Margaret Walter was born in Bloomington, Texas, Feb. 27, 1919 to Roy Hix Wyscarver and Mathilda Agatha Riemenschneider. She had two older brothers, Allan and Norman Wyscarver who predeceased her.
She married Harrison Walter Dec. 1, 1945, at her parents' home in Woodsboro, Texas, and they moved to Colorado, where they raised two sons, Mark who predeceased her and Bryce. Harrison predeceased her in 1994.
Margaret taught elementary school for more than 40 years. The family moved to Fort Lupton in 1969. She retired from Fort Lupton RE-8 School District in 1980 but loved volunteering in the school reading to the children long after she retired. She was an avid reader her entire life and enjoyed music and games. There were few who could beat her in a game of dominoes. She loved to tell stories of her childhood and youth in Texas picking cotton with her family. Margaret loved her family and visiting with her sons and grandchildren.
She amassed collections of photos from family trips and she and her husband wrote the story of their WWII courtship and marriage, including three years of love letters to pass on to future generations. Survivors include her son, Bryce, and wife Michele; daughter-in-law, Tori Haines; grandchildren, Lucas, Craig, Amanda, Amy, Louise and Jessie; eight great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. A graveside celebration of life will be in the spring in Fort Lupton.
