Margaret Pacheco Thomas

Reno - On September 6, 2018 Margaret (Pacheco) Thomas died. She was born on January 5, 1931 in Tonopah, NV to Iwee (Allen) and Rosario Pacheco who both proceeded her in death. She spent eight years living in and attending Stewart Indian School in Carson City, NV and often spoke of this as "Home" (the above picture shows her standing by a student dormitory while on tour and visiting this historical site - 2014). After graduating in 1950, she settled in Reno and together with her lifelong sweetheart, Harry Daniel Thomas Sr. whom she married, they began to raise a family until his death. Margaret loved and cared for her children and worked hard to provide them with the home she lived in. Her greatest love (which she embraced for over 60 years) was becoming one of Jehovah's Witnesses. She took a firm stand for what the Bible says and teaches with all her consciousness to the very end. Others proceeding her in death are sons, Harry Daniel Jr., and Timothy Wayne; brothers, Luis, and Thomas Pacheco; sister, Beatrice Bengochea. Those surviving Margaret are one sister, Francis Hooper (Ernie); three children, Ralph Vernon Sr., Leland "Stubby" (Joann), and Sharon Diane (Kelly); grandchildren, Ralph Jr., Jed, Anita, Jackie (Blues), Dana (Tony Sr.), Jerod Daniel (of Wisconsin), and Janet; great-grandchildren, Hayley (James) Bryce, Dion, Raquel, Kristina, Christopher, Ethan, Alizah, Olivia, Josie, Tony Jr., Joseph, Tyranny, Reanna, Sean, Tania, and Terrell; great-great-grandchildren, Sonya Amythest Rose, and Margaret Rose; and numerous nieces and nephews. The children of Margaret would like to thank Renown Hospice - Doctors, Nurses and CNA's for their care and assistance during this time; this was a provision and was greatly appreciated by her family. Viewing will take place on Friday, September 14, 2018 from 6-8 pm at Walton's Ross, Burke & Knobel Mortuary, 2155 Kietzke Lane, Reno, NV 89502.
