Margaret was a true Texan. Anytime you went through San Antonio you had to get off the freeway and go by the Alamo. We had a lot of great road trips.

John T. Sullivan, the youngest brother and the only one to survive her and his family will miss her very much. We have missed her for years, since she chose to make Dallas her home years ago. We would have liked Margaret to live close by to share our lives with her more intimately. We are, however, very grateful that she had a close, loving family in Dallas, her family of choice. We extend our condolences to her Dallas family and friends. You were her pride and joy. Her wish was to be with you for a last goodbye. In honor of Margaret, the family asks that you take a vacation and enjoy a great meal with others. These were her favorite past-times and she believed everyone should do the same.

Margaret will be truly missed. She was quiet and yet so observant. She was dedicated to her work and enjoyed her retirement. While we will miss her very much, I hope she is rejoined with her loved friends and family who went before. Goodbye, Margaret. It was great to know you.

Our condolences to Margaret's family. I worked with Margaret cleaning her apartment with my son. We took care of her for over 20years, she loved to cruise around and look at different stores.We traveled over texas meeting new places, visiting her family and enjoying good food as she loved. She was family. Margaret never forgot about my kids every year on their birthdays she would always buy them a cake and delicious desert. She will be missed! We will miss you dearly Margaret.

Margaret loved good food. Maybe she had better taste buds than others. Margaret loved to travel. Why travel? Good and bad can happen when you travel. She never believed bad can happen. I will miss her.

I want to express my sincere condolences to the family of Margaret. She was a dear friend and co-worker with me at the Texas Employment Commission Richardson where I was employed for over 22 years before retiring in 1999.

Sincerely, Jim Lunney

My deepest condolences to Margaret's family in the loss of your sister and aunt. I worked with Margaret over 30 years and she talked about her brothers and their families often. Jennifer, you were the only girl and a constant joy to her. We who worked with her also got to know you. She was a helper of people, loved to travel and see the world and was a good friend. I pray that she is resting peacefully enjoying being with her parents and brothers and patiently waiting until the full circle of family is together again.

I both worked with Margaret and am a member of the birthday club. Margaret was soothing to be with. She always had cogent observations on our personal lives and the world at large. We love and miss her.
