Margaret is preceded in death by her beloved father, James Roger Douglas, her dear mother, Elizabeth Jane Railsback Douglas, and her loving husband, Gary Wayne LaGard. Although she will be deeply missed, Margaret leaves behind a legacy of love and kindness.

She is survived by her two sons, Albert LaGard and James LaGard, who were a constant source of pride and joy for her. Margaret’s sisters, Sandra Sutton and Barbara Sooby, shared a special bond with her, rooted in a lifetime of shared memories and experiences. Margaret’s memory will also be cherished by her beloved grandchildren, Kaeleigh, Ryan, Melody, Garet, Noah and Joshua, as well as her great-grandchild, TJ.
