    I’m so sorry to hear of “Miss Hannifin’s” passing. That is how I first knew her many years ago. She taught us to use good language and to appreciate the Oak Ridge Boys. Her smile and laugh were contagious. All the little girls loved her long beautiful hair. I saw her a couple years ago and introduced her to my kids. Her smile and shining eyes and kindness were exactly the same. She made this world a better place.

    Margaret, May you take your positive attitude and your love for learning and teaching to heaven and make it a better place like you made life here on earth a better place.

  3. Sonya Coombs

    I can only imagine the devastation your family must be experiencing. Margaret will be missed but not forgotten. God’s written word assures us that “there is going to be a resurrection” (Acts 24:15). This means that Margaret will be given a fresh new start with the prospect of living forever. May the hope of being reunited with your wife and mom help your spirits stay strong. Please accept my deepest sympathy and a warm invitation for you to find more comfort at

    Sorry for your loss, she was a great lady.

  7. Mrs. Allinson was my 3rd grade teacher, and even though it’s been years and years, I still think of her as one of my all-time favorites. I’m so grateful for the way that she loved us students and loved teaching us. I’m so sorry for your loss.

  8. Corey Allinson

    Aunt Margaret was always so genuine and kind. She loved to tease us as kids. Out at the cabin with family, I believe it was Margaret who started the tradition of calling each kid “Chief Dirty Neck of the Never-Wash tribe”. My Uncle Randy and Aunt Margaret were an amazing team and together they raised three strong, successful, good natured kids.

    To Uncle Randy, Autumn, Jake, & Logan: I’m sure the pain in my heart does not hold a candle in comparison to yours. But I would like to share my pain with you all the same. I won’t forget the memories, I won’t forget her smile, I won’t forget her special laugh, I won’t forget how she called me “Cor”, & I won’t forget how she made me feel good about myself. I wont forget her. I love you Aunt Margaret

    Hi Randy and Family. I am saddened to here of this news. There is never a time when these moments do not sting. My mother passed away this spring and a quote from Sir Terry Pratchett gave me a bit of solace as I thought upon it. He says, “No one is actually gone until the ripples they caused in the world die away”. From what I have read your wife (and mother) created many ripples, in many people, over many years, and although this time is hard, rest assured she lives on through all those she touched. May God grace you each with comfort and the promise of everlasting life. Kevin Arthur
