Margaret G. Beaird

November 25, 1940May 7, 2018

Margaret G. Beaird, 77, went peacefully and gracefully to her heavenly home on May 7, 2018 surrounded by her adoring family. Margaret was born to Lee and Lucille London in Muskogee, Oklahoma on November 25, 1940. In 1951, her family moved to Visalia, California where she met the love of her life, Charlie Beaird. Married when she was 16, Margaret and Charlie enjoyed 59 years together. Their love for each other and their family is a true lasting legacy to their children and grandchildren. Margaret was a composed, good-humored, and warmhearted lady— a source of wisdom and compassion to her children. She was proud of her short tenure at K-Mart, but the occupation that was dear to her heart was making her home a loving place to raise her children and grandchildren. Margaret also enjoyed a lifelong love of reading— her bookshelves were filled of novels she had completed throughout her life. Margaret and Charlie joined the congregation of Calvary Holiness Church, now Calvary Worship Center in 1976 and became pillars of the church. Their love for Jesus shone through all of their interactions, and became a prevailing theme for the rest of their lives. Margaret served her church well, teaching children and youth in Sunday School, and by demonstrating the life of a true “Proverbs 31 woman.” Margaret is survived by her son, Robert Beaird; her daughters, Lori Anderson (Mark Anderson) and Karen Anderson (Daniel Anderson); Her grandchildren, Keri Gilson, Kenny Anderson (Kendra Anderson), Jeremiah Anderson, Tim Anderson (Cheryl Anderson), Charlie Anderson (Lindsey Anderson), and Joseph Anderson; Her great-grandchildren, Nathan Gilson, Dillon Gilson, Aubre Anderson, Bristol Anderson, Joshua Anderson, Jacob Anderson, and Elizabeth Anderson; Her “bonus grand-daughter and great-grandson”, Samantha Huckabay and Nathaniel Huckabay; Her brother, T.L. London (Debbie London); her sisters, Shirley Sams (Bobby Sams) and Charlotte Dearman (John Dearman); and her numerous nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her husband, Charlie Beaird; her son, Michael Beaird; her brothers, Charles Renfro, Odie Renfro, and David London. There will be a viewing for Margaret on Sunday, May 13 from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. at Miller Memorial Chapel, 1120 W. Goshen Avenue in Visalia, California. She will be laid to rest at Visalia District Cemetery on Monday, May 14 at 10:00 a.m. Margaret’s celebration of life service will be held at Calvary Worship Center, 3890 S.
