    Margaret had a very interesting life and was a very special member of St.James Presbyterian Church. I enjoyed talking with her and was sorry when she needed to leave The Willows which she considered home.
    We enjoyed going to Bellingham Music Club together.
    Farewell to a very dear lady.

    I will always remember Margaret as a friendly and kind soul with so much to give others. I met her while attending St. James Presbyterian Church. She will be missed very much.
