Margaret had a light-hearted, happy personality. She loved gardening, fresh air, horses, and country life. Margaret was never more content and peaceful than when she was living on a farm. She loved country music and could identify any song and it’s singer within a few bars of the melody. She was a ‘make-it from-scratch’ cook, never using box mixes. Her love and devotion to her family was unsurpassed. She had a fun, quick-witted sense of humor that always surprised you. She will be missed and loved forever.
A memorial service for Margaret will be at the American Legion Post 123, 14111 Ball Creek Rd, Kent City, MI 49330 on Saturday, November 6, 2021 at 4:00pm. In lieu of flowers her children request donations to the Heartland Hospice, Portage, Michigan in the name of Margaret Ketterman.
