Margaret was truly a one of a kind and special lady. Wherever she was she filled a room with her love,fun loving spirit and kindness. She always had a positive spin for the most difficult of situations and had the ability to make you smile. Though she is no longer here physically, she has made a tremendous impact on the lives she touched and will never be forgotten. Fly high Margaret and dance with those beautiful angels!
Much love and prayers to her family.

Margaret was my mentor, fellow administrator and dear friend. Her kindness, energy and humor always filled the room. Although she has left us, heaven is a better place with her presence. I'm sure she has on her dancing shoes.

I am saddened by the loss of such a remarkable person. Margaret was a wonderful principal to work with. I still tell people about her office pets, especially the tarantula! Margaret believed in making learning fun and loved all of her students! I will always remember her beautiful smile, her classy attire and her contagious laugh. May God comfort Margaret's family, trusting that she is at peace.

My condolences to the family. I worked with Margaret on many school committees and she made my retirement party a very special event! She had more energy and ideas than any ten people but she offered support if you endorsed a different idea. I have very many happy memories of working with her.

So sad to hear of the passing of a great educator. First met Margaret as she did her administrative internship at ACS. So impressed, I recommend she be hired as an elementary principal! One of my best decisions! Saw Jack and Margaret a few years back in Florida ! So glad we got together. RIP Margaret ! My condolences to Jack and son John!
