Margaret Ooton

Birth: January 12th, 1940
Death: September 27th, 2010
Age: 70 years
Residence:Weatherby Lake
Survived By: Survivors include: three daughters, Diane Ooton (Terry Smith) of Jefferson City, MO., Joanne Gratton (Matthew) of Shawnee Mission, KS., and Suzanne Ross (Robert) of Camden, MO., and one son, Scott Ooton (Diane) of Weatherby Lake, MO.; a sister, Anne Maliszewski (Leonard) of Western Springs, IL.; nine grandchildren, Tara, Steven, Bobby, Tess, Sean, Michael, Travis, Eric, and Curt; and five great-grandchildren, Brandon, Becca, and Layton, and Ben and Kaitlyn. She was preceded in death by her husband, John, her parents, Antony and Antonia, and two siblings, William and Milan.
Affiliations: An avid traveler, Marge took every opportunity to explore Europe, sometimes even being kind and crazy enough to take young grandchildren along. She introduced us to Michelangelo and Da Vinci abroad, and locally shared season tickets to the opera and repertory theater. She was an excellent cook despite her over-love of salt, and had great taste in shoes. The day she finally left us was the feast of St. Vincent de Paul, a fitting day for someone who dedicated so much of her time to helping others through the St. Vincent de Paul Society at St. Therese Parish in Parkville, MO. Marge was also active with her many friends in the Mary, Martha, and Lazarus Prayer Group, Perpetual Adoration, the Altar and Rosary Society, Diocesan Council of Catholic Women, Minister to the Sick and Homebound, the Royal Ramblers RV Club, and the USS Portland Reunion Association.

Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 7:00 p.m. Thursday, September 30, 2010 at St. Therese Catholic Church, 7207 Northwest 9 Highway, Kansas City, MO. 64152 with Rev. Michael Roach as celebrant. The family will receive friends beginning at 5:00 p.m. at the church where the rosary will be prayed at 6:30 p.m. A committal service will be held at 11:00 a.m. Friday, October 1st, at Leavenworth National Cemetery. Memorial contributions are suggested to St. Vincent de Paul Society at St. Therese and may be left in care of the Meyers Northland Chapel, 401 Main St. Parkville, MO 64152.
