Margaret G. Norman, age 74, of Ottawa, IL, passed away Tuesday, March 17, 2020 at OSF St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Ottawa, IL. She was born October 31, 1945 in Hinsdale, IL. She was the 6th child born to Charles P. Svinning and Iretta Pearl (Lloyd) Svinning.
In the early 1990’s Margaret was baptized as one of Jehovah Witnesses. Since that time, she was determined to tell others about the Bible’s hope for the future.
Margaret was employed as a registered CNA until her retirement. When she was younger, she worked alongside her mother as a talented seamstress making beautiful quilts for many beloved members of her family.
She is survived by her only child, Deborah Nunnally Norman of Sandwich, IL; as well as several nieces and nephews and many dear friends in the Chicagoland area.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Iretta Svinning; and her siblings, Dora Lee Buzz, Emma Winkler, Virginia S. Planz, Charles, Roger, and Michael Svinning.
A memorial service for Margaret will be held at a later date at the Jehovah Witness Kingdom Hall in Sandwich, IL.
