Margaret Bozarth

December 7, 1943 — October 6, 2021


Waynesville, Margaret Ann Gibson Bozarth, age 77, passed away on October 6, 2021 at Mission Hospital.

A native of Haywood County, Margaret was one of eight children born to the late Jethro Gibson and Helen Goodson Gibson.  She was also preceded in death by her two brothers, James and Jerry Gibson and two sisters, Betty Gibson and Annie Sue Lillard.

For 33 years Margaret proudly worked for the State of North Carolina as a courtroom clerk and enjoyed being part of the judicial process.  Some of Margaret’s favorite activities were hunting for treasures at a yard sale, decorating her home, gardening, and eating at Chinese buffets.  There was never a more loving and giving mother and grandmother than Margaret.  This fun-loving lady had a heart of gold and never gave up on anyone.

Margaret is survived by her loving husband of 38 years, Glen Bozarth; her daughter, Tabatha Rogers (Michael) of Michigan; two sons, William Welch (Mitchell Schlumbrecht) of Weaverville and Keith Bradshaw (Kathy) of Monroe; and her three sisters, Jackie Warren (Claude Jr.), Charlotte Baldwin (Ray), and Emma Jo Gibson.  Also left to treasure their Grandma’s memory are five grandchildren, Elizabeth Fleming, Jeffrey Rogers, Liam Welch, Ta’Marion Schlumbrecht, and Taylor Bradshaw; and one great-grandchild, Solveig Fleming.
