Obituary of Margaret Marie MacArthur

Please share a memory of Margaret to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Margaret Marie MacArthur, age 87, passed away peacefully at home on October 25, 2022 after a brief illness.    Margaret was born May 31, 1935 in Saginaw, Michigan to Harry F. Edwards and Bethel June Johnson. 


 Margaret’s family says she will be remembered for being an amazing artist.  Everyone loved her homemade cookies.  Margaret loved to play cards with family and friends and she enjoyed her scratch off lottery tickets.  She was known for wearing a flower in her hair, and for her beautiful blue eyes and contagious smile.  She was our angel on earth and now has gained her heavenly wings.


Margaret’s five children and her many grandchildren and great grandchildren are left to carry on her legacy of love and kindness.  Bethel MacArthur Cohee and Steve Brown, Don and Jeanna MacArthur, Marge MacArthur Burke and Craig McMorris, Bud and Becky MacArthur and Art and Victoria Pufford.  Recently Margaret was joyfully reunited with her son Art, whom she lovingly gifted to another family. 



She was preceded in death by her six siblings, Elcina, Delphine, Betty, Ruth, Mick Sr., and Harry.  She was also preceded in death by a son, William Hall; and two sons-in-law, Larry Cohee Sr.  and Edward O’Dell.


No funeral service is planned, per her wishes, and cremation has taken place.  A Celebration of Life will take place next summer, and will be marked with a cookout.  To sign online guestbook, visit  Arrangements made with the Cremation Society of Mid Michigan.
