Margaret

My Mom asked me to make this page about her sister Margaret.  Mom was the older sister to Charlotte "Margaret" Mullan born 2 years apart.  

"Margaret was before her time.  She was a tomboy.  She beat the boys at marbles and was the Champion of Hammond Street School in the 1930s."  Mom was a lady.  Grandma asked Margaret why she couldn't be more like June.

"Margaret could climb like a monkey.  When she was 8 or 9, she found a way to climb on the roof and would go from eave to eave then go into the bedroom window and circle back around.  She borrowed (her brother) John's horn and played taps."  Margaret loved to entertain family and friends with music.

Margaret was an artist and enjoye painting.  She would do carvings with Ivory soap.

"Life wouldn't have been as interesting without her.  Margaret helped me face challenges."
