Margaret E. Whyte Obituary
Margaret Elizabeth Whyte, devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother passed away Friday, December 29, 2017 at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center surrounded by her loving family. Services will be held on Wednesday, January 3 at Pomona Cemetery.

Margaret was born on April 4, 1917 in Audubon, Iowa to Victor and Elizabeth Jones. Margaret and her sister Ruth moved with their parents to Pomona, California circa 1920. Margaret was the oldest of four children. Her brothers Tom and George were born in Pomona.

After graduating from Pomona High, Margaret got her teaching degree from UC Santa Barbara. She taught 5th grade in Ontario before starting the career she always aspired to – wife and mother. On July 6, 1941, Margaret and Grenville Whyte were married at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Pomona.

Margaret and Grenville had four children – Richard Whyte, Mary Albertson (Whyte), Pat Holt (Whyte) and Dan Whyte. In addition to caring for her children, Margaret found time to help with PTA activities and taught Sunday School and helped on the Alter Guild at Saint Paul’s.

After raising her children, she volunteered at Pomona Valley Hospital with her good friend Doris Walker. She was truly the happiest when she was helping others.
