Loutzenhiser-Jordan Online Guestbook for Margaret H. Young
My thoughts go out to you all. I have written to Margaret for 60 years and shared with her both our families' joys and challenges over the years. We spoke each Christmas and birthday and I have such fond memories of us seeing each other, here in the UK and in Pennsylvania, USA. My prayers are with you all at this very sad time. I will miss her.
Our thoughts and prayers to the family.
The family of Mary (Young) Walsh
I am so very, very sorry. Mrs. Young was one of the most wonderful people I have ever known. When my mom passed away, she was always there for me. I loved her like my own family and I will miss her.
Dear Family, it is so sad to write to you at the loss of Margaret, especially as I have never met nor known any of my American family. None the less, I still feel your sadness and the loss, and wish that I had known Aunt Margaret. Ellis, my father used to tell stories of their childhood, and the responsibility she had as the decision maker and eldest child in war-torn England. I am sure her brothers challenged her with their naughtiness and pranks. I have also heard stories about the new English war bride who encountered a embraced a new family and way of life after moving to the US with her GI husband. Now, in this day and age of internet, movies and global information, that might not seem so challenging, but in post war years, we can only imagine what an adventurer Margaret was to adventure half a globe away to join a new family, in a very different landscape.
She was a pioneer!
Please stay in touch with me, and I hope that we can beat the tyranny of distance and meet some day.
My condolences and heart-felt sorrow for your loss, your cousin in Sydney Australia, Katrina Hill
