Margaret Webster Obituary
Margaret (Porter) Webster, 94, of Salem, NH passed away peacefully on February 25 at Saint Teresa Nursing Center surrounded by her family.

She was born on March 1, 1922 in Brattleboro, VT to the late Perley and Mary Ellen (Larkin) Porter. She graduated from Saint Michael High School in Brattleboro and worked for the Latchis Company, a local corporation where she was office manager and personal assistant to the company owner. She later worked part time in the office at Central Vermont Public Service, also in Brattleboro.

Margaret married Harold Webster in 1944, and she eventually gave up her career to be a full time mother. She and her husband were active in the Brattleboro Elks and in other civic organizations. A devout Catholic, Margaret was very involved at Saint Michael church and was a member of the Daughters of Isabella. In 1968 they moved to Salem, NH where she lived for almost 50 years. Margaret was a Eucharistic Minister at Saint Joseph church and was an active volunteer at Saint Joseph school.

Margaret's greatest joy was her family, and her beloved home was the gathering place for countless family dinners, holidays, and other celebrations. Family and friends were always welcome and their visits brought her much happiness.

During her stay at Saint Teresa Nursing Center she enjoyed the company of her roommate and the entire staff, who welcomed her with compassion and love. She had fun playing BINGO and attending the weekly musical entertainment, and always enjoyed the holiday and special event parties.

Margaret is survived by her son, Robert and wife Patricia (Kearney); her daughter, Kelly McIntire and husband Scott; 3 grandchildren, Mary Ellen McIntire, Kevin McIntire, and Jill McIntire; her sister-in-law, Helen Porter, and several nieces and nephews. She also leaves wonderful neighbors and several close friends to whom she and her family are very thankful for their help and support in her later years.

In addition to her parents, Margaret was predeceased by her husband of 60 years, Harold Webster; 3 sisters, Gladys Webster, Doris Guiheen, and Irma Shaw; 2 brothers, John Porter and Jimmy Porter; 3 nephews, Stephen Guiheen, Peter Shaw, and Jay Porter, and one niece, Janice Porter.
