to the drapikowski and boniewicz family my heartfelt condolences. I grew up with Margaret in our old neighborhood.As children I never had a closer friend . Margaret lit up all my early Heman Street school photos. Her smile was like no other child in the photo,your eyes immediately went to her. Margaret was a very lovely tomboy who could mix it up with any boy on the street. AS we got older we enjoyed walking up to the newly built Fremont Bakery for doughnuts before school. Margaret grew into beautiful woman and married one of our classmates Bob. After school I didnt see Margaret much,but my mom and her kept in touch at Price Chopper. To Bucky,Peanuts ,and Deb along with all your children, I want you to know how much your sister meant to me. I will think of her and the memories we shared forever. God Bless you Margaret and hope you rest peacefully.Thank You for being in my life.

Over fifty years of memories. It’s hard to know where to start. I will cherish the sleepovers and how your cat always bit at our toes while we slept. The fun in your pool and the hundreds and hundreds of games of kickball on the side street. And all the babysitting of the nieces and nephews. You were right there when Frankie died. All the cooking you did. I could go on and on. You are free of pain now. Rest In Peace my friend. Janice (Anastas) Kane

My deepest condolences to Maggie’s boys, Brian, Adam, and Mike. Whenever we got together, she spoke of each of you with such pride. (Rightfully So).
We had so much fun back in the early days of our Price Chopper careers. Maggie was always the life of the party.
I remember when I turned 30 ( 31 years ago) she posted signs all the way down the road that I lived on. She was also involved with the hiring of a singing telegram guy that mortified me at the store. I could tell stories forever but won’t! What happened at the Chopper stays at the Chopper.
What stands out most in my mind was her fierce loyalty as a friend. She literally would give the shirt off her back for any one of us, even in times where she had little for herself. The more we refused, the harder she pushed.
As you know she was a fantastic cook and loved to share. her masterpieces. I can also think of a few times that I opened my mailbox to find either a card or a craft she had made me. Endearing to know that she was thinking of me. But disturbing to wonder how she was able to get to the post office and why she would spend what little she had on postage. Your Mom was generous to a fault but always had the best of intentions.
Obviously when someone passes you have regrets... I could have done more, I should have picked up the phone more than I did, did she know I considered her one of my dearest friends? I pray that she did...
We went to lunch after church a number of times and would talk for hours. When I would drop her off at her apartment... she would kiss me on the cheek and say, I love you Gilk! Many times I would cry as I waved goodbye. Wondering how life can turn on a dime...
I wish times were different and that I could have paid my respects properly. Please know that your Mom has been in my thoughts and prayers, as well as each of you.
Godspeed Maggie, I love you❤️
