In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her brothers Harry, Troy, Holland, Billy, and Dan. Margaret was a loving and devoted wife, sister, aunt, and friend to all. She loved her family and expressed that love in many ways. She was strong, independent, kind and generous. In high school she was a star player in basketball and helped lead her team to State playoffs twice.

Margaret worked hard all her life, including 49 years at Brand Electric Company where she became co-owner, a position she served well until she became incapacitated.

In her early years of marriage she enjoyed traveling to the mountains and beaches. In the later years she was content to enjoy life at home and in the surrounding landscape, abundant with wildlife.

During the years of travel, she and her husband accumulated a large collection of arts and crafts, which she cherished dearly. She enjoyed cooking in her spacious kitchen and loved sharing her favorite recipes with family and friends.

Margaret is survived by her husband Gene of 55 years; sisters Doris Jones and Anne Adams; a brother-in-law and his wife Roger and Kathryn Wallace; and many nieces and nephews. Special thanks are in order for niece Melissa J. Patterson who was constantly by Margaret’s side during the traumatic times leading up to her death. She affectionately referred to Margaret as her “Bonus Mom”.

Wade Jr. officiating, reception to follow in the Fellowship Hall.   In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to “THE GARDEN” at First Presbyterian Church of Covington, 1169 Clark Street, Covington, GA. 30014.
