Words cannot convey how deeply I share your grief. Margaret was such a special person. She touched so many lives in a profound, positive and giving way that she can never be forgotten. Her desire to learn was a breath of fresh air and I always enjoyed teaching her math. She loved her math and always wanted to be challenged and for a teacher, well, let's just say, that's what it's all about. I will miss Margaret's smile, her wonderful sense of humor and all our fun chats during home instruction. I am so sorry for your loss. Donna, Chris and Joe, I will keep you in my prayers. May you find peace in the fact that Margaret is no longer suffering and is looking down from heaven with her beautiful smile! With deepest sympathy, Corinne Isak

Margaret was one of the most wonderful people I have ever met. No matter if things were bad or good, she always had a smile and warmth that showed how special she was. She touched so many people and I feel fortunate to have known her and the Walling family. There is comfort knowing that Margaret is at peace and no longer suffering. She will always be in my heart and prayers. I wish Margaret's family and friends, and all of us who cared for and about her, strength and peace at this time.
