Dearest Ann, Robert and family,
I was so saddened to learn that your dear mom passed away so suddenly. She was a very kind and thoughtful friend. We sat next to each other at meals and enjoyed visiting together at Shorewood Commons. She will be sorely missed by me and many other friends. May your fond memories be a comfort to you and help to keep her spirit alive in your hearts. With my deepest sympathy, Margot Wagner

Marilyn Barlow on Apr 14, 2018

Dear Ann, It was a shock to learn of Margaret's death. We are so very sorry. Your Dad and Mother were our very close and dear friends - since 1964. We will miss being able to think of her out there with you but will cherish our memories of our wonderfully happy times together. Sometime, if you can, will you let us know more than what is in the Tiffin paper. We'd appreciate that. Our best wishes to you and your family. Love, Marilyn and George Barlow

I am sorry to hear of the passing of your mom, she and Dr. Rocks were two of my favorite people associated with my time at Heidelberg and later when I would run into them around Tiffin. Truly the salt of the earth! Dave Wilson "Berg 80"
