Margaret Gartman retired from Allied Chemical after 38 years of service. She was a longtime member of Congaree Baptist Church where she was very active before her illness. She enjoyed bowling, fishing, watching sports, and playing bingo. She loved working in her yard and sitting on her porch watching the birds. Margaret was a caring and loving person. When she loved you, you knew you were loved. She never met a stranger and was a joy to all that knew her. Mrs. Margaret will be deeply missed by all her friends and family and her dog Joey. Margaret’s family would like to give special thanks to the team at Jenni-Lynn Assisted Living for their outstanding care.

A memorial service will be held for Margaret Gartman at Congaree Baptist Church, 101 Pine Ridge Dr. West Columbia, SC, on Saturday August 13th, 2022 at 1pm. The family will receive friends at the church following the service.
