Margaret Ciatto Obituary
Margaret (Margi) Lynam Ciatto 69, was welcomed by the loving hands of God on July 28th, 2014. She was born in Leigh, England to Patrick & Christina Lynam of Ireland.
Margi is survived by her children Monica, Rebecca, Paul, & Anthony; brothers John and Kevin Lynam, daughter-in-law Amy Ciatto; son-in-laws Oscar Montemayor & Anthony Payne; granddaughters Olivia & Noelle Montemayor; nieces, nephews, and cousins in the US and UK.
Margi was a loving wife and mother who spent her life in service to others. Her parents immigrated to the United States in 1947 (?) and settled in Houston, TX. Margi and her brothers grew up in St. Teresa Parish, where they also attended school. Margi graduated from St. Agnes Academy (Class of 1963) and went on to study nursing at University of the Incarnate Word (Class of 1969). After graduation, she began her 45 year nursing vocation with the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word at St. Joseph Hospital, then in 2000 transferred to the Villa de Matel. Margi also fought to empower Houston's low-income communities as a Community Organizer with The Metropolitan Organization (TMO).
In 1978, Margi met her great love of 34 years, Sam Ciatto. Overwhelmed by this elegant and strong woman, Sam proposed to Margi on their second date. After an appropriate 'cooling off' period, Margi said 'yes', the two married, and started their family. Margi's pride and joy were her four children (her chicks).
However, Margi's family extended far beyond her home. She was mother and sister to many, far too many to name. She expressed her love in many ways including baked goods, quilts, phone calls, cards, parties, and providing sincere advice. Margi enjoyed gardening, sewing, sipping hot tea, reading, crafts, holidays, and holy days. She will be missed.
The family will receive friends on Friday August 1st for Visitation beginning at 5:00 p.m. with the Rosary at 7:00 p.m. The Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:00 AM on Saturday August 2nd. Both services will be held at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church, 3600 Brinkman, Houston, TX 77018 with interment at Woodlawn Garden of Memories. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Margi's name to Casa Juan Diego, P. O. Box 70113, Houston, TX 77270 (cjd.org) or Discalced Carmelite Nuns 1100 Parthenon Place, New Caney, TX 77357-3276.
