Margaret A. Bryant died Feb. 3, 2017.

She was born Feb. 22, 1923, in Buckley, Wash., to the late John and Mary Sandor, whose family of five sons and three daughters lived on a small farm east of Buckley. She was a 1942 graduate of Buckley High School and worked for The Boeing Company in the Expediting Group in support of the World War II effort. In 2010, she was recognized by Boeing leadership for her service during this time. She later attended and graduated from the Moler Beauty and Barber School in Tacoma, then became co-owner of the Bobbette Beauty Salon in Enumclaw.

In 1954, she married James Bryant in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. The family lived in Tacoma and for a short time in the South Hill area of Puyallup. She was a devoted wife, mother and homemaker who volunteered as a beautician in several nursing homes, and was an active member in McKinley Park Christian Church in Tacoma and Puyallup Presbyterian Church. She loved family gatherings, walking, dancing, baking chocolate chip cookies and helping prepare and provide cooking advice during holiday meals.

After her husband’s death in 1994, she moved into the Argus Manor Apartments in Puyallup. She enjoyed spending time with neighbors at the complex, and loved taking people to church while she was still able to drive.

She is survived by son Mark J. Bryant of Seattle and brother John Sandor of Juneau, Alaska. She was preceded in death by older brothers Charles, William, Henry and Frank, and sisters Helen Carden and Pat Hoyle.

There was a visitation on Friday, Feb. 10, and a funeral service on Saturday, Feb. 11, at Weeks’ Funeral Home in Buckley. Directly following the service a reception celebrating her life took place at the Multi-Purpose Center, 811 Main St. in Buckley.

Memorials may be made to the Tacoma Rescue Mission, 425 S. Tacoma Way, Tacoma, Wash. 98402.
