For the past six years she lived with her son in Arizona. Faith was a central part of Margaret’s life. For many years she was a member of the East Side United Methodist Church, where she sang in the church choir. Later, she belonged to The Gate (the First Assembly of God), Hammond, where she was a prayer leader. Margaret also worked as a volunteer at a local soup kitchen. She will be missed deeply, but remembered fondly by her family members
