Margaret Brainard Obituary

Margaret E. Brainard, age 84, passed away January 19, 2024, in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.  She was born January 29, 1939, in Barberton, Ohio to Harold and Margaret (Abel) Wilson.

Margaret was a bookkeeper and worked for various doctors’ offices, churches and retired from a dental office in Sandusky Ohio. She was an organizer of Campus Crusade in Angola, Indiana where she worked to form an inclusive group with various types of student groups.

She enjoyed sewing/tailoring her family’s clothes, gardening, and farming. Her farm in Hamilton, Indiana was a source of learning and pride. Her farm in Nova, Ohio was a leisurely endeavor where she was able to enjoy nature. Margaret loved music from singing with the family, church worship and dancing while she did chores. She made birthday cakes, Christmas treats and even learned to make many products from scratch when she lived in South America. She could be counted on to listen and be a source of strength to friends, family, and strangers alike.

Margaret is survived by her husband, Gary Brainard; sons, Doug Brainard and Mike Brainard; daughter, Christine Davis; sisters, Dorris Sturm, Anna Lee Bodi and Martha Wayner; grandchildren, Lily Brainard, Wilson Brainard, Anne Stormer (Joe), Luke Davis, Josh Davis (Missy), Max Davis, and Katy Capron (Sean); Great-grandchildren; Kaley Sticka (Tavis), Tyler Capron, Myra Stormer, Sabrina Davis, Alexis Davis and Alivia Davis.

She was preceded in death by her parents, brother, Bill Wilson, and brothers in law, Jack Brainard, Max Brainard, Bill Wayner, Jim Bodi and Dick Sturm.
