Margaret Stoneberg

Margaret Mary Stoneberg, 55, passed away Saturday, Dec. 7, 2013, at Eagle Rock Assisted Living in Idaho Falls.

She was born Feb. 2, 1958, in Idaho Falls to Arne George Stoneberg and Eleanor Mae Stoneberg. Born and raised in Idaho Falls, Margaret attended local schools and graduated from Idaho Falls High School and was active in pep club. Plagued by mental illness in her late teens, she was a longtime resident in assisted-living facilities in Ucon and Rigby before returning to Idaho Falls.

Margaret was recognized by face and welcomed by name at the nearby convenience stores. She enjoyed shopping, eating out, watching football, camping and going to the movies, and shared a special connection to her sister, Berta.

Always quick to greet people with "Hello, Sweetie, don't you look nice today," Margaret had a loving soul. Those who knew her well were blessed by her bright eyes and her sense of humor. She died from pancreatic cancer. We love you, Beautimus.

She is survived by three brothers and one sister, Larry Stoneberg of Boise, Mark (Lorie) Stoneberg of Idaho Falls, Ken (Susan) Stoneberg of Rigby and Berta (Mike) Oates of Ogden, Utah.

She was preceded in death by her parents and a brother, Keith Stoneberg.

The family wishes to acknowledge and thank all the care providers, especially the ACT Team and the Eagle Rock Assisted Living Facility for their unconditional love and support.

Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 11, at Buck-Miller-Hann Funeral Home, 825 E. 17th St. in Idaho Falls, with Deacon Wence Rodriquez officiating. A viewing for family and friends will be held one hour prior to funeral services. Burial will be in Fielding Memorial Park Cemetery in Idaho Falls.

Suggested memorial contributions can be made to the Huntsman Cancer Institute or Pancreatic Cancer Society.
