Margaret attended Dunbar High School and graduated on May 17, 1964, with honors. At a young age, she realized her passion to serve and care for others.

Margaret accepted Christ at an early age. She was a devoted member of New Light Baptist Church and later joined Damascus Missionary Baptist Church where she served faithfully as the youth leader. She later moved her membership to New Dimensions Ministries where she also served faithfully until her health started to decline. She loved spending time with family and friends (especially her grandkids), watching movies (scary movies were her favorite), reading (Stephen King books), playing cards (especially Spades), playing dominos, and completing crossword puzzles.

Margaret met and married the love of her life, Godfrey J. Briller, Jr. (preceded in death) on March 3, 1967, and with him she had four children. She is survived by her five children: Cynthia B. Roberts (Manuel), Godfrey J. Briller, III (Brandi), William C. Briller (Cathy), Dr. Enitra D. Briller, and Darren D. Briller (Veronica).

  6. To the Family, Margaret Ann was the most interesting person to be around. As children, and knowing any better we obeyed everything she told us to do. I’ll always remember the day she pierced all the girls ears. We told her it hurt and her response to us was “girls have to suffer to look cute”. Her favorite passtime was telling ghost stories. To this day, I enjoy telling ghost stories. She was the best Aunt because she was like a big sister and best friend. Those days at the home of William Price was Terrific.

  7. I remember when we went to Enitra’s house and loved meeting you. You were such a beautiful person and I’m so glad I had the pleasure of meeting you. Rest in peace with our almighty lord.

I really have love for you and I will always remember you for being my sister with giving wise counsel, with God focused.
