Margaret Joan Carroll

Margaret Joan Carroll has joined the angels in heaven on February 3, 2022

She leaves behind her two sons, Andrew, Roy, daughter in law Anita and so many more.

Margaret Joan Hannon was born on March 7, 1939 in Saint Mary’s Cray, England.

She raised two brilliant boys that she was so proud of. Andrew, at the age of 11, baked her a fresh home made loaf of bread for her birthday. It took her breath away. Roy, bragged to his buddies after Mum fixed his bike with a blow torch “I bet your Mum doesn’t know how to fix your bike!” (Sorry to all of Roy’s buddies Mums)

In 1984 she moved to America and has been here ever since.

Margaret was a generous person who loved to share with others. She was often surrounded by friends and animals that adored her. Margaret was loved deeply by her children, stepchildren, and grandchildren that knew her as “Nana”.

She enjoyed telling long stories and laughing about the memories she had from her adventurous, spontaneous life. Margaret believed in faith and serendipity, and she insisted there was a guardian angel watching over her. She fashioned her own luck and determined to stay positive and gracious, no matter what. Her love, laughter, and life advice will be missed by those near and far from her, but her special spirit will live on in the hearts that she held close.

She died peacefully and pain free with her son Roy by her side.
