She was the second of three daughters to Arnold and Peggy Franta. She graduated from Hickman Mills High School in 1977 and continued her education at

Longview and Penn Valley Community Colleges in Kansas City, MO. She worked as a nursing assistant at St. Luke’s hospital in Kansas City before her children were born.

Margo was an adventurous person, charismatic and generous, deeply caring about the people she knew. She had fond memories of growing up in the “house on the corner”, with the sinuous

backyard hedge tree and its sheltering canopy, playtime adventures with her sisters, and joining them each fall to pick up the dropped rotted apples in their backyard and wheelbarrowing them over to the family’s large garden plot, where her favorite vegetable radishes were planted each spring.

Thank you Terry,
I remember you, from when we used to visit my Aunt Violet in the summers, and enjoy the camping fun.

I, too, remember Margo from her visits to Marion back in the 70s, and I am glad for the times we spent together - so vibrant, so fun, such a beautiful spirit. I am saddened to learn of her passing, and yet happy to know that her spirit is now unfettered by the physical to roam wherever she will, for a spirit such as hers is never truly gone, only changed. My deepest sympathies for her family and friends, with hope that the joys of her presence in your lives far outweigh the sorrow of her passing. Peace and Godspeed, my old friend - thankful our paths crossed, if even for only a short while.

I want to express my deepest sympathy on your lost. I meet Margo way back in the 60-70s when they use to come to Marion. I have thought about her ever once in awhile wondering how she was doing. When her and Karla were around we always had a good time. Rest In Peace my friend.
