Upon retirement, she returned to her beloved hometown of DeKalb, Mississippi where she enjoyed volunteering for Civic League and planning the yearly reunion for the Class of 1956, and dancing at Sciples Mills when she could find a dance partner to go with her! Margaret also enjoyed, shopping, sewing, crafts and traveling to spend time with her grandchildren, which were the jewels in her crown.

Milliman, of Shreveport Louisiana, and son, Scott Robinson, of DeKalb; siblings, Francis Jane “Tisti” Price, of Dekalb, Jimmy Key, of DeKalb, and Linda Morphis, of Greenville, North Carolina.

Kathy I'm so sorry. I didn't know until now. Not only was she a wonderful mother, she was a wonderful woman. I consider her a lifetime friend.

Oh my dear friend. I will miss you so. I wish we had lived closer the last few years. We had many good times in Mississippi and Lafayette though. Bless your family. I know how much they loved and will miss you too.
I am extending my sympathies to the family . May you find comfort in the loving promise of God ( Psalm 83:18). The beautified hope for our love ones is in John 11:25.
Thank you for being a good friend.
