We will be Celebrating Margaret’s Life at a later date at Celebration Community Church in Dillsburg, PA.

Miss Margaret had a strong love for her children as well as other’s children and all people.  Her love showed as she was always cooking meals for the sick, shut-ins and her family.  Her greatest desire was to see all people come into the knowledge of Jesus as their Savior.  She wants her service to be a celebration, not a mourning.  So, she has requested no dark clothing.  THINK BRIGHT LIKE THE LIGHT OF HEAVEN.

Memorial contributions may be made to her church- Celebration Community Church, 1048 S Mountain Road, Dillsburg, PA 17019
