Margaret Elizabeth Hartzler, age 89, of Mission Viejo, California passed away on Friday January 3, 2020. Margaret (better known as Liz) was born October 29, 1930, in Richmond Indiana to Frank and Margaret Crye. She was the youngest of four brothers Fred, Allan, Charlie and Kenny, and one sister Lucille all of whom preceded her in passing.

She married Earl Hartzler of Richmond Indiana in 1951 and spent the next 30 years as a Marine Corps wife living in California, Hawaii, Virginia and North Carolina. Earl passed away in 1991 from cancer. She is survived by her children Kim, Kevin, Kellie, Keyna, Kory and Matt. All live in Southern California except for Matt who resides in Texas.

After raising her children she worked 28 years as a secretary for the Saddleback Unified School District. This was a very important and enjoyable part of her life.

Liz was such a “bright star” in my world. One of our favorite things to do was to grab a cup of coffee at the Spectrum and find a nice comfortable warm place to sit to chat and people watch. Invariably, we’d bump into one of her many friends, and I loved listening to their stories. Liz was my warm caring friend, and I will miss her greatly! She always brightened my day. Thank you for the fond memories, Liz. You made my life richer. Miss you, Liz! Karen
