Margaret Leslie Hickert (puckett)
Margaret lived in the Newberg area most of her life. After graduating Newberg High School, she married John Hickert. Margaret was a homemaker and also worked at US Bank, The Newberg Graphic, and Attrell's Flowers.
John and Margaret were married 55 years before his passing. After retirement, they sold their small farm and enjoyed spending summers at the Oregon coast and winters in Yuma, Arizona. Margaret attended many sewing and art classes over the years, and loved visiting with everyone! A prolific gardener, there were no bare patches of earth in her gardens. She passed her love of nature and gardening to all of her children. Margaret also enjoyed playing her piano and painting with oils and watercolors.
Margaret is survived by her four children: Marcia Leion of Bend, Steven Hickert of Hillsboro, Greg Hickert of Tigard, and Janet Hickert Schmidt of McMinnville; eight grandchildren, eleven great grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband John; granddaughter Brittany; and sister Maria Gander.
A memorial service will be held at 12:30pm on Friday, October 4, 2019, at Willamette National Cemetery in Portland, Oregon. Memorials may be made to Providence Hospice or charity of choice.
