Margaret was a beautiful, strong, energetic woman who loved life. She was a homemaker and loved spending time with her children and grandchildren. She was an excellent cook who embraced her Italian heritage. She loved cooking pasta with meatballs and baking rolls for family and friends.

She was an amazing mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend in every way. She touched the lives of so many people. She will truly be missed and will never, ever, be forgotten.
