Jim, Rosemary, and Family, We are very sorry for your loss. We got to know Margaret through Rosemary and enjoyed hearing stories about her when we took Rosemary to visit Margaret each month. We learned that Margaret was an excellent cook, a hard worker, a Cleveland Indians fan, a leap year baby, a dedicated wife and mother, and that she loved her family. She will be missed by all who knew her.

RIP, Mom, will never forget all the wonderful things you did for your grandchildren. From supplying all the disposable diapers, to buying groceries, the holiday meals and gifts and, most of all, the love and care of your baking for all to enjoy. We will miss you. Your daughter-in-law, Chris
