She loved to attend church and was a member of the Tulsa United Indian Methodist Church. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, who went the extra mile for the family she loved. The Lord called Margaret home on Thursday, May 30, 2013, in Tulsa, with her loved ones gathered at her side. Margaret was 94 years old. She will be greatly missed.

She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband; sons, Don Morrison, Richard Morrison and Kenneth Morrison; daughter, Carolyn Morrison-Edfast; sisters, Nancy, Martha, Elizabeth and Galela; and brothers, William and Charles.
