Margaret Louise Schwitters, 98, died in Sammamish on Sept. 26, 2013.

She is survived by her children Roy (Karen) and Elizabeth (Bob) Rodriguez; four grandchildren, Marc, Anne, Adam and Joseph; two stepgrandchildren, Nancy and Jim; four great-grandchildren; and many extended family members.

She was born in Beach, N.D., on June 12, 1915, the daughter of Roy and Lois Boyer. She graduated from Orcas Island High School in 1932, and married Walter Schwitters, who pre-deceased her in 1983.

Margaret worked for many years in the Seattle district office of Fuller Brush Co., and later for City Moving and Storage. She was on the board at Providence Point in Issaquah, where she resided, and was a poll volunteer during elections over the years.

She was an enthusiastic traveler and visited many countries on several continents. She enjoyed bridge with her numerous friends, flower arranging, crossword puzzles and Yahtzee. She had a wonderful curiosity about the world and was an avid reader.

The family wishes to express their appreciation and thanks to Ana, Gregory and Marion at Ana’s Adult Family Home in Sammamish for their care of Margaret these last few months.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests remembrances to Child Haven, Union Gospel Mission or a charity of one’s choice.

A celebration of Margaret’s life will be at 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19, 2013, at Our Place, the restaurant in Providence Point.

Friends are invited to view photos, get directions and share memories in the family’s online guest book at
