Margaret, while a reliable, educated, dedicated fellow employee, to us, she was so much more. Margaret grew to be a dear friend to all of us at B & B. After her well earned retirement, we enjoyed keeping in touch with her about Leroy and the family. Margaret especially enjoyed the B & B Christmas parties at the casino along with all of the B & B Ladies; they even let Wally attend. Margaret will be missed and still remembered in our prayers along with Leroy and the Family she loved so dearly.
