April 8, 1917 — May 23, 2013
It is with sadness that the family of Margaret Lucille Beaver (Boyer) announce her passing on May 23, 2013, in Eugene, Ore., at the age of 96. Raised in Fresno, Calif., Margaret graduated from Fresno High in 1935, where she was Commissioner of Social Affairs and active in student government. She attended the University of Missouri and Fresno State, where she met her future husband, David Beaver, who predeceased her in death in 1999 after 61 years of marriage.
Margaret and Dave moved to Cameron Park in 1979 and were active members of Cameron Park County Club from 1979 to 2000. During those years, Dave was a Realtor with Coldwell Banker and Margaret was behind the scenes providing refreshments for his open houses and other events. She was a gracious hostess, avid tennis player, supportive of her children’s school and extracurricular activities and opened her home to many over the years. She was adventuresome, loved RV’ing and shopping, always had a smile and at 87 climbed Mount St. Michel’s in Cornwall.
Margaret is survived by her four children and their spouses; eight grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren. A gathering of family and friends will be held in Sacramento on June 29, at 11:30 a.m. Contact Peggy at 916-719-5550 for details. The family requests that in lieu of flowers donations in Margaret’s name be made to the Santa Rosa Academy Gymnasium Building Fund, c/o Lania Beaver Padilla, 40253 Balboa, Temecula, CA 92591, or to Sacred Heart Hospice of Eugene, Ore.
