Margaret was a beautiful lady with an equally beautiful heart who poured into others. We are wrapping her loved ones in prayer.
Margaret will be remembered with so much love and sweet friendship, a true blessing to all who knew her. Rest in peace, and blessings of Heaven, Dear Friend.
May peace be with all of you. Margaret was such a friendly person and seemed to care about so many. Even though I only knew Margaret through Dick I felt like she was a good friend every time I got to be with the two of them. She is at peace now and out of pain. My prayers are with you all. Peace be with you.
As one of Margaret's "kids" from the daycare years, many of my earliest and fondest memories are of Margaret and the house in Mt. Prospect. I am so sad to hear of her passing, but she touched many hearts and we'll carry on her memory. Our Prayers are with your family.
Margaret's generous spirit lingers with all who knew her. I hear her laugh and treasure the memories. Her legacy of love and compassion for others is one to envy and follow. God be with you during this difficult time.
Margaret was a beautiful lady with a heart full of love. She will be greatly missed by so many.
Blessings to the Bosold family as you grieve the loss of this remarkable woman.
I’m so sorry for your loss. Margaret was a wonderful and caring person who definitely led a remarkable life.
Dick, I am so sorry for your loss. You and your family will be in my prayers. I feel fortunate that I got to meet and talk with Margaret a few times through the years. She was a wonderful person.
Our most heartfelt condolences to your Dick and to all your children and grand children. The friendship we shared with you Dick and with our dear Margaret has been a long and enduring gift to us. We are currently out of the country but we intend to be at the funeral to celebrate Margaret's life.
