Donations may be made in her memory to the

Margo was an adventurous person, charismatic and generous, deeply caring about the people she knew. She had fond memories of growing up in the “house on the corner”, with the sinuous

backyard hedge tree and its sheltering canopy, playtime adventures with her sisters, and joining them each fall to pick up the dropped rotted apples in their backyard and wheelbarrowing them over to the family’s large garden plot, where her favorite vegetable radishes were planted each spring.
