  3. Aunt Margaret was truly one of the kindest, caring, most loving person. Thoughts of her smile, quiet personality and easy laughter will always bring a smile to my face. Much love to her family, Love John.

    • Margaret lived the love of Jesus! She was a faithful, caring, encouraging friend for my mom for so many years, and shared her friendship with so many others, including me. She nurtured that gift of loving friendship in her children, so our families have had a special bond. Her warm sense of humor was delightful. She has so many treasures laid up in heaven from all the generous ways she invested herself here. I cherish your family and pray for peace and comfort as you rejoice over a life well lived! Love, Connie (Blum) Bibee
