Margaret E. Yoder, 86, passed away Friday, May 4, 2019 at Hospice of Dayton with her Beloved husband Dick at her side.

Born in Piney Flatts, Tennessee in 1933, Margaret was the daughter of Fred and Iva (Agee) Hull and sister of Pat Springer. She married the love of her life, Dick Yoder in 1985 and began a 33 year journey of life together.

Margaret leaves her husband Dick, sister Pat (Lil), son Robert Clark, daughters Becky Munoz and Patty Rae, step daughters Vicki (Keith) Ferguson, Sue (David) Brink, Pat (Larry) Snyder, and Carla Harrison, 22 grandchildren and furry friend Barney.

She was predeceased by her parents, and furballs Mimi and Max.

Margaret had a quick wit and infectious humor. Her candor and sense of caring made her a friend to all who knew her. She was also creative and enjoyed knitting, crocheting, and cooking. She had a deep, abiding faith in God and loved reading her Bible daily.

Margaret was a strong, feisty, and independent woman She is deeply loved and will be missed by many. Although our hearts are heavy, we will celebrate her life and find comfort in the knowledge that she is in heaven watching over us.

Visitation will be from 4 to 7 p.m. at Baker Hazel and Snider Funeral Home, 5555 Philadelphia Dr., on Thursday, May 9. The service will be immediately following at 7 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family would prefer that contributions be made in memory of Margaret to The Hospice of Dayton, 324 Wilmington Ave., Dayton in honor of their compassionate, respectful, and loving care to Margaret and family members in her final hours.

Margaret recently spoke about her life:

“I have macular degeneration and glaucoma. God hit me with a double whammy. I can no longer see to write or drive or cook and can’t read my bible. If it weren’t for Dick I wouldn’t be able to survive. Dick was not my first husband, but he is my last. I still do have my sense of humor.

We have 7 kids between us, and 22 grandkids. We don’t know how many great, great grandkids we have and don’t want to know because it would make me feel older. My 3 kids are in Washington state and Dick has one in South Carolina, one in Tennessee and two in Ohio.

I worked in the graphic arts for 18 years and was in charge of the office and the daily routine for the salesmen. Then I went to work for the Glenn R. Smith Construction who rented apartments. I rented and collected the rent and also did all the accounting for both companies.

Something I kept hidden in high school was the fact my cousin was Secretary of State Cordell Hull, under Franklin D. Roosevelt. I could have mentioned the Livingstons but that would be too much bragging.”

And Dick’s memory: “When people ask how I met Margaret. I tell them that she had her corner and I saved her and made a good woman of her. I worked for RTA, the local bus company. I drove for a total of 12 years and she was my passenger. Hence her own corner was at 3rd & Main. I picked her up 5 days a week.”

I have always loved this Woman of Great Strength. She taught me many things. Some of which I may regret but she taught me to "Stick To Your Guns" way of life and attitude. I have respected her wishes through my life and do often wonder if she really knew what she said would be adhered to. My Aunt Margret held my hand and showed me great things in life which I am grateful for. I will never forget her unless a mind disease makes me. The story I will remember the most is the one where she lost half of her little finger. I still smile when I think how she treated a man at the restaurant because he kept staring at her. God Aunt Me I ache so much. Good Bye me friend and Hello Dick's Angel serve over him until he can be with you again.

I would like to offer my condolences to the family and friends of Ms. Margaret E. Yoder. John 5:28 "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." Lazarus' resurrection and that of others recorded in the Bible tells us what will take place on a global scale in the new world, a new earth.
