Margaret! It has been many years since we last saw each other however I have heard only wonderful things. I know you have been a BLESSING to the family; a strong pillar for "all". How you endured what you did is remarkable. You only grew stronger; an example for everyone.
I have heard of you dedication to the Christian Community over all the years. Your dedication to the Lord Jesus & His joy reflected in your eyes! You now can rejoice with all those who waited for you! DANCE my friend, Margaret, DANCE!!!

So very sorry to hear of Margaret's passing, she welcomed us to Whittaker St 19yrs ago with open arms. She made us feel at home, in our 1st home. She was an amazing person and I am blessed to say I knew her. My daughter Mackenzie just loved her and will miss seeing her on the porch. Fly high with the Angel's Mrs. Margaret, because you truly are an angel. My love and prayers to the entire family.

Our friend Margaret was a faithful servant of the Lord in every way. She listened and was sympathetic and laughed with her friends. Margaret was always involved with the community of St. Ronald's.
My favorite memory of her was our trip to Florida. We had lots of time to share each other's stories as we sang, laughed and ate together for two days. Margaret was the perfect traveling partner.
We are blessed that our paths crossed on this journey of life.

So sorry to hear of Margaret's passing. She was a second mother to me growing up. I have wonderful memories as a child on Whittaker Street with her, Lisa, Rae Ann and Terry. It is somewhat comforting knowing they are together again.
Rest in peace, Margaret. You will be missed.

Margaret was one of my most favorite people at the Giacchina and Guzzardo picnics. Always so personable and friendly. My deepest condolences go out to the family.

So very sorry for the loss of your beloved Matriarch. Raising prayers for the family and friends. She certainly loved her children/grandchildren with all her heart.

Margaret is an amazing person. I recently heard a priest say that using the "present tense" is correct, because the deceased person is always with us.
Margaret's faith and strength will always be with her family and her friends.
Let perpetual light shine upon her, and may her soul rest in peace.

Margaret I know you are in a better place, dancing in the clouds! I will miss our chats before catechism and your words of wisdom. I will miss your smile, your laugh and funny storied. I will miss you! Until we meet again, it was a pleasure to have been your friend. Rest in peace

Margaret was by far the strongest person I have ever known. It was that
strength as well as her faith that got her through some of the most difficult
tragedies she had to face. She was a gift from God to all who knew and loved her. He has now come to take her home where she will walk with the angels.

Rest in piece Margaret, rest in piece.

Dear Margaret - You were always the matriarch of the family. You took care
of everyone through thick and thin. Now you can rest my friend. No more
worries, struggles or pain. RIP - You will be sadly missed.

Dear Sweet Margaret, Our family will miss you more than words can express. I will always savor our many discussions and time spent together. I will keep my prayers for Anthony and Brandon.

God Bless you Margaret. Rest in peace my friend!

Just want you to know that you will be missed but I know that your struggles are over and for that I am thankful. Now you can look down on us along with our parents, siblings and daughters. It's a hard road for me to loose the love of my life and my eldest and youngest sister all within 5 short years. The best is knowing you all will have a party and wait for the last puzzle piece.

It was a privilege having you as my big sister, Love you always.

Margaret was a true friend to soo many. She had a heart of gold. Margaret suffered more than many, yet always tried to keep it hidden. She will be remembered in my daily thoughts and prayers. Enjoy being with God. You deserve it.

Heaven will be lucky to have her. Her faith kept her strong and did so much for everyone. I was so lucky to have her in my life.
