  1. Aunt Margaret you will be greatly missed by all! You taught us to live life to the fullest and cherish each moment! You are my role model and hero!

    With deepest sympathy,

  2. I only met you once, and sorry to say it was through my late husband, Richard. Apparently, his late mother was your ‘sister’ , Irene Lambert, married to Earl Burbott.
    My son would like to know the well guarded ‘secret’ of his grandmother Irene Burbott. Was she or was she not Margaret’s sister? Why the big mystery? Shame on all of you. katherine shaw burbott
