     Margaret Lucille (Ripley) Napier, 87, of Scottsville, passed away on Sunday evening, September 8, 2019 at Martha Jefferson Hospital in Charlottesville surrounded by her family.

James and Lisa, we are so sorry to hear about Margaret. She was such a sweet lady and she was a great cook and if you ever left hungry it was your own fault. She will be deeply missed by everyone. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family at this time.

James and Lisa
I was so sorry to hear of Margaret's death. I really enjoyed meeting her and getting to know her from the Antique Store. I felt special when I would see her outside of the store and she would hug me and ask about my son. I always loved talking to her and see her humor come out when she talked about her family. I know you will miss her.
