I was honored to work in a group at Southwestern Bell Telephone that included Marguerite. She was a wonderful person, admired by all who knew her, and had a smile for everyone. A fine lady!

My mom lived on the other side of Marguerite's duplex after her stroke. Marguerite went out of her way to accommodate my mom and her needs. Such a sweet lady! I'm sorry to hear of her passing.
