Obituary for Margaret Evelyn Pettus

Margaret Evelyn Pettus was born on September 8, 1935. She was born to Junious Pettus and Elizabeth Pettus in Chase City, Virginia.

Margaret attended Thyne Elementary School in Chase City, Virginia. She left Chase City at an early age and moved to Newark, New Jersey. Margaret attended Essex County Vocational School for Nursing. After graduating from Nursing School she worked as an LPN at Greystone Psychiatric Hospital in Morristown, New Jersey. She retired from Greystone after 38 years of service.

Margaret leaves behind: four sisters and one brother, Virginia C. Pettus of Chase City, Virginia, Maria Lyons of Elizabeth, New Jersey, Ruth Dickerson of West Orange, New Jersey, Robert Pettus of Sanford, Florida and Joyce Pettus of Irvington, New Jersey. Margaret also leaves behind a grandson, Franklin Pettus, and great granddaughters, Amirah Pettus and Amirnah Pettus. Margaret also ha s a host of nieces, nephews, and great nieces and nephews.

Aunt Marge, as she was called by many, was a second mother, friend and confidant. Most of all she was a loving mother to the late Sherry Pettus, loving grandmother to Franklin Pettus and great grandmother to Amirah and Amirnah Pettus.

You could write a book on all the acts of kindness that she showed to family as well as friends. The first chapter would tell the story of the compassion shown to others. The second chapter would be about all the understanding that she showed without judgment. The third chapter would talk about the love she had for her grandson and the delight she got out of her great granddaughters. The final chapter of her life is the most painful for her loved ones she leaves behind. But we will always remember her as a sister, grandmother and Aunt Marge.

Let us not mourn her passing, but remember the good times she shared with us. Just remember we will see her again one day.
