Margaret was employed 24 years at the City National Bank in Mineral Wells as Assistant Vice President.

Lindbloom of Weatherford, and Jordan Lee of Dallas; great-granddaughters Meghan and Lexi; great grandson, Scott; also loving nieces and nephews; dearest friend Joy Nichols; along with many loving and loyal friends.

  • Sunburn isn't the only sign of summer that can leave you itchy and blistered

    You've got a rash. You quickly rule out the usual suspects: You haven't been gardening or hiking or even picnicking, so it's probably not a plant irritant such as poison ivy or wild parsnip; likewise, it's probably not chiggers or ticks carrying Lyme disease; and you haven't been swimming in a pond, which can harbor the parasite that causes swimmer's itch.
