Margaret A. Ferri, PLS
1928 – 2020
Our dear past member and friend, Margaret A. Ferri, slipped into eternal rest on June 29, 2020.
Margaret worked as a legal secretary for Justin D. Jirolanio, Esquire when she joined NALS in 1980 and received her PLS certification in 1985. She was an active member of the Lehigh/Northampton County Legal Secretaries Association and NALS of PA for many years and held various offices. She served as President, Treasurer, Governor and chaired many committees. During her membership, she attended all local meetings, state conferences and a few national conferences. After raising her children she continued her legal career as a secretary/paralegal for Sigmon & Sigmon, P.C. until she retired in 2007.
Margaret will be remembered by her bubbly personality, attention to detail, compassion for others and most importantly, her famous kiffles which she made on special occasions.
Marjorie Dominick, PLS, NALS of PA Patron’s Chair, said… “Margaret never liked to be idle so rest assured she will be keeping herself very, very busy in her new home. Look out Lord – here comes trouble!”
Peaceful rest until we meet again.
“Nothing Loved is Ever Lost”
Margaret will always remain in our hearts.
