Margaret was born September 1, 1969 in El Paso, Texas and moved with her parents to
Farmington when she was three, She attended Sacred Heart and Farmington High. Margaret
met Brett at church and they were married on June 25, 2017 and baptized together that
October. Even though their time together was short they grew as a couple and in their faith in
the Lord. Family, friends and her dogs were very important to Margaret . She was always willing
to help out. It wasn’t unusual for her to make a midnight Walmart run for a sick nephew or take
her father for a ride around town, or pick up a friend who needed a ride to the grocery store or
bible study. She would gladly drop whatever she was doing to support those who needed her.
Margaret had a wicked sense of humor. She was a firecracker and could lighten any bad mood
with her funny stories and laughter. Margaret loved her family, especially her nephews, and
nothing made her happier than a big noisy get together. Margaret will be missed as a wife,
daughter, sister, aunt and friend.
A celebration of Margaret’s life will be held on Sunday, October 27 at 11:00 a.m. at the
Pinon Hills Seventh-day Adventist Church at 5001 Foothills Drive, Farmington, NM. A reception
will follow. Memorial donations may be made to the Farmington Animal Shelter.
