Margaret Louise Woycheshin, nicknamed Pug, was born in Houston, Texas August 15, 1937 and went home to be with our Lord, Friday, October 30, 2020 at age 83.

Margaret graduated from Madisonville High School in 1955 as Salutatorian. She was active in several activities such as a trombone player in the band, twirler, and she was Basketball Sweetheart. Later in life Margaret took twelve hours of college credits in Spanish and six hours of computer courses which brought her great joy.

Margaret married the love of her life, Michael Anthony Woycheshin, September 17, 1977. They were married for almost forty five years, they lived in Houston, TX for 20 years. In Houston, they attended Park Place Baptist Church, and Calvary Baptist Church. They were Sunday school teachers, VBS teachers, youth chaperones on every trip their children ever attended. On February 26, 1996 they retired to Madisonville, Tx to build their dream home. They joined Faith Baptist Church where they continued to actively serve. They have been host to multiple missionaries and pastors. Their home has always been open to anyone in need. Margaret led many people to the Lord over the years and many lives were changed by her bold testimony. Also since their retirement Margaret and Mike have enjoyed traveling, gardening and spending time with their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Margaret worked for thirteen years at First National Bank of Madisonville. She also worked for Dr. Heaton 10 years and did bookkeeping for PM Standley for four years. Often times she worked two to three jobs to take care of her three children.
