Karen and family,
My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time. What a blessing and achievement to live until the age of 95. Our elders are a “living” history books. I am in awe and amazement of the events they must have seen and the people who have passed through their life. We will never know how many lives were influenced with her commitment to give her time at Sunday School and working with the Girl Scouts. Christ has given us the promise of restoration and resurrection. Trusting in His word will reunite you with her for eternity.
I am Thankful for all the times that I got to visit with Margaret over the last 50 years, and for time in your home, and with Grandpa Redfoot are some of my most memorable days in my life.
Her calming attitude and her love were cherished. I will forever be indebted for her getting me involved with the Church and its Family. She did more to point me the right direction than
anyone in my life. I received unconditional Love from her all of my life. ON my last visit at Greystone, It was just she and I for about an hour, we got to talk one and one and
she and I heard what each of us had to say. I cant say I knew it would be the last time I would see her but I knew that day was coming. Had I known earlier I would have stayed North and been with you all as we celebrate a wonderful, compassionate life. As I was in Erie for the graduation she was so much on my mind, remembering and appreciating every day I had with her, and actually talked abit about her as we were around the campfire. I feel no sadness that I did not see her, as I know Margaret was Perfectly presentable at all times, and I am sure she would want me to remember her as the beautiful woman that she was. I pray for the repose of her soul, and I know that she has gone before me to make a place for me. I have told her often, I am not sure which direction I would have been going if it had not been for her ability to listen and softly point you in the right direction. Someday we will all be together in the Life Everlasting. In Prayer always, Dave
My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I will miss her beautiful smile.
My thoughts and prayers are with you. I will miss her beautiful smile.
I cannot begin to count the times I walked into the offices at First Presby and was greeted in such a fine, gracious manner as that from Mrs. Graham. She always had a smile and a kind word. She was a true lady. God bless her and her family, what great folks.
We were so sorry to hear of Margaret’s passing and also sorry we were unable to attend her funeral and offer our condolences in person. Over the years she worked as secretary at First Presbyterian Church, Bill had the best of working relationships with her. Margaret was a beautiful lady inside and out, and her kind nature was always in evidence as she interacted with others. We are sure she will be missed by all those who knew and loved her. We thank God for her long and fruitful life and pray the Lord will bless you as you remember the many happy times you shared.
Our love to you all,
Bill and Mary Jane
Prayers and sincere condolences to the entire family of Margaret Graham.
I have fond memories of Mrs. Graham at the church. She was a picture of peace and gentleness. I wish I would have been in town Wednesday to attend the service and to visit with family. My prayers are with you.
