In Memory of Margaret Emerson

Margaret Emerson, a founding member of the BWAGS (Bozeman Women’s Activity Group) and a long-time friend and supporter of GVLT, passed away last month after a short illness. A devoted hiker, skier and outdoors woman, Margaret blazed trails for generations of women to follow.

We will remember her for her sunny disposition and warm laugh. Margaret was a frequent visitor to the GVLT offices and always brightened the day of everyone she met. Penelope, Executive Director, remembers Margaret fondly, “I will always treasure my friendship with Margaret. She was as bright and colorful as  her amazing flower garden and  beautiful collages, and she inspired me with the way she embraced and celebrated  life.”

In her obituary, her family wrote, “She would wish that you find a beautiful spot in nature and enjoy it while holding your memories of her.”  We can think of no better way to honor the memory of this truly wonderful woman.  She will be deeply missed.
