One of Margaret’s greatest loves was being a grandmother, beginning with her granddaughter Lily and followed by Rory, Matthew and Samantha. She was a unique woman who loved gardening and reading. She had a career as a teacher in public and private schools and could bring out the best of students who others may have given up on. She felt strongly about the importance of reading and loved novels and encouraging her grandchildren to read. Visits with Grandma included being in the garden and baking and a unique game called ’sweep the kids’. Family was important and rooted in her rural farming upbringing and strong faith. She had a good life and enjoyed the simple things in life. Margaret brought joy in to any room she entered and she was simply loved by many.
