I remember my mom Lois taking me over to the farm with her. I liked going in the barn to see the cows. The draft horses were my favorite. Margaret was always so kind to me.

My sisters and I have such good memories of Margaret and all the Krieg family. We spent many days and evenings together. Margaret was always so kind and raised her children to be good and courteous people. She is proud watching over them. My Mother thought the world of her and I hope they are together again.

Aunt Margaret was an amazing woman full of love and stories. I would always go see her when I made trips home. I know she is looking down with a warm heart and smiling seeing how much she was truly loved.
