Margaret Fitzgerald

Margaret Fitzgerald was my YWA leader at First Baptist Church, Palestine, Texas. Out of all the people in my life, she probably influenced me more than anyone.

She invested a lot of time in me and the other girls.

I kept in touch with her over the years and she was thrilled to know I worked for national WMU. I wrote her often and she followed my travels with interest and prayers.

When I was asked to write a "gift of missions" article for Missions Mosaic in August 2017, I wrote about Margaret and the influence she had on my life.

Now almost 100, Margaret was thrilled to receive her own copy of Missions Mosaic and to know her influence on my life has been shared around the WMU world.

I treasure the photograph of my giving her the copy of Missions Mosaic when I visited her in Palestine recently.

Sylvia DeLoach, in honor of her missions inspiration, Margaret Fitzgerald
