Memories Timeline


  1. candleSweet Margie. You were one of a kind! A rare Gem and will be forever missed. We love you forever. Rest in eternal peace.

  2. candleWe are so sorry to learn of the passing of Margaret. She was my sister’s neighbor on the Lower East Side. She was funny, engaging, friendly and always a class act. Each time I saw her she had a beautiful smile on her face and a kind word to say. What more can we ask of a fellow human being: to be kind to all. I believe she has earned her wings and pray that God will allow us to meet again in the great eternity–where there is no pain or sorrow. To the family please know how loved your mom was by folks from all walks of life. She was a special person. Lean on God during your journey through this valley. He will bring you through. We are saddened because we won’t be able to see her but to be absent from the body means she is present with our Lord. In sympathy.

  3. Aunt Margie, I will miss you forever. You took care of me when I was an infant and I could always come to you for advice from my youth to adulthood. I will miss visiting you at the donut shop, the phone company, and after school at the bread store. Rest in peace you will always be in my heart.

  6. Mom,
    I think back to when I first met you, Ed and I were just kids. You said “you need to learn to cook for my son.” For 25 years you shared your cooking skills and taught me how to care for our babies; your granddaughters, Olivia, Sophia, and Sarah. You made us all laugh so hard with your life stories. We played pokeno into the wee hours of the night. You were always a fearless woman who never took from anyone. You we’re always so giving even when you had nothing to give. I know you were looking forward to moving to Florida and we had so much fun last year looking at houses with you. We will miss you terribly.

    Love your daughter in law,
