Margarita never met a stranger. She was loving and had a heart of gold. She would give you the shirt off her back. She loved helping people. She was such a character. Those that knew her, knew she was funny, crazy, loud, and never sat still. She loved Jesus, her children, and family very much. She also loved bingo, going to the game rooms and her Chihuahua, Princess. She was one of a kind. Margarita will truly be missed very much.
