    You were the “Greatest” A mother hen comes to mind–you always watched over your flock, you always supported your flock, and always was very proud of your flock. Those were some of the best years of our lives, having you be our leader. Thanks so much for the enrichment to us all during our many years of working together. We will miss you, but will never forget all you contributed to so many of us.

    Dear Margaret, I’m thinking of you today and remembering your wonderful years at Mercy San Juan Hospital as our Manager for Pediatrics. You were simply the best and were loved and respected by all. To this day you are still my favorite boss for all times. You were always professional, skillful, compassionate, and a true example for how a nurse, friend and colleague should be. Love You, Karen Schiro, RN

    Margaret was a wonderful head nurse, and I so enjoyed working with her at Mercy San Juan Hospital in the 1970’s and 1980’s. She will be missed, and I am so sorry for your loss.

  • Candy Olson says:

    Margaret was a dedicated nurse and a well respected manager of the Pediatric Unit. She was a wonderful mentor, and will be missed by all of us who were privileged to serve under her. She always greeted us with a smile when we came to work, and made each of us feel appreciated and recognized for the work we did. The leadership you provided left a lasting impression on each of us Margaret, and you will always be remembered with warm and happy memories.
