I never knew Margaret when I was at Landstar. I only saw her coming in the break room when I was on break and also saw her going into Jonna’s office. Rest in peace

Joe and Erin, I am so sorry for the passing of dear Margaret. I worked with her at Landstar and she always knew how to make a person smile and laugh. She was an amazing person. Rest in peace sweet Margaret!

Joe, Erin, Karen, Liz and Grace, I am so sorry for your loss. Margaret was the sister I never had. She touched my heart with her “Hello Sunshine!” every time I saw her and she always greeted me with a hug and a kiss – even when she was elbow deep in sugaring donuts. The orchard will never be the same for me without her. She truly blessed my life in so many ways and I was so lucky to call her friend. Rest peacefully, my dear friend. Love you more than you’ll ever know.

We miss our sweet little Margaret, who was a part of our Orchard Family for so many years.
She had an amazing work ethic, great sense of humor and beautiful smile. She will be especially missed by the bakery crew…where she set the donut-sugaring speed bar very, very high, no doubt powered by a bottle or two of Fanta.
Our sincere thoughts and prayers go out to the Doane and Koath Families.

I first met Margaret when she was a member of my Children’s Choir at Dundee Methodist Church. Over many years, I have known her mom, dad and Karen. My condolences to her entire family. RIP
