Is it possible that someone could check for an obituary for Margaret J. Owens who died in Burlington on 9 June 2005? I would really appreciate it. The Margaret I am seeking would have had 4 children, although I am unsure whether or not some may have predeceased her.

Hi,

There isn't an obituary volunteer in Skagit Valley at this time.

You can contact the Washington Library, sos.wa.gov/library/obituaries.aspx for a free copy. However, it takes about six weeks.

You can contact the Skagit Valley Genealogical Society, rootsweb.ancestry.com/~wasvgs/ who will copy obituaries for a fee. Successful Searching!

When you post, provide more information about the actual person you seek. It "appears" you are looking for Margaret Gustafson, married to William Albert Owens, remarried to Schulz, died in 1998 in Nevada. Your family tree data appears you have found the correct person.

The Margaret J Owens in Burlington that died in 2005 did not have children.

The Social Security Death Index:
Margaret J. Owens, born 15 Sep 1916, died 9 June 2005. "Last Residence:" Burlington, Skagit County, WA.

Margaret is buried in the Green Hills Memorial Cemetery, Burlington. Her marker identifies her as "Beloved Wife, Sister and Aunt" but not as being "Mother."

The Skagit County Recorder has one recorded document in this persons name: A Quit Claim Deed, recorded April 8, 1999, wherein Margaret J. Owens, Surviving Trustor/Trustee, quit claimed property from the William O. Owens Trust dated January 20, 1998. Tax Parcel #340307-0-058-0018 and 34040700-058-0208. After recording the document was to be returned to Owens at 686 McCorquedale Road, Burlington, WA.

Your Allan/Sigler/et.al. family tree shows a William Albert Owens that had married a Margaret Jean Gustafson and had a son "Danne." If this is the Margaret you seek, this person above appears to be the wrong one. Your tree shows William born/died in Tacoma, WA. It also shows Margaret born in Tacoma, died in Las Vegas, NV in 1998. So it appears you have found your correct person.

Her obituary from the Tacoma Tribune:
Margaret Jean Schulz 2/14/20 - 8/9/98
Margaret Jean Schulz, 78, died August 9, 1998 in a Las Vegas hospital after a brief illness. Jean was a retired City of Tacoma employee and had lived all of her life in Tacoma until moving to southern Nevada in 1996 to be near her children. She is survived by a brother, Dick Gustafson (Sharon), and sister, Carol Smalling (Lynn), of Tacoma. Her loving children, Maureen Moser (Ross), Sharon Sheppard (Ellis) and Pat O'Malley (Sheila) of southern Nevada, will miss her deeply, as will her many friends and family, including 6 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. A memorial is planned in Tacoma in October. The family suggests donations to the American Diabetes Association in Jean's memory. Arrangements by Neptune Society of Nye County, NV. (702) 727-1888.
