is honored with a Brick from Linda Bulter and Paulette Melson.
Our mother Margaret McKee has a very special quality; the ability to bite her tongue when she doesn't agree with the choices her daughters make. We value her opinion and many times we ask for it. At these times she tells us what she thinks, but she's a wise woman who knows that support and encouragement nourish her relationships with everyone in the family.
She was born in Evansville, Indiana, in 1926. She was the fifth of seven children in a very close knit family. Of her siblings, nieces, nephews, and grandchildren, she's the cherished favorite and as her daughters, we understand why. Our mom had a gentle, yet unwavering, way of teaching us values that we have come to embrace as our own. We feel blessed and very grateful for our mom. To us, no one belongs in the Plaza of Heroines more than our mom. We love you.
