Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 28, 1877
Rensselaer County
New York, USA
Death: Jun. 19, 1954
Wayne County
Michigan, USA

Margaret was a very loved Mom and she raised her seven children with a happy heart. The family looked forward to the summer months spent at Kingsville, Ontario, Canada, where she found time to do her winter canning, while the children played along the sandy shore of Lake Erie and the meandering creek at Wigle's Grove. Margaret carried on after her husband died, and her children "kept her close". She was a special lady.

In the early winter of 1930, Margaret and her husband's brother, William Kraetke, and her twin daughters, Marjorie and Dorothy, took a driving vacation to California. They had a stay-over in El Paso, Texas and while there, Margaret sent a telegram to her husband. It was Valentines Day, February 14, 1930 and the telegram said:

"Thinkin a little, Wishin a little, Far off and blue. Hopin a little, Sighin a little, Lonesome for you."

At the time the telegram was sent, Ernest and Margaret had been married 27 years.
