July 30, 1926 ~ November 14, 2010
SEASIDE - Mrs. Margaret McGee, 84, a longtime resident of the Monterey Peninsula, departed this life on November 14, 2010 at San Jose Regional Medical Center as the result of a car accident. She was born on July 30, 1926 and was the second of five girls.
She attended Wellton Elementary and Booker T. Washington Junior/High School in Glade Water, TX. Mrs. McGee relocated to the Monterey Peninsula where she continued her education at Monterey Peninsula College, receiving her preschool teaching credential.
For 27 years, she worked for the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District, and spent most of those years as a preschool teacher at Seaside Children's Center. Mrs. McGee was the beloved teacher of many students who fondly remember her welcoming early in the morning and staying late in the evening until their parent picked them up.
She met and married her husband of 62 years, Pastor Welton McGee and relocated to the Monterey Peninsula in the early 50s. To this union three children were born, Sandra, Patricia and Welton Jr. She also has six granddaughters and eight great grandchildren.
Upon arriving on the Peninsula in the early 50s, Mrs. McGee attended the Greater Victory Temple COGIC, under the leadership of the late Bishop S.R. Martin, where she served as the church musician until her husband founded the Emmanuel COGIC, Seaside, CA in 1959.
She \was preceded in death by her parents, Olivia and Ellis Campbell; two sisters, Edna and Dorothy; and her son, Welton McGee, Jr.
Two services have been planned to celebrate the life of Mrs. Margaret McGee: Friday, November 19, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. at the Emmanuel COGIC, 1450 Sonoma Avenue, Seaside and Saturday, November 20, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. at the Greater Victory Temple COGIC, 1620 Broadway Avenue, Seaside.
