Margaret L. George, 97, Grand MeadowPublished 10:27am Monday, May 20, 2013
Margaret L. George, 97, of Grand Meadow, Minn., and formerly of LeRoy, Minn., died Friday night at the Grand Meadow Health Care Center.
Margaret Lucille Jones was born March 12, 1916, to Curtis Jones and Margarett (Hanson) Jones. She attended and graduated from LeRoy High School in 1934 and was united in marriage to Floyd George on March 14, 1936, in Cresco, Iowa.
Margaret enjoyed fishing, cooking, gardening and spending time with family. She loved playing games, especially cards and Scrabble. As she lost her eyesight, she enjoyed legos to occupy her time and also going for rides and out to eat. She loved when family came to visit and going to the annual Jones Reunion. The last few months were blessed as she moved from her assisted-living apartment into the nursing home and she was able to spend more time with her sister, Marie Peterson.
Margaret will live forever in the hearts of her loving family, even though she has joined her heavenly family.
We know in our hearts that she, and the loved ones who went before her, are fishing to their hearts content as they wait for the rest of us to join them.
She is survived by four children, Leonard (Nancy) George of Excelsior, Minn., Harold (Lois) George of Madison, S.D., Lucille Flanum of Annandale, Minn., and Beverly (LeRoy) Lloyd of Range, Wis.; 11 grandchildren; 35 great-grandchildren; 12 great-great-grandchildren; and one sister, Marie Peterson of Grand Meadow. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Floyd; two brothers, Wilbur and Edward; 1 sister, Emma; and a son-in-law, Lloyd.

Burial will be in the Chester Hill Cemetery in Chester, Iowa. Visitation will be from 5 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 21, 2013, at the Hindt Funeral Home in Grand Meadow.
