Margaret Ann O'Connor, succumbed from a heart attack last Monday, July 16, 2018, aged 66. Margaret was born in Bogota, Colombia, and raised in Rochester, NY. Predeceased by parents Thomas P. and Mary C. O'Connor, she was a 1970 graduate of Our Lady of Mercy H.S. and received a BFA from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 1974. A skilled multimedia artist, she had a keen eye and hand for beauty. Relocating to Oregon in the 90's, she found renewed inspiration in nature and outdoor activities. Margaret was a free spirit and risk-taker, admired by all for her wit, and avant garde style. Margaret's ashes were scattered in a scenic venue in the company of friends and family. Margaret is survived by brothers Kevin (Lily), Brian (Elaine), Neil and sisters Martha (Dan) and Eileen Kennedy, and seven nieces and nephews.
