She is also survived by her sister-in-law, Jerry Swann, and a special friend, Barbara Holmes.

We would like to give a very special thank you to the wonderful staff at Kitty Askins Hospice Center for the love and care it provided for Margaret during her final days. Simple words cannot express our gratitude. Also a special thank you to the caregivers on the 500 hall at the Brian Center, who cared for Margaret over these past months.
