  4. I always looked forward to seeing Margo when I came to town for the summers. I would take my son to the Sugar Shack for ice cream and to pick out a toy. One time she ordered him a special toy and held it until we got there the next summer. Pretty special lady. I will miss seeing her smiling face. My prayers of comfort are with her family and friends.

  5. My prayers and thoughts go out to Margo’s family. My memories of Margo go back to high school, I remember thinking that she was just beautiful! Many years later whenever I would come to Greybull to visit, a trip to the Sugar Shack was a given. My dad always said that Margo’s chili was the best he’d ever had. I will remember her smile and always appreciate how genuinely pleased she was to see me. Margo was just a very decent person.
