OBITUARY - MARGARET M. (RUBY) TINDLE

Margaret M. (RUBY) TINDLE passed away Monday, March 1, 2010 at Clarke County Hospital in Osceola, Iowa at the age of 89 years. She was born April 3, 1920 to B. B. and Winnie RUBY in Knowlton, Iowa. She grew up in Ringgold County and graduated from Diagonal High School in 1937. At the age of sixteen she met Cletus TINDLE of Diagonal. The high school sweethearts married on January 11, 1943. They were the parents of one daughter Cindy.

As a product of the Depression, Margaret was one who knew how to work hard. She was a secretary during World War II and while Cletus was in Chiropractic College in Davenport, Iowa. She moved with him to Osceola in 1950 and was a full time homemaker until the 1960s when she went back to work as a realtor. She was active in the Osceola Women's Club for many years and as a volunteer in the United Methodist Church.

Her greatest joy was as Grandmother to Jordan and Colin SMITH. She spent many hours cheering at their ball games and rarely missed any of their musical performances.

Margaret is survived by her husband Dr. Cletus TINDLE of Osceola, her daughter and son-in-law, Cindy and Jim SMITH of West Des Moines, her grandsons Colin and Jordan SMITH, nieces, Marilyn CHRISTENSEN, Pam HUITT, Sondra RUBY, and nephews John DAVISSON and Marlyn TINDLE.

Interment services will by 2:00 P.M., Thursday, March 4th at the Resthaven Mausoleum in West Des Moines. In Lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Clarke County Hospital or Hospice of Central Iowa in Osceola.

The family would like to thank Martha SNYDER who has gone above and beyond in providing care to Margaret and Doc. The family is also grateful to Karen JACKSON, Kris VOGEL, Tammy JACKSON, Holly JACKSON and Norma MOFFITT who have taken care of Margaret with so much kindness and allowed her to remain at home for a long time. A special thanks goes to the staff of the Clarke County Hospital Long Term Care Unit. Also the family thanks the many wonderful and faithful friends who continued to stop and visit with Margaret during her last years.
