Margaret loved interacting with customers who enjoyed her serving breakfast, lunch, etc. She passed on life’s lessons in faith, ethics, integrity, and enjoying simple pleasures. The inner quiet strength, and her gift – a capacity to remain positive – were immeasurable. Her daily accomplishments rewarded by enjoying her “one” cigarette per day, relaxing on the couch.   She lived to and loved dancing at Moseley’s on the Charles.
