A year later Coy returned to Oklahoma and married Margaret. They moved to Trona in 1961.

Margaret absolutely adored and loved Coy with all her heart. They were married 56 years and raised their children in Trona and Inyokern.

Margaret worked in the Finance Department at the city of Ridgecrest and retired in 2012. She loved spending time her family, sewing, crocheting, camping, horses, boating, waterskiing and sweet tea. Margaret always had the biggest most beautiful smile. She called it her NANA smile. Her smile remains with us always and forever.

May you rest in peace, Margaret, you will always be in our hearts!
