I worked with Margaret at Memorial for a few years before she retired. Last week, I had coffee with another library colleague and we so enjoyed remembering Margaret. She loved the students who frequented her part of the library but she never tolerated cheating when she monitored make up exams. We loved her stories about her family and spike. And she could make us laugh any time any day. When she retired, she insisted that she would just walk out - no party, no tears. And she did. She was loved and will be missed by many who remember her fondly. Kris Brown
