Margaret and Alfred enjoyed their horses and rode in many horse shows and riding clubs. They farmed near Horseshoe Bend and in Emmett. She had a great love of animals and always had a pet cat. Margaret has lived at Plantation Place the last eight months where she had many friends and was treated as she said, "Like a queen." Our gratitude goes out to all on the staff there who have been so kind and compassionate to her. They made her life a joy and helped her show her sense of humor and love for people.
