Margaret was born on June 20, 1940, in Shreveport, Louisiana.  She died on Monday, November 20, 2023, after a brief illness.  She was preceded in death by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. C.G.

Margaret was the youngest of seven children.  She graduated from Bossier High School in 1958, and she attended LSU in Baton Rouge.   After marrying Rudy in 1959, she worked for Pak-A-Sak.  In the late 1960s she and Rudy, along with her brother Larry and his wife Gloria, bought Britt’s Grocery, which they owned for 35 years.  Margaret was a lifelong member of First United Methodist Church in Bossier City, where she was a charter member of the Midyett Bible Class.  

 

A very special thank-you to her nephew Gary Hackman and his wife Jenny for all their help over the years.
