She always had a smile, that's what I remember most. Always a beautiful smile for everybody. For 81 years that is something! I cannot make it for the service, but Aunt Margaret and her family will be in my thoughts and prayers. - Karen Turner Bogasch

Hi all, I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I won't be able to make it, but I wanted youn's to know one of the memories I remember of my aunt is the way she greeted us with a hug to each person. That was different and it stuck with me. As we all grew older it started to quit, because of one thing or another. Aunt Margaret started something lets carry this on. Joyce (Turner) Ellgen

Dear Cousins: When I think of Aunt Margaret, I can always hear the warmth of her laugh. We grew up in such a loving and wonderful family. I am so grateful she was part of my family and part of my life.
