Margot played an important part in my journey to become a Jesuit priest. My heart is gladdened by the fact that she passed on our founder, Saint Ignatius' feast day.
A few years before she moved into a nursing home, Margot twice graced out dinner table in Arlington Heights with her sharing of witty anecdotes, particularly those about the movie star and former teaching colleague, Richard Widmark. And, on my numerous presentations at retirement homes throughout the Chicago metro area, I read her poetry to the delight of seniors. God is blessing her soul ! ...Mary Alice and Bob Schwarz .
Dear Teresa, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. My brother, Deacon Pete Lagges, was one of your mom's close friends at St. Zachary and often spoke highly of her wonderful and cheerful nature, and her willingness to always be there to help. She will be greatly missed.
God bless you and keep you.
To Teri and John, Your mom was one of the most inspiring women in my life. She cared about me and taught me, and was there when I needed her advice on any topic. Her art hangs in my living room and her memories of Ottumwa live in my heart along with my weekly visits with her. I'll always remember her. Cindy Serrano
Dear Teresa, My condolences on the loss of your mom. It is never easy to lose one's mom, no matter how old or young. I wish you comfort and peace. Jeanne Clark (Niles, MI)
