Margaret was a wonderful, loving lady who cherished her daughter, family, and friends. She always met you with a smile and went the extra mile. She served as a Bladen County dispatcher for many years and worked with the N. C. Forest Service. She enjoyed her work so much that she climbed the fire tower her first day on the job. Margaret will be remembered for always telling it like it was and her grand sense of humor.
