Over the many years I have known her, Marguerite was kind to all, a loving wife and mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She always welcomed and was so sweet to me over the years, making me laugh almost immediately with her big humorous personality and heart. She will be deeply missed by so many. Time now to fly off to a better place to be surrounded by those waiting to welcome her home.
