Obituary for Margaret M. Hess (Good)

Margaret M.  Hess (Good)
Margaret M. Hess passed away peacefully on March 16, 2021. She was 85. Margaret was born in Philadelphia to Margaret nee Maloney and Clement Good. She is survived by her loving children, Gregory (Mary Cay), Timothy (Linda), Elizabeth Williams, Thomas (Lisa), Michael (Sheila), Christopher (Danielle) and Gerald (Robin); 12 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.

Margaret Hess, (aka: Meg) of Warminster, PA, grew up in Northeast Philadelphia and graduated from St. Martin's Grade School and Little Flower High School.
Margaret then pursued a career in nursing by attending and graduating from the Abington Hospital School of Nursing. Her passion as a registered nurse led her down several career paths that included working at Abington Hospital in the Neo Natal Care Unit, working at Byberry Psychiatric Hospital, to then working as a nurse in private practice primary care physicians offices.

Margaret was married and raised a large family of children where she was often called on to apply her nursing skills. These skills came into play frequently, not only for her own children, but to the many neighborhood kids whose parents would rush their sick or injured child to her doorstep to help.

She took time later in her life to work in personal private care and hospice for families with loved ones at end of life. She never stopped being a nurse and caregiver. It was who she was.
Margaret loved being a Grandmother, and even more a Great Grandmother. She enjoyed family gatherings and going out for lunch and dinner and Sunday breakfast after Church.
Although, anyone who knew Margaret kenw she loved to cook and bake. She perfected her recipes over the years feeding her large family. She spent several years as well employed as the cook for the priests at Archbishop Wood High School Rectory as well as the Rectory and Convent at Nativity of Our Lord Parish in Warminster, PA.

Margaret had many talents that suited her meticulous nature. That included arts and crafts, drawing, and decorating where her creativity shined. She loved decorating for holidays and would make personalized items herself for family events.

Margaret had many interests. She was an avid reader, was a die hard Phillies fan and watched every game in 2008 when they won their last World Series. She spent much of her free time volunteering including work with the American Red Cross where she was recognized for her service.

She enjoyed listening to music and her recent favorite MIchael Buble where she attended many of his concerts. Margaret enjoyed her home, but her favorite destination was always a trip to Ocean City, NJ, where she spent many years from childhood onward going for vacations. She thoroughly enjoyed time relaxing on the beach with family.

Anyone that knew Margaret, knew that she was very strong in her beliefs and was not afraid to express her thoughts. The most important aspect of her life was her religious faith. She was a devout practicing Catholic and she shared her faith with her entire family. She also spent many years teaching as a CCD teacher at St. Vincent dePaul Parish in Richboro, PA.

Margaret unfortunately was afflicted with Parkinson's Disease late in her life, but she did not let that stop her from doing what she wanted to do. She fought it every step of the way with it ultimately bringing her 85 years of life to an end.

Margarets belief in Jesus Christ as her Savior helped her throughout her life, especially during the last few years of her life. Her belief that she would be with the Lord left her with peace in her heart.

Relatives and friends are invited to Margaret's Life Celebration on Mon. Mar. 22, 2021 from 9:30 to 11:00 AM at Nativity of Our Lord, 605 W. Street Rd., Warminster, PA 18974.
