We first met Margaret when she was with Harry George when she accompanied him on visits to the Kitchin family( who are dear friends of ours .)/Over the years we saw her many times as she was always in touch with the Kitchin family even after Harry’s demise .She was always in touch for all family occasions and visited them often.
    We remember her as a vital,energetic lady who was beloved by the family and we enjoyed her company very much .
    We send our condolences to her remaining family , Christine and Forbes Brien
