Margaret "Midge" Sarah McDowall

 

Margaret "Midge" Sarah McDowall passed away in Corvallis, OR on the 8th of April, 2016 with loving family and care givers by her side.

Midge was born to James and Minnie McDowall on the 10th of February, 1927 near Pine Bluffs, WY.

She is survived by her brother Jim McDowall of Kimball, NE and her three daughters, Sharon Johnston and Teresa Matteson of Oregon and Marian Gorden of Washington. She was preceded in death by her parents and brother, Dick McDowall.

Midge has five grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.

She loved to host family gatherings and enjoyed traveling to visit extended family. The Oregon coastal area inspired Midge to take up painting and some of her favorite subjects were the lighthouses, breaking waves, and seagulls.

She was our best friend, our sister, and our mother, and she is will be dearly missed.

A family reunion will be held at the Oregon coast this summer in her memory.

"And like a passing thought, She fled in light away." Robert Burns
