The only thing Margaret loved more than her family was animals. She was well known to adopt any animal she came across, even if this meant stopping in the middle of the freeway. This is
how she got one of her dogs named “FREEWAY." She was the daughter of a Candy Maker and loved making trays full of homemade candies to pass out to family and friends.
