Margaret L. Browning 102, of Loves Park, passed away Saturday, January 13, 2018, at Crimson Pointe with her loving family by her side. "Those we hold most dear never truly leave us. They live on in the kindnesses they showed, the comfort they shared, and the love they brought into our lives." Margaret certainly lived those words to the fullest her entire life. She was born in a farming community in Iowa on March 6, 1915. She left there only after marrying Dwight on February 2, 1936. They moved to "the big cities" for his career throughout their 56 years together until his death in 1992. She leaves behind a small but grateful family for having her in our lives for such a long time. Her only child, Judy (Chuck) Fletcher, lives in Loves Park. Her granddaughters, Kris and Jill, also live in the area. She has two great-granddaughters, Mariela Margaret and Daniela Dominque, who came all the way from Guatemala to bring our family such joy. We'd like to thank Crimson Pointe for being her home away from home for 5 years. Their kindness and friendship will always be remembered. Also, we thank Heartland Hospice for assisting mom on her "journey".
Services will be private with Pastor Fred Alfrey assisting the family. In lieu of flowers, hug your loved ones extra tight. You're never ready to say goodbye, no matter the age. Sunset Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements.
