    Margaret Weissbluth, the last time I saw Margaret was March 18. I know that because March 18 is a Wednesday and that was our day. We did not go to the faculty club that morning which was our usual routine because of the shelter in place order. We sat in...  more

    Where do I begin? Margaret has been a huge part of my life over the last many years. As with Cassa we had breakfast almost every week. There are very few people in my life that do not know of Margaret and her history. Margaret was as much apart of my...  more

    Margaret lived a long, healthy, and fulfilling life that is the desire of all of us, yet I am very sad and heartbroken that I won't get to see her again. I was really looking forward to seeing her more regularly now that I am moving back to the bay area....  more

    Margaret is my great aunt and I first remember meeting her almost 30 years ago when she flew all the way to New York from California for my Bar Mitzvah where she lit one of the candles. It was a happy time but also a sad time as her brother and my...  more

    I am sad to hear of Margaret’s death. She was a good friend- always chatted about whatever when we met at SCRA. My fond memories of her go way back to meeting her at SCRA and just visiting about whatever was then going on--a very friendly soul- to...  more

    Margaret shared:
    a rainbow of friends, a trail of stories, a wicker basket of Wisdom, a vase
    brimming with curiosity, a remarkable zest for Life, and a heart spilling over with kindness.
    Was I ever lucky to spend as much time as I did with her!

    Margaret and I were neighbors and friends for many years. She was always such a joy to be around and an amazing inspiration. I feel fortunate to have known her and been friends with her. She will be deeply missed.

    Our fondest memories of Margaret go back to the late 90’s when our son, David, attended Stanford. All of our visits to see him included time with Margaret, usually involving a walk to the Dish and dinner with some of David’s friends and Margaret. ...  more

    It was a privilege to have Margaret as a friend. Whip smart, warm and generous - she was always quick with a kind word and gentle smile. I so enjoyed playing Scrabble with her, even though she beat me consistently! Margaret is an inspiration to live a...  more

    Margaret was a hoot! I only knew her through the SUWC. We should all be so lucky to live a full cognitive life as she did. I admired her positive attitude. She will always be remembered. May her memory be eternal!

    Margaret was one of the great joys of our Stanford neighborhood. Ever wise, all-knowing, forever young, Margaret was a friend and a kind adult for each of our daughters, and our son-in-law. Margaret was a presence in our family life, joining us for many...  more

    Dear Christina, Steve and Claire,

    So the clock finally ran out on Margaret. What an innings she had. And what an impressive way to lead one's life. Her death really marks the end of an era for so many of us---no more Margaret! I can't imagine anyone...  more
