Obituary: Margaret Alice McLean Grayson
Margaret Alice McLean Grayson, born May 13, 1927 in Tucson, Arizona, passed away on December 2, 2016 in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Preceded in death by her parents, William and Rose Alice (Nicely) McLean; favorite Aunt Mamie; brothers Charles and William, Jr. and sister-in-law Marietta McLean.
Margaret spent her childhood in Tucson, graduating from Tucson High School where she met her future husband, Marshall Grayson. They married in 1946 in Tucson. After completing his time in the USMC, Marshall joined the telephone company and he and Margaret lived in Tucson, Phoenix and Denver. Margaret especially enjoyed their time in Denver, spending many hours at the Emily Griffith Opportunity School sewing, quilting, doing needlework, and making crafts. She was a very talented individual and many have been blessed by gifts of her handiwork. Margaret also loved her “pretties” — dolls, China teacups, glassware, and her beloved Beanie Babies. After retirement, the couple moved to Prescott where they lived happily for 29 years. Margaret lived the last two years and five months of her life at Mount St. Francis care center in Colorado Springs within eyesight of Alan and Susan’s home, where she got loving and competent care. Her husband faithfully spent each and every day by her side.
Margaret is survived by her husband of 70 years, Marshall Everett Grayson; son Marshall Alan (Susan); son William Paul (Holli); grandchildren Ryan, Skye (Kristi), B.K. (Rachel), Robyn, and Kevin (Tyana); and eight great-grandchildren; sister-in-law Earldene (Ed) Comstock; brother-in-law Bill (Nora) Grayson; cousin Catherine Cameron of Scotland and many nieces and nephews.
