Margaret Rose Bedient (91) passed away following a brief illness with family by her side. Marge "Irish" was born to Dr. Hugh J. O'Donnell and Helen (Foster) O'Donnell at Springview, Nebraska. The family traveled to rural Nebraska and South Dakota where her father worked with the government to improve health care on the Indian reservations. She graduated from Hot Springs High School. She moved to California with a friend to work at Lockheed Aircraft where she met her life companion and husband, Melvin "Bud" O Bedient. They were married June 23, 1945 at Yuma, Arizona. They moved to Idaho to work on the family farm at Wilder, Idaho, later moving to Caldwell, Idaho. Marge worked at the ID store in downtown Caldwell and at the Canyon County Assessor's office. She was a member of Beta Sigma Phi for 50+ years where she embraced the joy of sisterhood. Marge leaves behind her most precious accomplishments in life, her three sons, Michael O. Bedient (Sheri), Steven D. Bedient (Chris), and Marvin J. Bedient (Carol), along with 7 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. She also leaves behind a sister, Dorothy Beaird of Florida. She will be missed by all who loved her. A memorial of her life will be celebrated on her birthday at her son's home on June 25th at 16789 Lake Ave Caldwell, Idaho at 3:00 pm for friends and family. In lieu of flowers donations to Canyon County Meals on Wheels would be welcomed for all the great work they do every day. LIVE, LAUGH AND LOVE.
