    I worked for Margaret in Woodinville, and knew her through her friendship with my sister, Jane West. She was always such a positive, happy person. I admired her ability to take her physical hardships in stride and continue living with zest! She is gone too soon. My sincere condolences to her family.

    The Shelton family were already living in the house across the street from me in 1973 when I moved here. They were awesome neighbors and always fun to be around. The famous garage sales were a hoot. I always enjoyed Margaret. She was always kind, fun and full of life. My heart is sad and I pray for the family for their loss. Love and hugs.

    The Shelton family lived across the street from me when I moved in to my house in 1973. They are a loving family show would do most anything to help if you needed it. Margaret was a kind loving young lady. She treated everyone with kindness and smiles. I am saying lots of prayers for the family and friends loss. While it’s hard on everyone I think God has other plans for her and it will be good. Love you all!

    I lost more than a sister-in-law, I lost a dear friend. Margaret, we lost you way too soon. I’ll miss your laugh, your loving, generous and care-free spirit. My kids are so lucky to have had such a devoted and loving Auntie like you. The times spent on the lake(s) are some of our best memories. You were always such a gracious, kind host when we bombarded you at your home – ready to play in the sun and water! I know the kids will miss your French toast – it was their favorite!! I want to thank you for the years of friendship, for your warm and caring ways. I will miss you. I love you.

    Dear Margaret –
    I first met Margaret while working at EvergreenHealth. Over the years, Margaret, Nancy and I formed a warm friendship, meeting regularly for weekend brunches. It was during this time I got to know the kind and gentle, but determined spirit that was Margaret. I admired her sense of adventure, independent nature and positive view of life. I miss her greatly!
    Love you, Margaret, my friend,
    Sally Eastey

    I can’t believe you’re gone. I was going to call you last week to catch up and go to lunch.

    I worked with Margaret for many years at Evergreen. She was always so sweet and so composed even in difficult situations. We would go out to dinner with other co-workers even after she left Evergreen and she was always a sparkling personality to be around. We were planning on traveling together after we retired. I will miss her.

  • Larry R Harper says:

    I am saddened and stunned to hear of Margaret’s passing, and I found out only today, February 4, 2020. We worked together at Woodinville Evergreen Medical Group for 15 years. She was a wonderful, kind person. I will miss her greatly.
    She made the world a better place. God Bless.
