Margaret E. Hutton, 97, of Lee’s Summit, MO, passed away on Thursday, July 22, 2021.
Margaret was born on September 17, 1923 in Moberly, MO to Clyde and Geneva (White) Hibler. On November 28, 1939 she married Everett V. Erdwins and they had two children, Gary L. Erdwins and Valory A.

Margaret was blessed with a long and interesting life, she lived through the Great Depression, worked making ammunition and glider planes during WW II, and after staying home to raise four children, she finished her working years as a floral designer. She was a faithful member of Fellowship Greenwood Baptist Church. She had a million stories and loved to entertain. Margaret loved her family, and those she considered family. Gathering them around her was the highlight of her later years.

Our family was so blessed by our sweet neighbor Margaret. She was sharp as a tack and had a much better memory than me (or anyone I knew). Boy she remembered things from 90 years ago! And her stories. I could listen to her for hours. What a joy she was to have in our life. I am so grateful. I never saw her upset or angry. She was so kind and forgiving and full of spunk! She joked about making sure she had her lipstick on in case she fell and the attractive EMS guys had to come. Her perspective on life made everyone feel better and she could talk me out of a slump in nothing flat. So many are better because of her influence. She loved Jesus and her faith was the center of all she did. You could see Gods love shining through in all she did. Thank you Margaret for affecting me so positively. We love you!
So sorry for your loss!
