I am grateful to have gotten to know Margaret when she lived at Royal Park Place in Zeeland. She was so much fun to visit with. She was feisty but gracious and always called me "dear". My sympathies and prayers extend to her family and loved ones. Sincerely, Cindy Nyhoff, Chaplain

Margaret was a wise, loving, and generous grandmother. I have many fond memories of visiting her in New York and later in Florida, and then of course memories of the many years she lived locally in West Michigan. She was always supportive of my life choices and encouraged me to take risks, be independent, and make a life for myself that I loved. Grandma always took the time to tell us how proud she was of our accomplishments, especially of the families we were making. It meant a lot to me to hear that she saw, acknowledged, and valued my effort as a mom. She shared her love readily, which is a comfort now that she's gone. I'll always remember her quick wit, her generous nature, and the way she inspired me to be my best and live a life of joy.
