  8. Every year, I think about Margaret on her birthday, October 10th. I decided to do something about it today, to google her to see if I could find a phone number and surprise her with a birthday greeting. I am so saddened to find this obituary notice! She and I worked in the same industry but never really together. We used to have long chats back in the day. I don’t think we ever met in person, but I always considered her a friend.

    My deepest condolences to all of you who lost Margaret more than 2 years ago. I hope your hearts are healing and that have you found some peace.

  9. I just found out about Margaret’s passing today while browsing old friends in Ancestry. I worked with Margaret several years at PMI Mortgage insurance from 1983 through 1994. I lost touch with her after the closing of the San Ramon ‘pool’ insurance office in June 1994. She came back to PMI years later and I had a nice conversation with her in the lobby of the new PMI office in Walnut Creek a few years before I left PMI and again at one of the PMI Holiday parties. She was invited to my home a few times for dinner and brunch when we worked together. She was a very nice lady and I have fond memories of her. I am sorry for her loss and condolences to her son, Phillip.
