I am a parishioner at SJ Neumann and take communion to many Catholics at Brethren Village.  Margaret was such a sweet woman.  I have been taking her communion and she was always so appreciative.  After Communion we would both offer prayers and say the Our Father together.  I loved my visits with her and she was always in my prayers. My name is Meg Connors real name Margaret…..she liked that!!

Margaret was my Godmother as well as a beloved extended member of the family. She was such a sweet woman who enjoyed visiting with our family and sharing special moments such as Birthdays, Communions and other special occasions. She shared her knowledge of the family history and would show me photos and tell me stories. She even offered to teach me Slovak. I know she is at peace because she was a kind and devout woman.
