      Margaret Ann Crawford, age 82, died on Friday, February 23, 2018. From her birth in Forrest, New Mexico, on August 29, 1935, to her death, she nourished people around her with love, faith, and support. She was raised on a farm near Forrest, New Mexico and was the youngest of five children.

After four years, Carl and Margaret returned to Tucumcari to farm and ranch. They established their family home in 1974 at the place Margaret was born. In 1978, they set up a second home in Amarillo, Texas. Margaret went to work at a department store to help support the children with college. From 1988 to 1995, both Margaret and Carl were employed by Amarillo State Center to manage group homes for mentally challenged adults.
