Margie Jane (Lemon) Armantrout Obituary
Margie Jane (Lemon) Armantrout

Margie passed peacefully on June 8, 2018 at home surrounded by family. She was brought into this world by Frank C Lemon and Elaine Mae Lemon on June 23, 1934 in Kansas. She grew up in Manhattan, Kansas and attended Kansas State University earning a B.S. in Medical Technology. She had many classmates that she loved and last August attended her 65th high school reunion.
She married Leon Hines Armantrout in an evening ceremony at the First Congregational Church on May 28, 1960 and has three children, Julie Kay (Armantrout) Kasarjian, Jeffrey Kent Armantrout, and Jami Kathryn (Armantrout) Spencer, daughter-in-law Tawney Armantrout and son-in-law Kevin Spencer. She is also survived by three (almost 4!) grandchildren, Elaine Mary Alice Spencer, Logan Kevin Spencer and Jane Rae Armantrout.
She worked for years at Redlands Community Hospital as the Director of the Clinical Laboratory. Margie and Leon founded Montessori in Redlands 40 years ago as young parents. Margie said, "I wanted Montessori because I wanted world peace." She was also very involved with the creation of the Grove School, Redlands Conservancy and still worked in the family business The Mitten Building. She and Leon were actively involved with the acquisition and preservation of Prospect Park, Heritage Park, the Barton Schoolhouse and the Mitten Building. Margie also supported the Y Circus and was a member of the Community Circus Arts Corporation.
The family would like to invite everyone to join them to celebrate her life on Thursday, June 28th at 6 pm at the Heritage Park and Barton Schoolhouse in Redlands, California. Donations can be made to the Armantrout Montessori Education Foundation, 200 Nevada Street, Redlands, CA 92373. Checks can be made payable to AMEF.
