Margo was a resident of Lodi from the age of 18 and worked as a bookkeeper, for Paul Gomez. She was also a manager, for Cocina Cuevas, the chef, for Pancho Villas, and a homemaker.
Margo had a fun-loving spirit and was always happy. She was glamorous and couldn’t leave the house without her hair and makeup done to perfection. She loved being in the kitchen and spending time with family. She enjoyed listening to rock music, crafting, gardening, reading, crossword puzzles, dancing, and going to the movies for Lodi’s best popcorn. Her smile was contagious, her laugh was heartwarming, and her presence was cherished by all. Margo was extremely grateful and appreciated every person and moment. She never took anything for granted and her kindness was beyond measure. Her life was a blessing and her memory will be treasured forever.
