    Such a caring and wonderful lady I remember her from my childhood she had love for everybody that had a thirst for knowledge.

    My fond memories of Margaret began as a small child during my regular visits to the library. She was such a special lady. Mike and I send our sympathy to the family.

    My condolences to Shirley, Dave, Jo Lynne and family. What a great lady! On any of my trips to the library, I was always greeted by a smile from Margaret. She had such a great personality that always made you feel welcome, whether at the library or at her home. If I ever got too noisy, one look over those glasses meant, “I know your Mom and Dad.” Very good memories of being around Margaret while growing up, a fond farewell to a great lady.

    It has been a pleasure to call Margaret my friend. She was a kind generous woman. She surely loved her family. She will be missed. Nancy

    I remember Margaret when I was a child, stopping over at her en-laws, Bob & Bertha and I lived two doors down and they would bring their Boston Terrier dog there for Bob & Bertha to watch, which we had a Boston Terrier also. Then when I became an adult, I worked with her at the Library. Over the years I have stopped by so she could see my Boston Terrier dogs that I had. She loved her work and the Frankfort Library!

    Gosh, what a very familiar face! I was so surprised to learn that Margaret died on the exact same date as my father, Dick Grove. My dad & mom, Helen Grove, worked with Margaret at the library & I recall having seen her there for so many years. Well, Happy Homecoming to Margaret & my dad. My condolences to the family. I am so sorry for your loss. Susie Plunkitt
