Margarette Wagoner was born to Edith Elizabeth (Nobles) and Lewis Clyde Sharpe in Eden, Texas, February 12, 1919 and went to be with the Lord February 18, 2019. Her mother was staying with her parents on their ranch while her father was serving in the military in the Great War. A telegram was sent to him at her birth, which he carried for many years in his wallet. As a young girl she moved with her family from West Texas to the Hill Country, living in Llano, Marble Falls and Kingsland. Early on she had a propensity for sewing and beautiful handwork which she enjoyed for many years. She helped her parents in their Home Steam Laundry in Marble Falls, also helping with the rearing of her eight brothers and sisters, until her parents moved to Austin to find other work, and then stayed on the farm to take care of her brothers until they, too, moved away. Mother came to know the Lord as a young teenager and lived for Him always. After marriage she lived in Austin and occasionally in San Francisco, while her husband, Ollie, worked there. After moving permanently back to Austin, she brought five children more to our family whom we all loved as our own. More recently, she has lived in Bastrop, La Grange and Elgin.
She is predeceased by her parents, husband Ollie Wagoner, brothers Ross Olen, Otto, Jesse, Lewis, Jr., and John, sister Tresban, sisters-in-law Beatrice, Janice and Wanda Sharpe, son Dean Wagoner and daughter Peggie Gustafson Hendrix, Marcella and Denver Johnson and granddaughter Sharon Bridges.
