When I think of Maggie, I see her scooping Macaroni and Cheese in the old cafeteria and putting stewed tomatoes on top of mine. Bob says he thinks of potato puff in the old cafeteria and always saying to him "Oh Bob" when he made his special requests. She was such a good mentor to me, friend, and confidant. She was a true lady and I never heard her say a bad word about anyone. She was so much more than a cafeteria cook to all of us teachers!! So glad I got to have a long chat with her at the last McComb retirees dinner here at our house. Sympathies to you Tom, in the loss of your partner in life, and sympathies to all your kids who were very special to Bob and I as well. Ellen

Jane and I are so sorry to hear of Margaret’s passing. We think of all the laughs we had with her when we played cards on New Years Eve years ago. She was such a fun person to be around. Sadly Father Time catches up with us all and our bodies start to fall apart. We do know that her faith in the Lord has gotten her into heaven the very second she passed. The angels came and took her by the hand and brought her into the arms of the Lord. She is now pain free and smiling down on all of us.

Sending along my thoughts and prayers to you during this very difficult time. It goes without saying that Margaret’s passing leaves a tremendous void in my heart too for she was an integral part of my growing up next door and always showed a tremendous amount of love toward me and all of the Halstead boys. May you find peace in all of the wonderful memories she left to you each of you. May God Bless you and keep you. We will always love Margaret for the love and friendship she gave to my Mom. RIP Margaret. Love, Keith Halstead
