For Margaret Wood

I have wonderful memories of times spent with Margaret. I am extremely sorry I can not attend her funeral. I will truly miss seeing her!
Esther Lageman

Many, many memories.

Whether Sunday drives, picnics, camping, or other gatherings, the Schwartz and the Wood families share so many wonderful memories. Margaret was a good friend to my mom, Marcie, and a fun member of their ladies’ card club. She has left a wonderful legacy. May the angels carry you to heaven Mrs. Wood.
