Along with her parents, Margaret was also preceded in death by her husbands, Otis Martin, Ray Hearp and Jack Love; her infant children, Carol and Johnny Martin; her brothers, James Basham, Glen Basham and Richard Basham; and her infant sister, Beatrice Basham.

Losing a Mother leaves a void which cannot be filled. Aunt Margaret was special and will be missed by many. She is surely resting in peace. Cherish all the memories and photos! Keep the faith Kenny!
