Margaret’s love for cooking was known by all, as she was known as a gourmet cook. She loved a good golf game back in the day and was an avid Red Sox fan. Most of all, she enjoyed her daily scratch tickets!! Margaret also leaves her daughter in law, Ann Fontaine who we would also like to thank for the wonderful loving care she gave our mother in her final days. We would also like to thank VNA/Hospice of Cape Cod for their wonderful care and support!

Per our Mother’s wishes, there will be no service. Burial will be held at the National Cemetery in Bourne with full military honors at a later date. 

Margaret’s final wish was for all to get along and all to buy a scratch ticket in her memory.

Memorial donations can be made to VNA/Hospice of Cape Cod in our mother’s name.
