Margaret Marie Ondra Adams died January 21, 2011 at Village Creek Nursing Home in Fort Worth.
Margaret Marie Ondra was born on August 24, 1921 to Adolph Ondra and Rose Prachyl Ondra in Weatherford, Texas.
She graduated from Aledo High School and went on to attend Texas Women's College, later Texas Wesleyan University, where she earned her teaching degree. Following college, Margaret moved to Priddy, Texas, where she taught school for several years until she met Lynn Waldo Adams, whom she married on April 21, 1946 in Breckenridge, Texas. The newly married couple made their home in Eastland and later settled in Breckenridge, Texas. A dedicated homemaker for her family, Margaret also served as a substitute teacher in the Breckenridge schools. Very active in the lives of her two daughters, Margaret served in their Girls Scout Troops and many of their school activities. The family loved to spend time together, enjoying small-town life, whether it be boating, fishing or visiting with friends. A devoted Catholic, Margaret attended Mass regularly and was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Breckenridge, Texas. Following the death of her husband on May 23, 1981, Margaret moved to Aledo in 1984 and later to Fort Worth in 1997. While living in Aledo, Margaret was a member of Saint Stevens Catholic Church in Weatherford, Texas. She also built a new home, made many new friends and renewed friendships from previous years in Aledo. She also traveled as much as she could, including several cruises, bus trips and family trips, including a six-week visit with friends in Hawaii.
Margaret was preceded in death by her parents; husband; and four sisters, Rosalie Reynold, Janie Wyatt, Eloise Barber and Alyne Wingo.
Margaret is survived by two daughters, Lynda Davis and husband, Jeff and Susan Adams and husband, William Hogue, all of Arlington; one sister, Josephine King and husband, Richard of Aledo and one brother, Gus Ondra and wife, Margie of Cypress.
