Margaret was always a headstrong woman, often doing for others and never turning away anyone that needed help. She would often sit on her front porch talking with neighbors. She loved gardening, mainly planting flowers in her yard, celebrating holidays and decorating for every single one. She loved her grandchildren dearly, and would have done anything for her family had she been asked. Margaret was proud of all her children and grandchildren and loved spending time with them.
The family extends a special thanks to MSA Hospice for the loving care of Margaret during her brief illness, specifically, Tasha and Peggy. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Ramp Committee in care of Rocky Grove Baptist Church of Salley, SC or a charity of one’s choosing.
