Margaret was a joy to all who crossed her path. Obstacles in life never swayed her sense of humor nor grace. She was a phenomenal cook and baker known for her cinnamon rolls. Her family was her passion and after raising her children she often took care of her grandchildren. At the family vacation home in Wisconsin, she and Bob taught the kids to fish and instilled the love of the outdoors.
