Margaret Joan Powell was born March 28, 1939, in Baker, Oregon to Earl and Lucille Powell. She went to school in Union, after her family moved there for her father to work at the logging company, and graduated high school in 1957. On July 21, 1958 she married Harold Norman "Tony" Moss at the First Christian Church in La Grande. Margaret's greatest joy in life was her son, who she adored. Her proudest accomplishment was being a mother. She loved puzzles and challenges in word games. Her creative hands were always busy knitting and crocheting some of the most beautiful doilies and table cloths. She was so very crafty, making cherished blankets and afghans for many loved ones. She delighted in coloring bright beautiful pictures, designs, and enjoyed color in every shade, combination, and blend.
She was preceded in death by her husband Harold "Tony" Moss (April 2003), and beloved son, Tracy Moss (November 2021).
Margaret will be remembered by her wonderful daughter in law, Kathy Moss, her loving sister Bonnie (Powell) Lambert, and many nieces and nephews.
