Margaret was a lady of unique poise, eloquence, and grace who strove to make the community and Wisconsin a better place. My deepest sympathies and prayers to John and her entire family. It was an honor to have served on the Elm Grove Village Board when she was President and I will be forever grateful for her mentoring that is guiding me as a town supervisor.

To the Farrow Family, Please accept our heartfelt condolence for your loss, our thoughts and prayers are with you. We have many fond memories of Margaret, from dinner at our house and giving my son a book on Wisconsin which he cherished and ready many times over to playing volleyball at a picnic, and many more in between.

Hephzibah and Subha Kumpaty left a message on March 16, 2022:
Dear Professor Farrow was the ME department chair when Subha was hired. We got to know the wonderful couple who always had a word to excite you and affirm you. And as UW Whitewater professor Hepsi got to work with Mrs. Margaret Farrow on many occasions including Chancellor search. We always admired her poise and concern for others. We can only thank God that our paths crossed and Farrows are indeed a blessing not just to us and many who crossed their paths. What a lady who exemplified the importance of faith, family and community every step of the way! Our prayers are with you in your bereavement. May the Farrow household find strength in sweet memories of her.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

The Lt. Gov. gave me a warm reception and a personal tour of the Capitol when I was first elected to the Assembly in 2002. She was gracious, humble and encouraging. A great role model in life as well as politics. My condolences to the family.

I was blessed to take "Peg" out muskie fishing on Pewaukee Lake many times. She knew what she was doing and we had an incredible conversations and laughs together.She was a great lady with enough common sense that she could have given every other politician in the state a transfusion and still have plenty left over.....a rarity especially nowadays! We all will miss her! God Bless!

Paul as I mentioned at the district caucus to you, our Mothers give us the best of us and the lesser things are our own lower qualities. She was a trailblazer but most important a wife, mother and grandmother. RIP

Margaret and I were “road warriors” traveling all across Wisconsin raising funds for WisconsinEye Public Affairs Network. She always made such a positive and passionate presentation to all she met. But it was along those lonely stretches of highway that she shined the brightest as she joyfully shared the accomplishments of her children and grandchildren; stories of courage, faith, accomplishment, determination, service, and success. She could have been talking of herself as these are the very same qualities that shaped such a wonderful legacy of a life well-lived. I miss you already, dear friend.

I had the honor of working with Margaret when she was Elm Grove Village President. She always put public concerns first. She also inspired my daughter to consider public service. Our prayers are with the entire family during this difficult time

While I knew Margaret Farrow like many did, as the consummate public servant and force, it was in the unexpected moments of seeing her amidst her family that her grace and humanity shone. My thoughts are with all of you as you celebrate her life and the gifts she shared with the world. Warm Regards, Melanie Schmidt
Matthew Williams and family left a message on March 10, 2022:
