Mar­garet (Peggy) Goldsmith was born June 2, 1921 in Tren­ton, MO, to Harve Sullins and Anna Hall Sullins. She died peace­fully, with her fam­ily at her side, on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 6, 2017, in Sugar Land, TX, at the age of 96.

Mar­garet at­tended Chilli­cothee Busi­ness Col­lege in Mis­souri. Af­ter col­lege she worked in Tulsa, OK for the Texas Pipe­line Com­pany (later Tex­aco). There she met Richard Goldsmith, whom she mar­ried in 1943. They were mar­ried 61 years be­fore his death in 2004. Richard was over­seas dur­ing WWII and when he re­turned, he went back to Tex­aco and Mar­garet took up her life’s work of nur­tur­ing a fam­ily. Tex­aco moved them from Tulsa to Hous­ton in 1961. They were ac­tive mem­bers of Bel­laire Chris­tian Church, and Mar­garet later be­came a mem­ber of Bethany Chris­tian Church when the two churches com­bined mem­ber­ship.

Mar­garet loved her fam­ily and sought out any oc­ca­sion to have ev­ery­one to­gether. She is sur­vived by three daugh­ters: Mar­sha Schilling (Ralph), Suzanne Ganzer (John), and Sharon Bow­man, four grand­chil­dren: Heather Fin­ney (Roy), Todd Bow­man (Amy), Brent Ganzer (Misty), and Ryan Ganzer (Tasha), as well as 6 great grand­chil­dren. She is also sur­vived by a brother, Robert Sullins (Mar­garet) of Casey, Iowa, and eight nieces.
