Obituary for Margaret Waltz

Margaret Waltz passed away May 19th in McMinnville. The youngest child of Kathryn and Henry Wickman, Margaret was born January 17, 1915 in Sedgwick, Colorado. She grew up and spent most of her life on the plains of Colorado, attending and graduating from High School in Crook, Colorado.
She married J. George Waltz in 1939. During WWII, while George served with the US Army in Germany, and later when he battled ill health, Margaret operated their Mobil Oil service station and bulk plant in Crook. The couple also raised two daughters, Peggy and Connie. After retiring from the service station in 1976, George and Margaret moved to Sterling, Colorado where they lived until George’s death in 1990.
Since both daughters were then in Oregon, Margaret moved to McMinnville in 1991 to be near them. One of her passions was gardening, and she greatly enjoyed the ease with which she could raise beautiful flowers in Oregon’s climate after having to struggle to do so in Colorado’s arid plains. She had many years of enjoyment creating gardens bursting with blooms. She loved animals and birds and always had a few jays who had managed to train her when and how they liked to be fed.
Margaret was preceded in death by her husband George, her daughter Connie, and her five siblings. She is survived by her daughter Peggy, of McMinnville. At her request, no service will be held, but she will be interred in the family plot in Sterling, Colorado.
