Death: Margarett McGarry

Margarett Alma Thatcher Bramwell McGarry, 82, died at home on February 6, 1998.

Margarett was born on September 13, 1915, in College Ward, Cache County, Utah, the daughter of Orson Pratt Thatcher and Nettie Reeder Thatcher. In January 1937, she married Ralph Holman Bramwell. They settled in Spanish Fork, Utah, and had four children. Later divorced, Margarett relocated to Provo, Utah. In August 1983, she marriedBernard D. McGarry, her loving companion for the remainder of her life.

Margarett was an adventurer. As a child she enjoyed riding horses on the family farm, preferring outdoors to indoors any day. As a young mother she packed gear and her children off to mountains and lakes for camping trips. Later, she traveled to any part of the world opportunity allowed, and adored every place and people she visited.

Margarett was a devout member of the LDS faith, where she served in numerous capacities large and small through her life. Together with Barney, she filled a mission to Chinle, Arizona.

For her family and friends, Margarett was a model of courage, thrift, patience, and enduring joy and love. She was unselfish in every

respect, and grateful for each of life's gifts.

She is survived by her husband, Barney; twin sister, Josephine Archibald; sons and daughters, Ann, Dixie, Dale, Ernest and his wife, Eunice; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, all of whom will miss Margarett always.

Heber City Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, those wishing to do so are invited to make a contribution to a favorite

charity in her memory.
