Margaret L. “Margo” “Maggie” L.

nee: Kingsbury

Began her journey home November 5th, 2018 at the age of 69.

Beloved wife of Ron Tepley. Devoted mom of Hope Szabelski, Mike (Theresa) Szabelski, Sharon (Jim) Bradshaw and the late Randy Tepley. Affectionate grandma of Randi, Jamie, Noah, Ethan, Erin and Evan. Sister of Ken Block, Herb Kingsbury and the late Chuck Kingsbury.

A memorial visitation will take place Sunday, November 11, 2018 at THE FUNERAL HOME from 10-11am with a Celebration of Life to follow.

A special thank you to Michelle and Linda for the love and care shown to Auntie Margo over the years.

Margo will be fondly remembered for her amazing sense of humor, love of cooking shows (especially anything involving bacon!) and her never-ending devotion to family. She could often be found enjoying time outdoors and in the garden and also at the Wilmot Flea market searching for treasures. Her numerous Facebook friends will miss the motivational posts she shared daily.

Growing up with the Kingsbury’s, I have many memories from Mayfield and Slinger School. Always forthright, she had one male teacher :man:‍:school: in :sob: tears. He was a very sensitive man and it was his first year teaching…and maybe his last! One mystery is when she drove my VW bug home when I went with someone else. She did something…maybe got a ticket :oncoming_police_car: ..but something happened that she was sheepish about. Will miss her Facebook posts, sharing insights and laughter. In her honor I will always think of her when I see, hear or smell bacon . And it will be a pleasant memory indeed. Blessings to all of us you were blessed to have known her. Hugs :hugging_face:

Margo trained me at the bank. She was endearing, patient, funny, and understanding. Just a lovely and wonderful person to know. She had a way of being able to put a person at ease. I will miss her observations about the girls, her garden, and her stories. She also had to most beautiful eyes. My heart aches for her family and all of us that will miss her so.
We were only facebook friends the last few years but I felt like we were still close.
I love you Margo, and wherever you are I hope there is room for a pony.

Margaret Lilian Kingsbury was a childhood friend back in Mayfield. It was delightful to reconnect with her as a Facebook friend. She was such a positive, good-natured woman. Margo had a gift for sharing life’s simple blessings. Here’s a ‘cuppa’ to you, Margo! My heart goes out to her family who was so dear to her.

From working together on the switchboard at St. Francis Bank, some of my most memorable times there, through retirement and me moving away to being Facebook friends.. We may not have been physically together, but you always made it feel like we were. I shall cherish the many memories we made and hold you in my heart forever dear friend. Next time I hear thunder I will know it’s due to you making everyone in heaven laugh!

What an empty feeling, my groovy friend… Life without you in it. I sure am grateful you came into my heart – where you will always stay :heart:

Mrs. Tepley… what a sweet sweet woman you sure were. Although we’ve not known each other very long… we will truly miss you terribly. What an impact you’ve made in my son, Josiah’s life… such kind words you’ve spoken over him always encouraging and building him up. He will miss working for you and all of the lil’ adventures he’s enjoyed with you… :two_hearts:I so enjoyed hearing his stories and the pride in his voice when he’d return and share stories afterwards… God bless you and yours forever…
