Margaret Loraine Southard

On Aug. 19, 2019, we lost our beloved wife, mother, grandma and GG (great-grandma). Loraine passed away at home in Burnt Ranch, Calif., at the age of 83 after a long battle with cancer.

She was born Aug. 9, 1936.

She is survived by her husband of 63 years, Gilmer Southard; her daughter Teresa Fork and husband Greg, her son Glenn Southard and daughter Ellen Caldwell and husband Larry. She leaves behind four grandchildren, Veronica Owens (Vincent), Ronald “Bubba” Hames (Natalie), Christina Gooch (Calvin), Michael Newman and fiancée Tanielle; and seven great-grandchildren, Ethan, Drake, Kayne, Johnny, Alana, Jay and Autumn. She is also survived by her sisters Barbara and Jolene, her brother Mack and numerous nieces and nephews.

She will be greatly missed by all.
