Margarette  Guthrie (Erwin)
Margarette Erwin Guthrie 98, of Waco, went to be with her Heavenly Father, Wednesday, June 6, 2018. Services will be 10 am, Monday, June 11, 2018, at First Baptist Church Robinson, 104 E Stegall Dr., with Pastor Micheal Moore officiating. Burial to follow at Waco Memorial Park. The family will receive visitors Sunday, from 2 to 4 pm at Pecan Grove Funeral Home, 3124 Robinson Dr.
Margarette was born to Luther and Bessie Erwin on June 22, 1919. She grew up on a farm with her sister and three brothers. She worked as a seamstress and supervisor at J.M. Woods and later Gensco. She finished her career at Big J’s. She married James Odis Guthrie on November 7, 1935. She once said, “I knew I loved him when I could look and see that white shirt walking down that sandy road.” They had four children together. A great love of Margarette’s was her children and grandchildren. They were all perfect in her eyes.
Her service to the Lord was prominent in her life. She was a long-time member of First Baptist Church of Robinson. She loved helping in the kitchen at church for Golden Age, funerals, and Vacation Bible School. She faithfully attended her Sunday school and church.
Margarette loved to cook, quilt, and sew. The whole family loved her “Mammaw and spring meringue” cookies, and we all have quilts that she made by hand.
She will be missed greatly and will be in our hearts forever. Her spirit and tenacity will live on through her family.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Luther and Bessie Erwin; husband, James O. Guthrie; son, Bobby Guthrie; daughter, Linda Dodwell; 3 brothers and 1 sister.
She is survived by her daughters, Kay Eddelman and husband, Roy and May Russell and husband, Phil; grandchildren, Kim Perry and husband, Tom, Dawn Hofer and husband, Jimmy, Scooter Dodwell and wife, Jodi, David Guthrie and wife, Tammy, Danny Guthrie, Mike Guthrie and wife, Lacey, Brice Russell and wife, Jacqui and Lauren Gordon and husband, Trevor; 18 great-grandchildren and 2 great-great-grandchildren; daughter-in-law, Linda Guthrie.
The family wishes to thank the staff at Ridgecrest and Providence Hospice for the excellent and loving care of Margarette during this difficult time.
