Tribute to Margaret Kenney

Since St. Margaret's House opened 32 years ago, Margaret Kenney has been an integral and invaluable part of our work. She was one of our original founders, worked as a cook, served as our Board Treasurer, coordinated records for our volunteers, and guided us as an advisor and wisdom figure throughout all of this time. This video was created in honor of her being named Volunteer of the Year in 2017. It is a wonderful interview that showcases her indomitable spirit and dedicated belief in this work.

Sadly, Margaret died on Sunday, June 26. This beautiful obituary has details about the arrangements.
