Aunt Peg you are going to be missed greatly. There is no one in this world who can take care of a garden like you. I will always treasure our visits and the wonderful flowers we always took home with us. Cousins, you were all very lucky to have such a wonderful mother. Now she is heaven with your dad and my folks, and I’m sure there is a garden for her to tend too. She will be missed. Love, your cousin Annie

Dear McGuire Family,

You are in our thoughts and prayers. No one ever mentioned your mother”s name without always commenting on what a wonderful woman she was. She will be missed by all. Heaven now has another special angel.

We will never watch another Syracuse basketball game without thinking fondly of her.

With love and sympathy,
Susan & Steve Ruppenthal

Kathy and Peter: We are so very sorry for your loss. Your Mom and Dad were two of the first neighbors we met when we moved to Venezio. Please accept our sympathy to all of you family.

Condolence from Valerie Harris on June 26th, 2013 3:08 pm

Dear family,
I was a neighbor of Margaret’s and a gardening friend. It always gave me lots of pleasure to walk my dog past her property to see what was in bloom, and it was an added bonus when she was there and we could chat. What a gracious lady. Always smiling and welcoming. She often would speak to me about joining the funeral choir at CTK. It seemed to give her great pleasure. I can imagine Jesus inviting her into heaven and saying, ‘Welcome, good and faithful servant’. May God bless her and you all. Valerie Harris

Condolence from Jackie & Mike Robinson on June 27th, 2013 3:56 am

Larry and the McGuire Family,
Oh the flowers our Moms shared over the years! When we think of them now it will always be in the best garden ever. We’re so sorry for your loss and wish we were closer to offer a hug.
With sympathy to you and your family,
Jackie and Mike

Love and prayers to all of you. I have many memories of Aunt Margaret taking us to the pool and sharing laughs with her sister and my grandma Betty. May she rest in peace.

Condolence from Dorothy Lange & Ray Perez on June 28th, 2013 6:41 am

Dear McGuire Family,
Your mother was a remarkable woman who added beauty and joy to many lives. She was my mom’s closest friend and they shared so many fun, lighthearted, and cherished times together. Everyone should be blessed with a friend like your mom. With our thoughts and deepest sympathy.
Dorothy and Ray
