We are sorry to inform you that Margaret Kirkpatrick, Tax Collector, Passed Away December 31, 2020

Click here for Margaret's Obituary

It was with great sadness that I learned of Marge’s death.  Marge was a valuable member of our town team and most importantly a good friend.  She was a hard worker, was very generous, and extremely conscious always seeing to it that her work was done on time and with 100% accuracy.  She worked well beyond the requirements of the job and always staying current on new changes.  Her love for her family was always shared with us and she kept us up to date on what exciting things were going on in their lives.  It will be difficult for us to move forward, but knowing that is what Marge would want we will always be thinking of her and what she would do.  I am so sorry for Marge’s children and grandchildren knowing what a void this leaves in their lives.  Marge was awarded the NYS Senate Women of Distinction Award for her long and dedicated service to the Quaker Springs Fire Dept.  Rest In Peace Marge.  You left us way to soon!
