting and having tea with my Mom up in Heaven!!

Margie was a wonderful uplifting spirit who lived the meaning of kindness and caring. It was such an uplifting experience to visit and laugh and share stories with her. I will miss her. My condolences to the family.
