Dear Linda, Gretchen, Eric, Heidi, Jess, Erika and all of family,

Please accept my deepest condolences.

She was the quintessential example of a great wife/Mother/grandmother. What an amazing life she had.

As sad as it is that she has passed, I hope you find it comforting that she’s finally reunited with your Dad/Grandpa and sister/Aunt. You all have a new beautiful angel to watch over you,

To the family of Margaret Gang,

Margaret was the finest example of friendship, loyalty, beauty and grace. I served as President and sang with her for many years in the Syracuse Liederverein and she always was supportive of preserving the German culture and singing. Personally I have never met anyone who more of a LADY than Margaret. She will always be remembered for her hospitality and welcoming smile. My heart is deeply saddened and I offer my sincerest condolences.
