Marguerite was always such a lovely lady with such a cheerful countenance. As a young mother I would see her regularly in Sullivan's Pharmacy and she was always so pleasant to wait on her customers. I worked with her sister-in-law Vera McSwain and she spoke of Marguerite often, so I felt I knew her. She will be missed
by all who knew and loved her.
