Margaret lived a selfless life always taking care of others before herself. Her empathy for anyone who was in need truly is inspiring. She held her religion dear to her heart and was not afraid to let that be known. She touched many lives during her working career while at Lowe's Home Improvement, Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department and most recently Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. Anyone who knew Margaret should consider themselves truly blessed. From the moment she came into our lives, we referred to her as "Margaret Ann part of God's plan." Although our time with her may not have been as long as we would have liked, we are forever grateful to have been part of her family. Although Margaret did not have an easy life, she held her head high and led a fulfilling life spending her free time enriching others. She held "Maw Maw", racing, watching the Carolina Panthers play, and spoiling her dog, Nikki with McDonalds dear to her heart. Just knowing who Margaret was has made many of us want to become better people. In true Margaret form, she did not want her friends and family to grieve for her but to celebrate her life, as she knew her faith and knew where she was going in the end. We invite everyone to share stories or fond memories of Margaret and the impact she had on your lives. We offer our condolences to everyone for the loss of such a beautiful person.
Graveside services to celebrate Margaret`s life will be held 11 a.m. Saturday, June 27 at Evergreen Cemetery "A Quiet Place" in Belmont with Rev. Eric Lively officiating.
