Margaret B. Harrell

Virginia Beach – Margaret Ann Boykin Harrell, 94, of 3100 Shore Dr., died peacefully in her sleep on December 12th, 2007, surrounded by her three children. Margaret was born in South Norfolk, Va. to the late Ocie O. and Jessie Hand Boykin. She was preceded in death by her husband, Jason R. Harrell, and a son, Randolph Harrell.

Margaret is survived by her three children, Susan Harrell and her husband Richard Bowden, Ellen Grondin and her husband William Boerner, and Marshall P. Harrell and his wife Jaclyn. Margaret also leaves behind five loving grandchildren, Ashley and Aaron Grondin, and Meghan, Merritt, and Carsen Harrell. She is also survived by her aunt, Mrs. Ruby Hand.

After graduating from Harrisonburg Teachers College in 1933 Margaret spent many years working as an educator. She tirelessly devoted her time to helping others work towards getting a better education. Margaret was a charter member of Bayside Presbyterian Church and an active member for many years. She was also a Guardian of Jobs Daughters Bethel 62, and a member of The Order of the Eastern Star. After retiring from the Chesapeake School system she found time to indulge her love of traveling, golf, gardening, and spending time with her family. Margaret lived life to the fullest and she will be missed by all.

The family wishes to acknowledge and express their appreciation to the nurses and staff on the 2nd floor Health Care Center at Westminster Canterbury for their excellent care and devotion to our mother during her final years.

A memorial service will be held Sunday, at 3:00 p.m., December 16th, at Bayside Presbyterian Church 1400 Ewell Rd., Va. Beach. The Reverend Dr. Richard Keever, pastor, will officiate. There will be a reception following the service. Altmeyer Funeral Home, Southside Chapel, in Virginia Beach is handling the arrangements.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers donations be made to either the Virginia Beach SPCA or to Bayside Presbyterian
