Condolences for Margaret Mitchell Boylston

I realized that I had not heard from Margaret at Christmas and decided to look her up on Facebook. There I found that she had died the day after her birthday. She I were childhood friends--lived across the street from each other. I reconnected with her years later through Bill. Then she and David and my husband and I had lunch together a few years ago when they came to Durham for David's treatment. That was a joy. May God bless the family in your time of grief.

David, Johnny and Ginny Your mom your mom and I were very close during our young adult and though we did not see one another often after her move to Willmington We were always apart of one another lives thru our times as nursing students. I was honored to wear her wedding dress for my wedding to Carl in 1964 as she had married shortly before and offered it so generously, I will never forget her smiling face and bubbly laugh. God be you all.

I worked with Margaret “Meg” for 28+ years. She was such a sweet lady and friend. She was a Christian and it showed in the many things that she did for me and my family and others. I know this loving spirit will live on in many lives for many years to come. Please know that I am praying for you, David, Ginny and Johnny that the Lird will continue to be with you during this time. In Jesus’ Love,

Dear Mr. David, Johnny and Ginny: Mrs. Meg has always been such a dear friend to Momma and so good to our entire family. I can remember it like it was yesterday when she gave me my bridal shower (and I have been married 33 years!) She was so kind and generous in all that she did. May you know how much she is thought of by all who knew her! With continued love and prayers for you all, Wendy (West) Arthur and Family

Aunt Margaret had a gift for making everyone feel loved at all times.

David i am saddened by your loss and want to express my sincere condolences. Those of us in the Tuesday morning prayer group have been following Margaret's battle with cancer for several years together with the daily care you have been giving her through this fight. I will keep you in my prayers.

Dear Mr Boylston, Johnny & Ginny, As you know, your family was a loving bedrock for me during my adolescence and young adulthood. Your open door and comfort made all the difference. As an adult, it has been hard to live at a distance. But being afar has never meant that I haven’t cherished all the love and joy your family shared with me. Your family values have continued to guide me into adulthood. I love you. Suzanne

I met Meg when I worked at Diamond Shamrock in the 1970s. She had the kindest personality. My condolences to the family on your loss.

I was so fortunate to have Margaret as my neighbor, dear friend, and inspiration from the time I moved to her street in 2013. Glenn and I send our deepest condolences to Dave and her family. I am bereft at this loss here on earth... all those in heaven are blessed to have her there now. I thank her and Dave for so much, not least of which being her love of bluebirds and new bluebird families...and how she shared that experience with us this past spring. She brought so much joy and kindness to every day. We love you very much Margaret.

Margaret was a wonderful friend for fifty five years . She and my wife both suffered from ovarian cancer and gave each other great support and are now both with Jesus. She was a very special person who will never be forgotten .
