Margaret led a full and productive life. As a young woman, she learned to fly, took a nursing course, traveled to Sweden and the Holy Land.
It was later in life that she began her ministries in Kairos and being instrumental in establishing a half-way home for women coming out of prison.
Mother loved the Lord and witnessed to everyone she met. She had many friends from young to old. Her Sunday School Class and First Baptist Madison were very special to her. She loved traveling and antiquing with her family. Some of her favorite times were spent playing cards and games with her children. She was a member of a bunko club which she greatly enjoyed.
She cherished her two special friends, Linda Edwards and Connie Milner. She will be greatly missed by all. We love you mother.
