I did not personally know Margaret but after being involved with the breed for ten years, I do know how much she did for the Swissy community. She was amazing and her work in founding the club and keeping its history is very much appreciated and will never be forgotten. I wish her peace and know that she will meet all the beloved Swissys that have crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

To a great Friend of the Swissies. You are missed, but I'll bet there were many wagging tails at the rainbow bridge. I'm glad I spoke to you Sunday noon, and I plan to be at Eglington, to say my final farewell. Thanks for your friendship. Peace be with you.

I have known Margaret since I got into Swissys in 1988. I had a rescue girl named Pepsi and Margaret helpe me find who we thought Pepsi was. Back in those days there were so few Swissys in the US. Margaret and I developed an online friendship, I met her a couple of times at the Cotton Classic shows in Perry GA. I am so grateful for her work bringing the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog to this country. Please let me know who is taking Willi. I am sending a donation to Rescue Foundation of the GSMD Club of America. Every Swissy is saddened by Margaret's passing. Margaret, when you get to heaven, please tell Pepsi I miss her so much. And hug her tight for me. And I am sure Bonnie Doon will find you as well. She will be the one in charge. my love. glenda parks and Dutch. Baton ROuge, LA

Back in the late seventies, Margaret arranged for Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs to be shown in Rare-Breed events. This was long before our breed was recognized by the AKC. She later became Show Chairperson for our fledgling club. Then, in 1992 (after serving as Registrar for our club for seven years) I turned the Official Registry over to Margaret. About a year or so later, we started negotiating with AKC for full recognition of our breed. I remember attending meetings at her home in New Jersey with representatives from the American Kennel Club. Then, in 1995 Swissies became officially recognized. Margaret continued as Registrar up to the time of her death last weekend. This wonderful woman needs to be memorialized by the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog Club of America for her selfless service over the last 30 years or more. God Bless you Margaret. It has been a true honor to have been among those you called 'friend'.
