Obituary

Margaret Ann Clark Ostrum died Saturday, November 25th after a brief illness. She was born in Portland, Maine in 1925 to Paul and Ruby Clark seven minutes after her twin sister Martha.

She worked for the Press Corps in Europe after World War II then came to San Antonio as a reporter for the San Antonio Light where she met the love of her life, Bob Ostrum, and they married in 1953.

Margaret was a devoted wife and mother, loving grandmother, and friend to many. Until her last week she was "still on her feet", having a daily Scotch at happy hour with her beloved Bob, recalling special times with family and reciting poetry.

She is remembered with loving hearts by her husband of 64 years, Bob; her children Karen (Larry); Robert (Lorraine); Anne (Barrett) and Catherine (Michael); grandchildren Alicia (Russ), Sarah (Jasper), Andrew (Brittany), Camille (Andrew), Meredith, Ashton and Mitchell; and many nieces and nephews.

A funeral service will be held Saturday, December 2nd, 2:00 pm in the chapel at Porter Loring on McCullough.
