Margaretta was a wonderful, kind, intelligent, and talented woman. She was a talented artist and cook. She loved to make clothes and decorate. She was active in her church and her community.
She was a loving and loved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt. She became like a grandmother to me and my sister when we lost ours.
She had a beautiful marriage of 50 years with her husband, Tom who cared for her until he lost his own battle with emphysema just several months before she lost her life to Alzheimer’s.
It is tragic to watch a disease take so much from a person. For her, it was early onset. She was taken too quickly in a struggle that was far too long. I miss her humor, her smile, her laugh. Those stayed until the end.
I want a cure so that no one else has to watch their loved one slowly fade away and so no one has to lose themselves.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
