    Sorry to hear of the passing of Aunt Margaret, I have memories from when I was little of our family taking a “ride” and going to see Aunt Margaret and Uncle Walt and the family when they lived just outside of Greenville (we lived in Rockford), I remember there being horses I believe, and a tire swing. I ran into Aunt Margaret on Sunday after church when I stopped at KFC for lunch, I was sitting at my table with my four children, and kept thinking, I know that lady, and then I remembered….Aunt Margaret, I called to her and she smiled, she said that she thought I was my mom (Pauline), we had a short conversation and filled each other in on the family, she said she was living in an apartment at the time. Sorry again and blessings to you all.
    Sheri Knipp, daughter of Elzie Knipp (brother to Margaret) and Paula Kelly
