Margaret M. Reynolds, 74, passed away on May 27 at Benefis Healthcare of natural causes.
A memorial service will be held on Aug. 24 at the First Presbyterian Church in Conrad followed by a picnic for family and friends at the Legion Park in Conrad. Cremation has taken place under the direction of O’Connor Funeral Home.
Margaret was born April 16, 1939 to George and Ethel Moore in Conrad. She was raised with her three older sisters on the family farm in the Ledger area. She attended grade school at the Pioneer School and graduated from Conrad High School in 1957. Soon after, she married Charles Goodheart; they had four children in this union and later divorced. She was also married and divorced to Bill Reynolds. She was living at Benefis Extended Care in Great Falls at the time of her death.
Margaret was a great lover of life. She made friends easily and loved to visit in person or on the telephone whenever she could. She had many careers in her lifetime. The career she enjoyed the most was working as a live-in caretaker for sick and elderly clients. This took her to North Dakota, Wyoming and California. She loved to travel and especially loved living in the San Francisco/Napa Valley area. She was especially proud when her good friend Jaynie wrote a book about growing up in the Ledger area in the 1940s and mentioned Margaret and her family in the book. Margaret loved sewing, fishing, reading and cooking. She was very proud of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and would tell anyone who would listen all about their accomplishments.
Margaret’s family would like to thank the staff of Benefis Extended Care for their loving care and friendship to her.
Margaret is survived by her son, Greg (Robin) Goodheart of Billings; daughter Laura (Steve) Morrison of Helena; sister Dorothy Murrain of Conrad; seven grandchildren, two great-grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews and many friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents; sons, Douglas and David; sisters Norma McAdams and Edith Barker; and her former husbands.
