Margaret devoted her life as a loving mother to her three children and was so proud of them and their families.

Margaret accompanied her husband to many Masonic, Grotto, Shriners and American Legion events and she was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star.
Margaret and Wayne were faithful members of Penfield United Methodist Church. Everything Margaret was and did embody a Christ-filled life. She served on the board of the church preschool and was their treasurer for many years.
Margaret was an integral part of her grandchildren’s lives and loved doing jigsaw puzzles and playing card and board games with them as they grew older. They adored her as did her great-grandchildren. She cherished them all.
Margaret saw and lived through so many changes in the world in her 99 years. She remained steadfast as she embraced and accepted it all with grace. She was thrilled to take part in new experiences with her grandchildren whether she was tasting exotic cuisine for the first time or riding on an antique tractor in a parade at age 98. Margaret was witty, active and vibrant up to the time of her death.
