When we first met Margaret, she made us feel like we had known her all our life. She always greeted us with a warm smile and a big hug. After talking to her, you somehow just came away feeling better. Margaret was a very sweet, kind and thoughtful person.

One thing for certain, no one has ever made a better lemon cake.

Blessings to all,

Michael (Raymond Whitaker’s nephew) and Linda Anderson

CandleA beautiful addition to the Gunn family, Margaret was loved by all and we will miss her dearly. Her bright light will shine forever in our hearts and memories. Uncle Raymond was truly blessed to have her in his life. My thoughts and prayers are with all of her family at this time. Susan Green

Such a classy lady with an infectiously beautiful smile. I do not ever recall hearing Margaret speak a negative word about anyone or anything. What a great role model that we all could learn from.

Aunt Margaret was one of the kindest people I’ve ever known. The last several years, I didn’t see her very often. When I did see her, she always had that beautiful smile on her pretty face. She will be truly missed.

Margaret, none of us were ready for this. You said you would try and make it to 90 and almost did. You will be greatly missed by many. I will miss being able to run by your house and see you anytime. Heaven gained a beautiful angel in a caftan. Lucky them. So sad for us. Love you much.
