ROCKWALL — Margaret Clawson, 82, passed away March 11, 2014, in Rockwall.

Margaret was born Feb. 17, 1931, to Robert and Iris Wheeler in Saltillo. Margaret would meet and later marry Bobby Clawson. To this union were born three children, Vicki, Kathy and Stephen.

Margaret worked for many years in quality control at Texas Instruments. She wore many hats and had many interests, but her greatest passions were her family and her church. Margaret loved spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was proud of her family and all their accomplishments. Margaret was also a faithful Christian devoted to her Savior and to her church. She would always witness to everyone she would meet and inviting them to her church. As ill health overcame her physically, she never complained as her faith appeared to grow stronger and spirit more at peace. Margaret was a loved member of the United Methodist Church in Caddo Mills. Her loving spirit, open heart and beautiful smile will be missed by all who knew her.

Margaret was preceded in death by her parents, Robert and Iris Wheeler; her beloved husband, Bobby Clawson; and her aunt, Bertha Wheeler.

Those left to celebrate her life include her son, Stephen Clawson and wife Kathy; daughters Vicki Palmer and husband Jim and Kathy Wise and husband David; grandchildren Jeff Gandy, Jamie Branch, Cassie Gandy, Nigel Gandy, Jacob Clawson and wife LaGina and Christi Nelson and husband Buddy; 12 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; sister Marian Leslie; and numerous extended family, friends and neighbors.

Margaret will especially be missed by her church family at the United Methodist Church of Caddo Mills.

A funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday at the United Methodist Church, 2500 First Street, Caddo Mills. Interment will be at Pine Forest Cemetery in Winnsboro later the same day.  

A gathering of family and friends will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. today at Peters Funeral Home.
