Margaret Ann Veberes fell asleep peacefully in Jesus on August 14, 2017, just a couple weeks after her 79th birthday. She was born July 26, 1938 in Salem, Oregon, the eldest daughter of Allyn and Margaret Phillips.
Margaret met her husband, Ronald Veberes on a blind date at Oregon State University and they were married 45 years until his death. They moved to Renton, Washington in 1964. She worked as a bank teller, raised 4 children and was able to use her leadership talents as PTA president, 4-H leader, King County Fair Superintendent, in her church, and in the Lutheran Women’s Mission Society. Later in life she obtained her AA degree from Highline CC. She loved to cook, sew, garden, and support her children and grandchildren in their activities.
Thank you to the loving caregivers at Weatherly Inn in Kent who made her last 3 years after her strokes as pleasant as possible.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, August 26th at 2 pm at Divine Peace Lutheran Church, 17215 128th Ave SE, Renton.
