A Celebration of Life for Margaret Adele Eastwood, 86 of Miami, Okla. will be held at 12 p.m. Monday September 4th, 2017, at Providence Road Church in Norman, Okla. Margaret took her last breath on August 21st, 2017 in the presence of family singing “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” and “All The Little Loon Loons”.
Margaret was born October 26th, 1930 in Yoakum, Texas to John Anderson and Etta Mae Bush. After graduating from high school and attending a women’s business school, Margaret met and married her soul mate Louis David Eastwood on February 16, 1951 in Plainview, Texas. In the early 1950’s they travelled the country as gospel singers/preacher, before moving to Lubbock, Texas in the late 1950’s. They later moved their family to Miami, Okla. where they owned two nursing homes, Eastwood Manor and Nursing Center of Miami. During this time, she received her license as an LPN from N.E.O. in 1968. Margaret cherished her role as the matriarch and caregiver for her family and patients. After selling the nursing homes, David and Margaret retired to their property on Monkey Island at Grand Lake, Okla. and later moved to Tulsa, Okla. to be with their daughter and grandchildren. In addition to caring for others, Margaret enjoyed traveling to see U.S. Monuments, National Parks and museums with family, attending estate sales, watching college football (especially OU and her grandson’s team Friends University), singing to her grandchildren and great grandchildren, talking with loved ones about life, and tending her beautiful gardens. She will be forever missed and remembered by her family and friends for her sweet spirit and her heart of gold.
