She enjoyed travel, visiting parts of the U.S., Europe, her farm cottage and especially visiting the state of Maine. She took pleasure in quilting and especially sewing; creating dresses and clothing for her children. In her later years, Margret would remind you that, ”she is a nurse” and not “was a nurse”. But most of all she will be remembered along with her husband, for the example she set in living and the affection she shared with others.
