She was also a great-grandmother to Lauren and Jacob, who also have many fond memories of spending time with her. She also has a great-great granddaughter, Alayna, who always brought a big smile to her face whenever she saw her. Margaret will forever be remembered by her family as a loving, kind, Christian woman who always put her family first.
