Margaret moved to Florida with her late husband, Jason Boeger, in 1978 to retire. it was then that they fulfilled their dream of building a house on land that they owned in Sarasota.

A celebration of life ceremony is to be held by the surviving family this June in Baltimore, Maryland at her original family home. invitations with more details will be sent shortly.
a church service in her name has been dedicated by St Martha’s Catholic Church in Sarasota as well as Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church in Land O Lakes FL. on the date of Sunday, March 25th, 2018.
Margaret was a devoted Catholic who always taught the importance of faith to her children, the following is a prayer from them to her.
“God of our ancestors in faith, by the covenant made on Mount Sinai You taught Your people to strengthen the bonds of family through faith, honor, and love. Look kindly upon Margaret, a mother who sought to bind her children to You. Bring her to Your heavenly home where the saints dwell in blessedness and peace. Amen.”
In lieu of flowers or gifts, the family has asked that you graciously donate canned food or other goods to your local chapter of the St Vincent DePaul Society at http://www.svdpusa.org/. This charity focuses on feeding the needy through the kindness of its partnered Catholic diocese.
