She was a sweet lady who always exemplified Christ love.
Cheryl, I’m so sorry to her of your Moms passing. You and your family will be in my prayers. God bless.
Marguerite was a great lady, so kind, and full of grace and love for others. She was so gracious to have me in her home when I would go to visit Cheryl. One of my fondest memories of Marguerite was when she called and asked if she could come by to get a recipe of mine. She was so sweet and we had the best time visiting. I loved her so much. It was such a blessing to see Marguerite whenever I would get back to Hereford. My love and prayers go out to you, Cheryl, Jana, Beverly and Bill and your families. God bless you all.
Marguerite exemplified the ultimate Christ like life. My memory is flooded with the examples of her love and kindness for everyone she knew. What a blessing to have experienced the friendship of she and Floyd. My most sincere condolences to Bill and the entire Cole family.

Our thoughts and prayers to her family . Marguerite was the sweetest kindest lady .May she Rest In Peace and Gid comfort her family
A beautiful lady who brought Granny Cole and Jana to our wedding 61 1/2 years ago furthering our connection to our Cole family. We cherish our visits as she was always so welcoming and warm. Truly a Proverbs 31 woman and I am blessed knowing her! May peace from Jesus hold you.
Marguerite was a very sweet, kind, dear lady and a joy to know. My love, thoughts and prayers go out to Jana and the entire family during this sad time.
Oh so sorry to hear this. Quite a special woman that always amazed me. I loved her so much. Thinking of you all at this time.
I always recall Marguerite’s hospitality from our first meeting, in 1957. Not entirely in jest I can state that she substantially improved the overall quality of the Cole family when she married Floyd.
thoughts and prayers are with you that, our God and Marguerite’s God, whom she loved so much gives you peace and comfort.
Bill sorry for your family’s loss we will be praying for y’all.
I will always cherish the time I got to spend with her. She always made me feel welcome and part of the Cole family. She was the glue that held everyone together.
I will surely miss her as I know everyone that knew her will also.
Such a sweet and beautiful lady inside and out!! So very sorry for your loss and praying for all the family.

What a remarkable woman Aunt Marguerite was. She was such an inspiration and never failed to send the most thoughtful hand written Christmas cards every year and remembered so many details about my family! Sending the deepest sympathy and love to all of you. She will be sorely missed.
I couldn’t have said it better
Jana and family, I am so sorry to hear about Mrs. Cole. You are all in my prayers.
