    Margaret Harrison led an exemplary life, always faithful to the Lord, the Catholic Church and her family. Her integrity and work ethic were rock solid, and she would never compromise her principles. Nor would she shy away from any task requested of her. I remain grateful for her many years of reliable assistance going back to 1977. May she rest in peace in the eternal company of her Lord and Savior.

  4. Roland S Summers MD says:

    Margaret was a joy to know and care for as her doctor; always compliant, with a “dry” sense of humor. My staff and I will miss her.

    To Margaret’s family: Margaret and I go back a long way, but over the years lost track of each other unfortunately. We were classmates at Cathedral School and SVA. I will always remember Margaret as smart as could be, kind, generous, friendly and I never heard her say an unkind word about anyone. My prayers and condolences to her family at this sad time. Wish I could be there for the services.

    To Margaret’s family: It is hard for me to believe that I have known Margaret for over 40 years. i was but a callow youth of barely 21 when my dad died, suddenly, at 46, in 1972, leaving my divorced mom with five young sons. I was the only one over 21, so my dad’s longtime good friend and family attorney, John Kennedy, had me appointed administrator of my dad’s estate, as he died intestate. That saved my family a lot of trouble and expense.

    I made many visits to that interesting old building on Oglethorpe Avenue, bringing checks for him to sign and annual reports to the Probate Court, until my youngest brother finally graduated college and we were able to close that estate. Margaret was always friendly, helpful, and put this young lad at ease. I will always be grateful to her, John and Curtis for their inestimable help during those years.

    I also well remember the adventure of that building being literally “rolled around the corner,” when John and Curtis saved it from demolition by buying it from Southern Bell and relocating it across the street, making way for the block-long federal building that now takes up the north side of that block. i spent my lunch break, every day for a week, watching the team moving it, and taking pictures with my little Kodak Instamatic camera. It was a slow process, literally inches at a time, as they were worried the mortar might not hold and that three-story building might collapse at any time. Thankfully, it held, and that office still stands, a testament to perseverance, dedication, and valuing Savannah’s history.

    i am glad that Margaret has been relieved of the physical ailments of her later years, and know she is now with family in heaven, I am glad I got to know her the little bit that I did.
