Margaret was a loving hardworking housewife, mother, and a true lover of Jesus. She spent much time reading her Bible and worshiping with her church family at War Ridge Freewill Baptist Church. Margaret’s door was always open to many friends and family who dropped by for a few minutes or stayed a few nights. She was a wonderful cook who frequently shared her delicious meals and many desserts
with those who dropped by, were sick or she felt just needed a cake, banana nut bread or one of her other favorite recipes. Although Margaret’s love, care, strength and devotion will be missed her family rejoices in her confidence as she said many times, “I know where I’m going. You all never have to worry about me”.
Unfortunately, services cannot be as she would have wanted them, a gathering of many loving friends and family members. For the safety of the family and community the funeral service will be private with Pastor Tony Hinkle and Scott Bennett officiating. Grandchildren will serve as pallbearers.
