Margery Lee Hayward was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She passed away on February 23rd, 2021 at the age of 77. A Celebration of Life ceremony will be held on June 04, 2021 at 10:00am at the First United Methodist Church in Conroe, Texas.

Margery Hayward, daughter of Lincoln & Margaret Pettibone, was born April 6th, 1943 in Chicago. She attended Mundelein College and received her bachelor's in Business Administration. Margery married the love of her life, Steve Hayward, on June 6th, 1964.

Margery was a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother. Margery was a true partner to her husband and was always there to lend a hand to her children. She was very nurturing and raised her children to be like her, strong, independent, and passionate.   Ready to retire when her first granddaughter was born, she was always available to help and enjoyed spending time with all her grandchildren; Jackie, Megan, Daniel, Emma, Steve, Mackenzie, Caleb and Theo.

Being a travel enthusiast Margery was able to travel extensively visiting, Russia, Italy, Spain, Caribbean, Mexico, Africa, Turkey, Switzerland, Australia, Singapore, Brunei, and many states in the United States.

Margery was an avid philanthropist. Before retirement, she juggled a full-time career in banking with being a great wife and mother and was very successful at both. After Marge retired, she spent a great deal of time giving back to her community through various organizations including the Young Texas Artist and the Assistance League of Montgomery County. The Assistance League of Montgomery County was most dear to her heart. She participated in many of their events, Operation School Bell (Clothing underprivileged children), Literacy programs (reading to students in their schools) and held many leadership positions within the Assistance League including: President, Operation School Bell Chair as well as serving on the National Director of Finance. We used to tease her that she had a full-time job again!

Margery will be missed by all who knew her. She is survived by her loving husband Steve, children: Traci (Chris), David (Heather), Steve (Tanya); Helen Ang, and 8 grandchildren: Jacqueline, Megan, Daniel, Emma, Steve, Mackenzie, Caleb and Theo.
