Margaret was our neighbor in Bucyrus until we relocated to Mi. We tried to stay in touch with her and stopped to visit when in Ohio on occasion.She was a very sweet person that loved our dog Tessie,and Tessie loved to go over to visit her.She has always held a place in our hearts and we will miss her dearly. As requested, we will offer a donation to the Humane Society, and are sure that the animals in Heaven will be glad she is there with them, and the Father.Our hearts and prayers are with her family, Sincerely,Dan and Lynn Groth
Margret was our neighbor when we moved to this neighborhood in 1985. We were blessed to have such a wonderful person as our neighbor. She would occasionally carry her cat, Fluffy, outside to see and smell the world. (Fluffy saw the outside world from the security of her arms.) We loved Fluffy too. Throughout spring, summer and fall there was always something blooming in her beautiful flower garden. We sure missed her when she moved to Ohio. She kept in touch with us which we greatly appreciated. She will be missed.
I am so glad her cat, Ginny, has a new home. If she did not, my sister and I would have taken her.
Our heart and prayers are with her family during this difficult time.
