    I want to let you know, that I thought the world of Margaret. She was a wonderful and caring woman. She brought so much to the VFW. I will miss her. Love District 4 President VFW Auxiliary Weezie Burrell.

  • She will be missed by many. A grand lady.

  • Margaret taught me so much! She was 91 when I met her, but that did not slow her down. Well, maybe a little bit, but she was a force to be dealt with and I adored her. She apologized once for being bossy, but I loved this about her. She spoke her mind and told you exactly what she thought. There was never any guessing what Margaret meant when she spoke. Always kind and so very wise. I will miss her very much.

  • One time, I said “I want to be you when I grow up.” Margaret looked at the floor and said “Well, you’re going to have to be yourself, because I’m taken.” She just had so many great words of advice.

  • My family met Margaret at the Mesa VFW when we moved to Arizona in 1981. She was a spectacular woman who had no problem speaking her mind. We all loved, liked, and respected her so much. May the good Lord bring comfort to her family and friends.

    This too shall pass. I remember the kindness she would behave.
