Margie was one of the sweetest people I have ever known. I served her at the Homestead and she affected me much more than I thought a resident could. In a way, she felt like an extra grandmother. She always had the biggest smile when she saw me and never failed to lift my spirits. I loved it when she laughed. She was quite witty and had a sharp mind. She was also incredibly independent and perseverant. She would often inquire about what was going on in my life and how I was doing, and I could tell she truly cared. As much as I would love to see her again, I am confident that she lived a full life, never losing her joyous spirit, and is now at peace. I will forever remember and love Margie.
I met Margaret at the homestead at rochester. I worked there the last 4 years. Margaret was always one of my favorites. She always had a smile on her face when she saw me and i would sit down and chat with her every chance i got. I had left homstead in October due to the birth of my first child and never got a chance to come back due to covid. I will never forget you margie! I know i can speak for everyone else at homstead too, we all loved her! Working at a nursing home is one of the most rewarding jobs out there but they never talk about how sad and hard it can be too. I miss you. But i know your there watching me. Rest in peace margie!
I worked with Margie for 3 years at the Homestead of Rochester and am devastated to hear of Margie's passing. Margie was always one of my absolute favorites and she never failed to make me smile. She has been one of the most influential people in my life and I will sincerely miss her. She was the sweetest soul. She will always be loved and remembered by me.
