Dear family of Miss Margaret. I cannot begin to tell you the impact she made in my life. She was always telling me how beautiful I was and we would always hug and say I love you to each other. I remember going to the old library store across from the school. She loved books and always wanted us to read. She was a special sweet lady and I will miss her but I will always remember her sweet sweet soul. I am very sorry for your loss. You had a very sweet mother, grand ma and mother in law. Much love, Tammy Hicks O’Briant

Condolence from Susan Oakley Fisher on July 18th, 2016 11:52 pm

Some of my fondest memories as a little girl at Berea Elementary was listening to Mrs. Adcock read a story. She had a gift for blanketing a room of children with warmth, love and understanding. She was infinitely kind whose sweet smile was a beacon of light to so many, including me. Please accept my deepest sympathies and gratitude for a life so beautiful and full of grace.
