Even though I have not seen Margo for many years, I always remember what a fun loving and sweet person she was. It is heartwarming to read the remembrances of those who knew her in more recent years, and to know what a special person she was. My sincere sympathy to her family and all her friends.

Margo was an amazing lady, a friend to so many, and a fabulous volunteer! She never met a project that she couldn't tackle! Words can not express how much I will miss her. May you rest in peace Margo, and check in on us from time to time.

I am so sad to hear of Margo's passing. She was a one of a kind wonderful person. Her family and work family were so important to her. No matter what was going on she always still had a pithy comment to make on the situation that made me laugh. She was a very caring person and a great coworker to me. I always marveled at her thoughtfulness. I have many great memories of enjoyable moments together. Thank you for that and for all you gave to so many.

Margo was an incredible person, amazing friend, fantastic cook and "loved her home nieces to pieces" she would share her Ashley adventures, sleepovers and projects with such pride and excitement. She enjoyed an opportunity to make pot scrubbies, a batch of cookies or an amazing carrot cake, give a ride, sit with a sick friend or help anyone who simply needed a favor. She babysat for co workers and friends when they went on vacation and was so helpful and proud of the service she gave her customers at Bankers Systems/Wolters Kluwer. I was blessed to be her friend and occasional recipient of her help, gracious spirit and kind heart. for the last 25 years. she would turn you on your ear from time to time with something outrageously out of character as well. May you rest in peace Margo, we will sure miss you here.
