Margaret T. Huff

Margaret T. Huff passed away on Friday, November 16, 2012 in Oceanside, CA. She was predeceased by her husband, George W. Huff in August 2010. They were married 62 years. Also a son, George Richard Huff, who died in September 1974.
Margaret was loved by all and never knew a stranger. She could find out more about a complete stranger in five minutes and they didn't even know she was drilling them. She had lost most of her sight but that didn't keep her home. She was very active and very sharp. She had a quick wit and loved to laugh.
She belonged to the Garden City Grange #280 and had been a member for 57 years. She had been their Chaplain for many years. In past years she was Master numerous times, as was her husband, George.
She belonged to Tolero Rebekah Lodge, #119 in Monroe and had been a Rebekah for 40 years. She was a Past Noble Grand many times over and Treasurer for many years, until she lost her sight.
She was a 25 year member of the Snohomish TOPS/KOPS. She especially enjoyed the Ralley Days. After she joined to lose 20 pounds, she just stayed on because she enjoyed the many friendships she had made there.
Over 50 years ago, eight women got together and would meet once a month in each others home for dinner and chit chat. They named themselves the Friendship Club. There are now only two members left.
Margaret had three special friends, Marie Belcher, Jaqui Betts, and Lorraine Livingood. She thought of all of them as daughters.
Margaret is survived by five living children, Patricia Harris of Seattle, WA, Thomas Jones of Eugene, OR, Gail (Floyd) Malin of Vista, CA, Karen Perecz of Ft. Smith, AR and Michael (Shannon) Huff of Snohomish, WA; 15 grandchildren, one deceased, Laurie Perecz; 23 great-grand-children, and 10 great-great-grandchildren.
Her celebration of life will be held on January 5, 2013 at 1:30 p.m. in Snohomish LDS Church - 13616 92nd St. SE, Snohomish.
Her cremains will be laid to rest next to her husband at G.A.R. Cemetery in Snohomish, WA.
