Margaret Blissard

Margaret Blissard, 85, of Granbury, passed peacefully June 7, 2013. S

She is survived by her only son Richard, three grandchildren – Jeremy, Amy and Lisa and three great-grandchildren – Aubrielle, Aiden and Saxton. Margaret was actually a leap year baby, but celebrated her birthday on February 28 so she didn’t have to wait till every fourth year came around to celebrate a birthday (She was actually only 21 years old.)

She was an amazing mother, full of wisdom, encouragement and an unceasing passion to always excel and believe for the best. Her repetitive words over the years was, “You can do and achieve whatever you want in life.”

She had an Annie Oakley/Calamity Jane kind of personality that never backed down from saying whatever needed to be said in the moment. She firmly believed in being married once in a lifetime and felt character in a person was the strongest asset a person could have and to never jeopardize it for any reason. She will be missed.

A memorial service is scheduled Saturday, June 15 at 2 p.m. at the Wiley Funeral Home, 400 HWY 377 East. Arrangements were by Wiley Funeral Home.
