A Time to Begin
Margaret was born on April 4, 1920 in Bay City, Texas to Lewis and Rosie Lee Green. Margaret was the 5th child of 9 kids. Margaret was proceeded by her nine siblings; Eunice Davis, James Green, marie Hanks, Vernice Green, Catherine Rubin, Robert Green, Jewel Knotts and Jimmy Green
A Time to Serve
Margaret married Ikles James Roberts and they became parents to Earnestine Roberts, Ikles James Roberts Jr, Lottie Mae Roberts and Robert Ray Roberts.
Margaret was a very committed wife, mother and grandmother. Margaret moved to Hitchcock Texas where married Mack Ward and worked 26 years before retiring in 1985 from Hitchcock Independent School District in 1985 where she left to assist with the care of her great grandson.
Margaret always loved the Lord and begin her Christian journey at a very young age. She was an avid church goer. She maintained long term memberships with St. Mark Missionary Baptist Church in Hitchcock Texas until after the death of her son Ikles in 1991 where she soon after moved to California to be with her daughter’s. There she became a member of Mount Gilead Missionary Baptist Church.
Margaret will long be remembered for her devotion to God, family and friends.
A Time to End
After losing her oldest daughter in 2009 and then her youngest in 2015, Margaret relocated back to Texas where she continued to touch the
lives of others with her jovial demeanor and Christian spirit. Margaret lived a very glorified life and she fulfilled her duties here on earth by committing her life to serving others.
Margaret’s earthly was completed successfully. Because she went above and beyond her call of duty, she received the call she had been awaiting and an offer she you couldn’t refuse. This job comes with a huge sign-on bonus, job security and a reunion with family and friends she hasn’t seen or heard from in a long time. This new job takes her to a wonderful resting place where she will soon jump back into daily prayer, socializing, gardening, sewing and reading to her heart’s content. She asks that we all follow the path of righteousness so that we can all look forward to being reunited like ole times.
Rest in peace our beloved Margaret Esther Ward.
