OBITUARY

Margaret Louise Skyberg

December 15, 1922March 20, 2021

Margaret was born on December 15, 1922, in Santa Cruz, California. At a young age, her family moved to San Jose, which is where she lived the majority of her life. In 1948, she married a young U.S. Navy sailor named Donald (Don) Skyberg. Don and Margaret were married 40 years. They had three children, James, Suzanne, and John. Don, her loving husband, preceded her in death on August 6, 1989.

While raising a family and managing the home front, Margaret also worked full time in the bustling food canning industry in San Jose. It was not easy working in the canneries with many long hours spent on her feet on an assembly line and then walking a considerable distance to and from work for her commute home, many times late at night.

In 1994 Margaret moved to Morgan Hill, California, where she lived in retirement until her death.

Margaret was preceded in death by her father James Comito, her mother Catherine (Maggiorre) Comito, her brother Bernard Comito, her sister Dorothy Cucciare, and her sister Helen Romeo. She is survived by her children, James Skyberg (Mary) of Nine Mile Falls, Washington, her daughter Suzanne DeBoard (Joe) of Morgan Hill, and her son John Skyberg (Jacque) of San Jose. She was the proud and loving grandmother to eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. She was also a loving aunt to many nieces and nephews.

Margaret was a child of God who loved the Lord and was a devout Catholic her entire life. She was a faithful member of Sacred Heart Church on Willow Street in San Jose the majority of her life.

She was known for her kind, sweet, loving and generous nature and was loved by all who knew her. She will be sorely missed, but is now resting comfortably in the arms of God.
