Margaret Elizabeth Luckie Herring

ODESSA — Margaret, Mom to three sons and MawMaw to three grandchildren, has triumphed over pain and sorrow. Freed from the burden of a harrowing struggle, she has flown with the joy of the just and good into the waiting arms of her husband, Omar; and her parents; brother; and sister. They have long awaited her arrival and now, at long last, may once again savor her apricot fried pies.
A lifelong Methodist, Margaret attended her church faithfully until recent years when illnesses combined to preclude her doing so. Her bible studies, with her years of schoolteaching at various levels, enabled her to live under, and to teach by example, the tenet she unfailingly lived by, as expressed in St. Luke, Chapter 6, Verse 38: “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give unto your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”
Margaret’s sons wish to thank everyone who has stopped by with gifts and best wishes, both during her struggle and following her departure. All your kindness touches us deeply.
To the competent and caring staff of Seabury Center and Odyssey Healthcare we extend our gratitude for your attention to our Mom during her last months.
Your professionalism and ministrations made our Mom’s journey, and our transition, bearable.
Margaret is survived by her three sons, Mack Herring , Jack Herring and David Herring, all of Odessa.
Graveside services will be at 10 a.m. Monday at Sunset Memorial Gardens with the Rev. Terry Tamplin officiating.
