Born in Lincoln, England May 6, 1931, Margaret was the daughter of George and Minnie Grantham. Many World War II stories have been told by Margaret about her experiences during a time of rationing, the frequent sounds of bombs nearby her family’s home, and that she even became quite a marksman at an early age. She worked hard during her teenage years as a courier between facilities for the Ministry of Defense. Margaret was present for the “Thousand Plane Raid” during the end of the war. She met her husband to be, Kenneth Logue, over a cup of coffee while he was stationed in England.
Upon Kenneth’s honorable discharge from the Air Force, the couple returned to the United States and married on May 28, 1950 in Star City, Arkansas. Once married, they moved to Tulsa, where Kenneth started school at the Spartan School of Aeronautics, and upon graduation, he began a 36-year career with American Airlines. Margaret spent most of her adult life caring for her husband and children however, she was briefly employed as a healthcare aide for the Oklahoma Osteopathic Hospital.
Margaret loved knitting, learning the skill when she was only 5 years old. She made the prettiest cable- knit sweaters for her family. Margaret loved to cook, especially pizza made from scratch with her very own orange dough. At Christmas time, she would spend all night wrapping presents and baking Christmas bread for beloved family.
Those surviving family members, who will carry on her legacy, include her children: Linda Lawrence and husband, Jerry; Richard and wife, Angelia; David and wife, Ruth; Kevin and wife, Kay; 10 grandkids and 16 great-grandkids.
