Margaret Hull

Margaret Jeanette Troxell Hull, daughter of Earl and Marie (Eckerman) Troxell, was born in Ellston, Iowa on June 27, 1929 and departed this life on November 22, 2019 at the Mount Ayr Health Care Center. She was welcomed home by an older brother, Richard Lyle Troxell. Margaret grew up on a farm near Ellston and later moved to the Tingley area. Her schooling was at Ellston, Bridge Academy Country School and then Tingley Public School.

Margaret worked her whole life as a caregiver at Sunny Slope Nursing Home, Methodist Hospital in Des Moines, and the Mount Ayr Health Care Center. She also cared for many family and close friends. In later years, she worked at the Tingley Café, opening early to make the coffee and get breakfast ready.

Margaret enjoyed being outside and working in the gladiola and vegetable garden. She also loved animals and she had many pets. In her spare time, Margaret enjoyed putting together jigsaw puzzles and she loved crocheting, as she made countless afghans for family and friends.

Margaret married William (Bill) Bryan and to this union 3 children were born: Katherine (Kathy) Jane Jackson, Robert (Bob) James (Linda) Bryan, and Ruth Marie (Mark) Schlapia. Later she married Bernard Hull and to this union one son was born: Eugene Earl (Jennifer) Hull.

Preceding her in death were her parents; husband Bernard; beloved brother Lyle; sister-in-law Carol Troxell; and daughter Kathy Jackson.

Left to cherish her memory are her children; 9 grandchildren Janis Harris, Nicole Jackson, Renell (Wayne) Roybal, Amy Roybal, Chad (Brittany) Schlapia, Jason (Jessica) Schlapia, Bobbi (Justin) Leavitt, Adriane Hull, and Nathan Hull; 15 great grandchildren; 3 nephews Rick (Geneva) Troxell, Ron Troxell, Jim (Beth) Troxell; several cousins and many friends.

We are sorry to learn of Margaret's death. I worked with her. She was a very good worker. Margaret would bring beautiful bouquets of gladiolas that she and her mother raised. We look forward to seeing Margaret in the resurrection, when even the desert will blossom as the rose. Isaiah 35:1

We were sorry to learn of Margaret's passing. She was such a fun-loving person. Anytime she would see
Raymond she would greet him with 'hello cousin' and give him a pat on the back or a hug. She would ask
about what was going on in Branson as she enjoyed going there and wanted to know about all the changes.
Margaret was a friend to everyone and totally enjoyed serving others when she was working in the cafe. She
will be missed. We extend sympathy to her family.
