  4. What a gracious lady who was an encouragement to me in singing hymns and bringing the Word to the residents at Crestview. Be assured she is rejoicing in heaven, completely healed and whole.

  5. My deepest sympathy to Margaret’s family. I shopped at Varisco, and Chapman’s, so I knew her through the years. I then had the pleasure of working with her at Furrow’s. She could outwork any man that I ever met. I will miss her, but I look forward to seeing her in Heaven. May God give you all Peace and Comfort.

  6. My thoughts and prayers to Ms Margaret’s Family. I’ve been her neighbor at Crestview for the last five years. She was a great inspiration to me and I valued her kind loving friendship. I will miss her….

  7. My sincere Condolences to Ms. Margaret Herzog’s Family. I had the privilege of knowing Ms. Margaret as I’m the Service Coordinator for Crestview Unity, where Ms. Margaret had been a resident. During the last four years I got to know Ms. Margert better and came to know very quickly how strong and very independent Ms. Margaret was, never wanting any fuss made over her nor wanting to be a burden to anyone. Ms. Margaret was kind and appreciative of anyone who she came in contact with. I will miss her Ms. Margaret, but will treasure the time I spent getting to know her.

  8. Our thoughts and prayers are with Margaret and her entire family. Margaret was our ex sister- in – law , a gracious person and a good cook. She showed me how to make the best mashed potatoes ever! I was one of the Godmother’s to John David Herzog. A few weeks ago we had the honor of visiting with Margaret, Paul, Paula and John at the rehabilitation center. It was a very good visit catching up on the past and remembering the many good visits. My husband, Charlie, knew Margaret many years before me. Peace and Love
