Margaret Jane Hayes Gilbert, born January 27, 1928 quietly slipped away to join loved ones in Heaven on January 15, 2013. She was preceded in death by her husband Irvin Lee Gilbert and her sister Betty Cooper. She is survived by her son Mike Gilbert, grandchildren Greg and Lauren Gilbert and nieces Jan and Joan Cooper and a multitude of friends. Margaret was a beautiful and giving person who will be remembered for her sweet spirit and generous heart. She was with and supported by her niece until her last breath; she will be sorely missed. There will be a private service in her hometown of Buna, Texas.
