Margaret Evelyn Nash

January 16, 2015 - January 19, 2015


“Number please?” Anyone who remembers when you actually had to have another person help make a phone call may have heard this woman’s voice. Margaret retired from PNW Bell in 1981, after 30 years, when they moved all operations from Bellingham to Seattle. Born in Bellingham, June 16, 1926, to Roe and Hazel Nash, Margaret remained here her entire life. She graduated from Mt Baker High School in 1944. She died January 19, 2015.
Margaret was kind, quiet, independent and a great listener. She enjoyed gardening, baking, and simply being outdoors. Anyone who ever tasted one of her apple pies knew they had tasted one of the best. Margaret enjoyed 33 years of retirement and excellent health until Sept. 2014 when she suffered a stroke while making brownies. She never complained and she never gave up.
Margaret adored her brothers. Their children were her children, she beamed with delight anytime she talked about them.
She was predeceased by her parents, brothers Robert, (Hazel) Maurice, Lowell, (Birdean) and infant sister Mildred. She is survived by her long time friend and constant companion, Mary Jane Moen. 4 nieces, 6 nephews and numerous great and great great nieces and nephews. At her request no public services will be held. Her final resting place is Greenacres Memorial Park.

    To all my cousins: I’m so sorry for our loss, Gib loved us all and was so pleased when we all got together.I’m the one who tagged her “Gib” when I was little, probably because I couldn’t say Margaret.
    Gib loved fun socks, she had several pair covering all seasons, colors and holidays, thus the comments below about socks. She became famous at the care center for her “fun socks” and her bright blue Seahawk toe nails.
    Gib was my “go to” person, she was my “Black Friday” shopping partner, she helped me through the hard times in my life and celebrated the good times with me. I will miss her.
    On this tribute page please leave a fun story about her if you have one.

  2. I worked at PNB for about 15 yrs and knew Margaret and Mary Jane. Margaret was a kind funny lady. I enjoyed working with both of them. I am sorry for your loss. She will be missed.

    Aunt Margaret knitted my dad (Maurice) about 8 pairs of socks around 1970 or so. When he died in 1975, I inherited those socks. Even just out of high school, I thought they were pretty neat with designs of sports and game themes on the ankles. Well, fast forward 40 years and I still have a number of pairs that I wear regularly. Like Margaret, her socks seem to be indestructible. I mentioned this to her about three years ago and in her self-deprecating way she smiled and said that was very nice to hear and she told me all about knitting them for my dad. I will miss you.

  4. Fare thee well sweet Gib, til we meet again. I love you Gib and will miss you. It is wonderful to think of you with all those you love and that you are in the arms of your loving Heavenly Father.

  5. Thinking of Auntie Gib when I put my socks on this morning.
