She cheerfully helped her husband Bill through a long illness and recovery, and her family with challenges of all kinds. She sought no accolades and considered service to her family and friends as a labor of love and example of her strong Catholic faith. Margaret was born in Highbridge, The Bronx, and moved to Yonkers as a child where she proudly resided for the rest of her life amongst family, cherished friends, and neighbors. She happily spent the last decade as a snowbird among her winter friends at the Royal Coast Condominiums in Pompano Beach, Florida. She was a member of Annunciation Parish for over 40 years, and previously of St. Barnabas, St. Paul’s, and Sacred Heart. Margaret had many great times with friends from Leewood Golf Club, business and family friends from the building industry in which her dad, husband, and brothers worked, classmates from St. Denis, St. Barnabas High School, and Lady Cliff College. Prior to having her family, Margaret was a primary school teacher at St. Peter’s and St. Denis in Yonkers and Greenvale School in Eastchester. Margaret continued her devotion to education by serving on the board of Elizabeth Seton College in Yonkers for many years. Margaret loved people and the human connections we all have with one another. She reveled in the joy of spending time with family and friends. She had a gift for making everyone feel special and finding a “connection” with everyone. Margaret will be missed by all of us for her loving touch, wonderful sense of humor, gift of being great company, and being truer than true. She was our great friend, mom, sister, nana, mother-in-law, aunt, friend, and neighbor. She will be missed dearly by us, but we look forward to the day we will be reunited.
