Margaret M. Jung, 42
July 1, 1973 — April 7, 2016
Margaret “Margo” M. Jung (nee Gleason) entered Heaven’s gates April 7, 2016. She was born to the late James Gleason and Dyanne (nee Held) Leinen on July 1, 1973.
Margo is the proud mother of Dianna “Paige” Lightner.
She will be deeply missed by her sisters, Wyndy (Don) O’Handley, Deanne (Bruce) Reige and Dyla (Nathan) Heimerl; her brother, Jim (Connie) Gleason; her fiancée Joseph C. Horvath; her stepfather, Ronald Leinen; and her fur babies, Joseph Tucker and Kinzley.
She will be further missed by her stepbrothers, Glenn Leinen (Melanie) and Ron Leinen: stepsister, Lana Vercautern (Scott); and many nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles.
Margo found joy in spending time doing anything with her family — sitting out on the patio on a sunny day, sitting around a campfire, making jokes, playing games and cards. Margo adored children just as much as they adored her. Her heart was so big, if she could adopt a child, she would. Margo will be utterly and deeply missed by her loved ones.
Margo was a person that would make anyone feel loved just by her kind, gentle smile. Her eyes were as beautiful as the sky, bright blue, so warm. She had a gift for comforting; if someone needed to talk, Margo would be there for a shoulder to weep on. Her heart was filled with love for family, friends and her two dogs. Her devotion to her dogs was unsurpassed. She would have had one of each breed if allowed. Her life was always filled with music, a helping hand and open ear to anyone who needed it. Margo had dreams of being the best woman she could be — she didn’t fail. Margo has touched many, many hearts; now her memories will be forever remembered. Margaret Mary Gleason ... she loved to be loved. Fly high!
“There needs to be a lot more emphasis on what a child can do, instead of what he cannot do.” — Dr. Temple Grandin
