Margaret was a classy woman who loved to dress, with an amazing personality and smile that could light up any room. She loved to listen to music and dance (She could drop it like it’s hot with the best of them). She would keep you laughing with her quick wit, and boy, did she love those Green bay Packers “Go Pack Go”. Margaret really enjoyed taking road trips with her family, fishing and cooking soul food.
