Margaret was a loving and devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. She was a fabulous cook and baker, and did many types of sewing and needlework, and was an avid reader. She transmitted her deep faith, and her love of learning, what you learn, no one can take away from you. She was a Sunday School teacher for many years. She was a member of SS. Peter & Paul Orthodox Church, Windber which she faithfully attended on Sundays and Feast Days until she simply couldn't anymore. The family would like to thank the nurses and staff of Church of the Brethren Home, where she resided for the past three years, for their loving and diligent care of our mother.
