(Sue Ann) Garcia and numerous nieces, nephews, friends, and extended family members.

Visitation will be from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Monday, March 19th, 2018 at Darling Mouser Funeral Home with a Rosary service scheduled for 7:00 p.m. Monday evening.

    Praying for all of you as you mourn the loss of your mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and sister. I loved Aunt Margaret and remember her teaching me to make Toll House Cookie bars. I have wonderful memories of spending time at youre house in Brownsville, doing homework at the dining room table, playing in the yard, Trick or Treating in the neighborhood, attending Little League games down the street, and of course, trips to the candy store. Your mom was an integral part of my childhood and I so enjoyed visiting her a few summers ago. She will be missed.
    Love to all of are in my thoughts.
    Your cousin and niece, Julie

    Our heartfelt condolences. We are lifting you up in prayer in the coming days, and will remember Margaret fondly. She certainly left her finger prints on this world. " And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away." Rev. 21:14. "My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever." Psalm 73:26.
