Margaret was a secretary with the VA State Police and served her community by managing the food pantry for Branch”s Baptist Church for almost 25 years. A devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, she was happiest when surrounded by her family. She loved Atlanta Braves baseball and working in her beautiful yard, meticulously picking leaves out of the shrubs with salad tongs and picking up each and every acorn by hand. The fruits of her labor were enjoyed by the entire neighborhood! The family wishes to thank the management and staff of Manorhouse in Short Pump for their kindness and loving care of our mom. The family will receive friends from 2-4 pm on Sunday, June 28, 2020 at Morrissett Funeral & Cremation Service, 6500 Iron Bridge Rd. N. Chesterfield, VA.
