Margaret's Story

Text size

Margaret Salmon 97, is at rest with God in Heaven after a life well lived. She passed away Tuesday, June 6, 2017, following a brief illness. Margaret was a life-long resident of Terre Haute and graduated from Garfield High School. She married Robert Salmon on April 10, 1943. He preceded her in death in 2002.
Margaret was a loving and generous mother and grandmother who enjoyed family parties, especially holiday gatherings. Her devotion to her faith and Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church was of great importance to her.
Margaret was truly an inspiration by her dedication to aging gracefully and healthfully. She learned to swim at 75 at the local YMCA, attended water aerobics well into her 90's and walked on her treadmill daily.
Margaret is survived by her four daughters, Carol Fick of Terre Haute, Linda Kerr (Frank Kerr) of Plainfield, Barbara Salmon of West Lafayette and Janice Fetter-Salmon (Steven Fetter-Salmon) of Indianapolis. She has five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. She will be missed by all whose lives she touched.
Visitation will be at Mattox-Wood Funeral Home from 4 to 8 p.m. Sunday, June 11, 2017. A Mass of Christian burial will be at Sacred Heart Catholic Church at 10 a.m. on Monday, June 12, 2017.
