Margaret M. Owens, 89, of West Pittston, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Monday.
A funeral service for immediate family members will be held today at Memorial Shrine Cemetery, Pa.
Margy was the daughter of the late Martin and Mae McHale of Pittston. She was the devoted wife of the late William D. Owens Jr. and the mother of Barbara, N.J.; Linda and her husband, Larry Selenski, Wyoming; Bill Owens and Nancy, Shavertown.
Her son Jack Owens, Scranton, preceded her in death.
She was a loving sister to Anne Campbell, Columbus, Ohio, and the late Jack McHale and Jeanne Stanton, Pittston. She was "Gram" to Stacie and her husband, Jason Jordan, Dallas; Michael, Medford Lakes, N.J.; Maggie, Medford Lakes, N.J.; Larry and his wife, Melissa Selenski, Kingsley, Pa.; Jeffrey and his wife, Felisha, Germany; and made "great" by Damien, Rocky, Campbell, Vivian, Guy, Jack and Gracie.

She could often be heard singing, "This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it" from Psalm 118:24.
Our sincere and heartfelt gratitude goes out to the staff at Geisinger South Hospice, Wilkes-Barre.
