Margaret J. Garberson died on June 25 in Missoula, MT following a bout of
age-associated declining health.
A resident of San Antonio and Hollywood Park for over 40 years, she had been
visiting her family in Montana when she was initially hospitalized in
October and later entered a nursing home in Missoula.
Born on July 5, 1921, Margaret was the only child of Charles D. and Fairy
Biggerstaff of Denver, Colorado. She was a 1938 graduate of Manual Training
High School, Denver and was an alumnus of the then Colorado College of
Education (Greeley) class of 1943. She was married to Lt Col John R.
Garberson, USAF (Ret.) for over 55 years before his death in 1998. She is
survived by son, John M. (Gus) and wife, Lynn of Potomac, MT; son, Charles
A. and wife, Jan of Midwest City, OK; grandchildren, Cheryl Garberson of
Brooksville, FL and Holley Blakeney of Ewing, NJ; and great grandchild,
Kathrine Garberson, of Macon, GA. Music, people, the Air Force, and her
church all played a big part in Margaret's life. In high school she was a
member of the Denver All City Orchestra, and she continued her interest in
music throughout her life. She was a member of the Northeast Baptist Church
choir and the church's longtime organist and secretary. She was also a
longtime member of the San Antonio Chapter of the Freedoms Foundation at
Memorial gifts may be donated to Northeast Baptist Church, 2930 Bitters Rd,
