Dec. 1923 ~ Dec. 2013
Marguerite moved to California in 1947 and earned her AA degree at Modesto Junior College in 1952 and her Bachelor of Arts Degree from San Jose State College in 1954. She taught primary grades overseas in Okinawa and locally in the 60’s and 70’s.
Marguerite loved to read her Bible, prayed endlessly for her family, baked German stollen at Christmas time, always remembered everyone on their birthday, and loved to play Scrabble (She was good at it!).
She attended Calvary Temple in Modesto and more recently Monte Vista Chapel in Turlock. She was number 5 in a family of 10 siblings. She moved to St. Thomas Retirement Center from Modesto the summer of 2007.
Marguerite is survived by three sisters Lenore Wilson of Laguna Hills, CA, Lil Gary of Ceres and Betty Brenda of Turlock and many nieces and nephews.
Viewing will be at Allen Mortuary on Saturday, December 28, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. with funeral to follow at 11:00a.m. also at Allen Mortuary.
