With fond memories of your mom (and dad also.) Being neighbors on 17th street, going to Squaw Bay for lots of fun at the beach in the summers and skiing at lookout in the winters. Our parents shared lots of good times together and always loved to reminisce about the good old days. I remember lots of laughter and joking and story telling. So thankful your mom was able to live long enough to make wonderful memories with the grand and great grands!! With deepest condolences, Susie (Erickson) Finney

Margaret and Jim were good friends with my mom and stepdad, Lois and Raymond Hanson. My wife and I first met them when they all came in a group of 6 or 8 to Europe for a ski holiday in the winter of ‘70/‘71 (I think it was). I was stationed at Hq US Air Forces Europe and we joined the group for several days of skiing at Lech, Austria. Met up with them several times in subsequent years when together with mom and RA. Always enjoyed them...a great couple!

Margaret and Jim gave me one of my most memorable stories I have told often. They contacted me to do drawings for their log home in Ponder Point years ago. She walked into my office first and she proceeded to thump me on the chest saying, "My husband will be here in 10 minutes and I don't want you to listen to a thing he says!" I looked around thinking I was on Candid Camera, or she would then laugh, but she didn't, she was dead serious! Jim showed up and oh the memories of working for them brings smiles to my face. I got to love and appreciate them as a couple. A few months passed and they came into the office on a Monday and Margaret seemed very subdued and was just not her usual perky self. I ask how their weekend went and Jim began to tell me how the log home had caught fire in the basement over the weekend and had melted the plumbing pipes and scorched the floor and almost caught all the logs on fire. I asked how did that happen and he looked over at Margaret and said she had thrown all the linseed oily rags over in a corner when she was finished oiling the logs. End of that conversation. Great couple!!!
