Margaret A. Roe

Margaret A. Roe, 73, Windsor, MO, died Wednesday, February 15th, in Lawrence, KS, at the home of her daughter. She had battled cancer for two years with much bravery and optimism.
Margaret was born on April 12, 1938, in Benton County, near Windsor, Mo., the youngest child of Floyd and Roberta Mothersbaugh, and their only daughter. She graduated from high school in Lincoln, Mo., in 1956. Her graduating class always meant a lot to her, and she eagerly looked forward to all class reunions, adding many pictures to her scrap booking hobby throughout the years.
On May 5, 1957, Margaret married Dale Roe of Stover, MO., living in the Windsor area where they raised two children, Charles and Brenda. Her husband passed away on July 25, 1999.
Margaret worked at a variety of businesses in Windsor, cared for her Mother in her declining years, but loved being a homemaker most of all. She enjoyed quilting, crocheting, sewing and taught herself the art of upholstering car interiors to help her son’s hobby of refurbishing classic cars. Margaret loved attending all her grandkids’ activities, including concerts, performances and sporting activities. Margaret was a wonderful cook and loved to bake, especially at Christmas. She made huge cookie platters for co-workers during the holiday season. She and her daughter Brenda shared their love of cooking and shopping throughout her life. Margaret was a member of the First Baptist Church in Windsor and enjoyed her time with the Bible study group Silver Threads, and cooked for shut-ins with the group Soul Foods. She was the heart of her home and always made everyone feel so loved and welcome.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Dale and four older brothers, Lawrence, Leonard, Marshall and Roland.
Survivors include her son Charles Roe and wife Lisa of Windsor, MO, daughter Brenda Schulteis and husband Bill of Lawrence, KS, grandsons Steven and Ryan, granddaughter Lauren, great-grandsons Levi, Layne, Dylan and Trevor, a brother Willis Mothersbaugh and his wife, Dixie, of Lee’s Summit, MO; and many nieces and nephews and extended family members.
