The family would like to thank the Staff of Haven of Our Lady of Peace Nursing Home, Pensacola, Florida, for the loving care given to Mrs. Greer. The staff and residents of Trinity Court at the Haven loved and supported her during the COVID lockdown and in her final days. There truly are not enough words to express the gratitude the family has for them.

In light of the unusual health climate at the moment, the family held a private celebration of Margaret's life and legacy. Friends are asked to continue this celebration by remembering the significant impacts that she had on their lives.
