Margaret was born June 1, 1951 in Springfield to the late John E. and Dorothy Beatrice Spain Walden. She was a graduate of Greenbrier High School Class of 1969. Margaret was a member of North Springfield Baptist Church where she served many years as church organist, taught Sunday School, and was always a vital part of working and supporting the church youth group. She kept children in her home for many years and was known county wide for her cake baking. Margaret loved her family, baking, card making, drawing, and painting. She was always involved in the lives of her daughters while they were growing up. She supported them in Girl Scouts and went on many camping trips with them. Margaret loved the Lord and always wanted those she knew and loved to love the Lord also and to always depend on Him. She was diagnosed with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and wanted anyone else that had the same diagnosis to take care of themselves.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister: Hazel Walden Mayo. Margaret is survived by her husband of 52 years, Lanny Hester of Greenbrier, by her daughters and son-in-law: Lanna Hester of Jackson, Christina and Wayne Carlisle of Greenbrier, by her grandchildren: Dayton and Laney Carlisle, and Miley Hester, and by her brother-in-law: Ray Mayo of Greenbrier.
