Sounds like a wonderful woman indeed and it definitely doesn't hurt that she has the same first name as my dearly beloved Grandmother.

I attended 14 years of Catholic education - 4 years of all-girl's Academy...When I read Margaret's story, I could picture the excellent training and service to others - duty, responsibility, integrity, character, honesty, spirituality, purpose and soul which her parochial education offered her.  Brigadier General, WOW!!!  Sad to hear of her disease...
