It is with deep sympathy we announce the passing of Mrs. Margaret McConnell of Gadsden, AL, who transitioned on Monday, November 22, 2021, at the age of 83. We ask that you keep her family and friends in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
Mrs. Margaret G. McConnell was born on February 24, 1938 in DeKalb County, Alabama to the late Alex Gregory and Irene Moore. She confessed Christ at an early age and was a faithful member of Pleasant Grove Baptist Church where she was one of the oldest members. During her tenure, she was a member of the usher board, the kitchen committee, the Missionary Society, and a committed trustee. She was a devoted CNA at the Collinsville Nursing Home for over 45 years from which she retired in May 2020. Given her love for healthcare, Margaret returned to work 3 days later.
Margaret really enjoyed helping others, doing crossword puzzles, and spending time with family and friends. Her favorite past time was watching The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. Despite her small stature, she had a heart that transcended heaven and touched many.
She departed her life on Monday, November 22, 2021 at Gadsden Regional Medical Center.
