In Loving Memory of Mrs. Margaret Mabel Buehler-Ashford, born on Feb. 19, 1920 and left us on June 4, 2012.

A resident of Washington, for four years, she lived with her oldest son and his wife, Basil and Lori Buehler. Margaret was a widow at the time of her passing. She was a loving mother to three sons, Basil, Donald, who preceded her in death, and Robert. She was a beloved grandmother to Michael Buehler, Katherine Storm, Danielle Webb, Lisa and Laurie Buehler and Ayn Marie Buehler. She had 17 great-grandchildren and left this world loved by all.

Margaret was born in Youngstown, Ohio, and lived in Maryland, California and New Mexico before coming to North Carolina. Margaret was a lady of many talents ranging from jewelry-design and -making in the 1950s to interior design in the 1970s. She was a loving wife and mother who will be missed by her family and friends.

Margaret will be returned to Oberlin, Ohio, for services and prayers at Christ Episcopal Church officiated by her cousin, Rev. Dr. Brian K. Wilbert.

We know she was welcomed in heaven by our Lord Jesus and joined with her family there waiting with open arms.
