  1. I served with Sister Margaret for 5 years at St. Mary’s, Glenshaw and 10 years at St. Basil’s in Carrick. She was the epitome of good order and creativity! Her bulletin boards would have been in high demand on Teacher-Share websites today. Both of us shared some hard times and the loss of family members during those times. Margaret talked very lovingly of her family members, including the in-laws. Most of all, I will cherish those months that I spent at the Provincial House recuperating from my awful fall. Margaret never missed a day, sometimes twice a day, helping me pass the time by wiling me with community stories and adventures of her large family. Margaret loved the Old Testament and frequently had the children act out the stories. What Margaret taught, the kids learned whether they wanted to or not. What a wonderfully talented woman!

  2. Sister Margaret is my Great Aunt. And boy was she great! I have such fond memories of her including her tours of the classrooms she taught in. She was so excited an proud to take us around the school. She also taught me how to macrame and was so patient and loving! She will be in my heart always. Thank you to all who took such wonderful care of her and loved her!

  3. My aunt, Sister Margaret, was a wonderful woman and a true inspiration for her devotion to God and the Sisterhood. I loved her and will miss her very much, but her wish was to never reach 100 years old, so I am grateful to God for granting her wish! A special “thank you” to Sister Wilma for being such a wonderful friend and caregiver to Sister Margaret; to the nursing staff at St. Joseph Center for taking such good care of her; to Sister Marlene for such a beautiful memorial; and to all the Sisters of Divine Providence for the role you played in Sister Margaret’s life! God bless you all — I look forward to seeing you on a future visit to the Mother House. Roseann

  4. Sister Margaret taught me in 3rd and 4th grades at St. Mary School in Herman, PA. She was an excellent teacher who was very fair in her dealings with her students. She continued to nurture my desire to become a sister and a teacher. I have always been proud to have had Sister Margaret as one of my teachers! May she now rest in peace with our God!

  5. We had such a wonderful time with Sr. Margaret at camp! She was a joy and a love. We would call her and Janet the “Golden Girls”. Both gems!

  6. My sympathy to Margaret’s family.
    I have wonderful memories of my third and fourth grade teacher,
    Sr. Flavia at St. Mary’s Shool in Herman, Pa. If my memory is correct it was 1948-1950. May God reward Margaret for the countless students that she taught. Sr. Nancy Schnur

  7. My sympathy to the community and her family at the loss of Sr. Margaret. Her many years of faithful service are surely now being rewarded. May she intercede for the community and country from her new life.
