Margaret Anne Link, 65 years old, passed away on April 4, 2013, after a battle with breast cancer. She is survived by a loving family including her mother, Sally Moore Barnes Link, her brother, Robert Barnes Link, his wife Charlotte Ward Link and her niece and nephew, Jessica and Benjamin Link. She is also survived by her loving first cousins Sallie Simpson of Winston Salem NC as well as Tucker Barnes, Julie Morrison, and Debbie Dijulio of Seattle WA. Margaret, a New Orleans native who was smart, spontaneous and eccentric, often reminisced about her "idyllic" childhood growing up in Gentilly. Her father, the late Rev Albert B Link, passed away in 1986 but remained, along with her mother, a special and enduring inspiration throughout her life. Shortly after receiving a B.A. in psychology from the University of New Orleans, Margaret worked teaching piano in a special education environment. She moved from that position to offering private piano lessons for many years, developing close and long lasting relationships with her students and their families. In difficult times, Margaret's mother was supportive above and beyond the call of duty, and when her mother became ill with Alzheimer's, Margaret loved and cared for her daily and with unlimited devotion. She continued to make friends wherever she went - at the bookstore where she read aloud to her mother or at the nursing home where she would always say a kind word or hold the hand of other residents who appeared lonely or forgotten. Margaret was dearly loved and her passing has left an empty place in our hearts that cannot be filled.
A Graveside Service will be held at Garden of Memories Cemetery, 4900 Airline Drive in Metairie on Saturday, April 13, 2013 at 2 pm for family and friends.
