Some of Margaret’s final statements reflect the essentials of her life on earth believing “that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared to what is to follow. For me to live is Christ and to die is gain. I am eager to know and do his will. I have great peace of heart to know that I am where I am supposed to be.”
A celebration of her wonderful life will be in November, at Victory Baptist Church, 610 W. Alto Road. More information will be shared closer to that time.
In lieu of flowers, the family encourages you to please send memorial contributions to Child Evangelism Fellowship or Victory Baptist Church. Envelopes will be provided at the mortuary and also at the church.
Above all else, Margaret would want people to know, “The best is yet to come. Are you ready to meet Jesus?”
