Margot was my inspiration. Margot would create magical evenings in her very French, Hebron, Iowa, farmhouse...........from baskets all over the walls, to the freezer in the center of the kitchen from which she pull out shrimp, freshly flown in on her airplane flying in from Phoenix. The table was long, hand made of local wood, the fire blazing, the trunks used for coffee tables, the freshly ironed and startched dust ruffles on the beautifully appointed beds. Style........such style . As she gathered neighbors, Drake/Des Moines leaders, local business people, movers and shakers. Nights to remember. My parents loved to be invited, and I was lucky to be a part of many evenings both on the farm and in Phoenix. Oh the stories they told. The food and magic that seemed effortless from Margot.

She was a legend. Is a legend. We all still talk about our life and times with Margot and Mike. Mike and my father had insane adventures today, both on rivers, and flying in airplanes. Fishing, exploring, Alaska, the Pacific..............farming, trees, all of it.

And she loved to collect. Her phrase, "a little trash-a little treasure". And constant hunt for antiques and art in the antique stores around the state of iowa. She taught me so much.

She is forever in my mind............she will always be larger than life, to me.

To the Augustine Family: My heartfelt sympathies go out to the family and friends during this difficult time. I hope that the promise in 1 Thessalonians 4:14 can bring comfort. Knowing that there's a hope for the ones we have lost in death can be so reassuring.

May the God of all comfort strengthen the family during this time of deep sorrow. Those who pass on, God keeps in his memory because they are precious in his eyes. My sincerest condolences. (Psalms 116:15)

I have known Margot since I was a little boy. Margot was always so kind to me. I remember being up in Pinetop as a young teenager with the Augustines - caddying for Mike - and being back at the cabin - just talking with Margot. She told me stories of what it was like living in France during the war. I have always been so fond of Margot. I remember going camping with the Augustines - I think up near Camp Verde(?) ...the Chiricahuas in Southern Arizona. I remember Bianco! Man, Margot took care of Mike! When my father died - Margot put together and had us all over for a dinner in 1990. She was wonderful! I wished Margot could have taught me French! Au revoir mon ami! John Wogan
