Margaret E Austin

Margaret E Austin, 92, of Seadrift, passed away Monday, June 17, 2019. She was born Feb.18, 1927 in Mound, Illinois to the late Roland Campbell and Grace Isenberger Campbell.

Margaret was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother whose family was blessed with her unconditional love and support. She loved traveling to her hometown of Llano to visit with her family. She, her sisters and mother were notorious for being able to carry on five separate conversations at the same time and they all knew the full content of each of those five conversations.

She had a passion for painting seascapes, sewing, creating and building things, flower gardening, a love for her dogs and worked hard to achieve her education after her children were born. When asked, Margaret was quick to say her greatest achievement of all were her children.

She is survived by her daughter Susan Taylor (Ronald), of Seadrift, sons, Mike Austin (Adrienne), of Katy, David Austin (Kathy), of Port Lavaca, and Robert Austin (Leslie), of Victoria; sister Shirley Amthor, of San Angelo; brother, Edward Campbell, of San Saba; 12 grandchildren, five great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, Margaret was preceded in death by her husband, Chuck Austin; sisters, Evelyn Harned and Dorothy Murchison; and brothers, Roland Campbell Jr. and Larry Campbell.

Visitation was held from 6-8 p.m. Friday, June 21, at Waldrope-Hatfield-Hawthorne Funeral Chapel in Llano. A celebration of her life will be at a chapel service at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 22, at Waldrope-Hatfield-Hawthorne Funeral Chapel. Interment followed at the family plot in the Llano City Cemetery.
