Margaret and Richard were some of the original members of Wildflower Unitarian Universalist Church and were 30+ year members of the Unitarian Universalist Church. Margaret loved her Wildflower Covenant Group and dear Wildflower friends. Margaret and Richard spent years planning and were proud of the beautiful Victorian-style home they built in Austin.

Margaret is survived by her daughter, Nada Frazier of Florida; her brothers, Dickie Stahl (Patsy), Ray Stahl (Caroline) and Johnny Stahl (Patty) of the Stockdale, Texas area; and 8 grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
