Margaret Mae Beers, nee Britton, of Steelville, Missouri passed away Friday, November 20, 2020 in her home at the age of 79 years and 11 months. She was born December 20, 1940 in Davisville, Missouri to Roy Estel Britton and Alice Mae Turnbough Britton. Margaret was united in marriage to Alfred Lavern Beers on November 11, 1956 in Cherryville and to this union three children were born.
Margaret worked alongside her husband, Al, for 25 years at their businesses, Spare Rib Inn, Al’s Hardware and Al’s Café where she enjoyed visiting with customers and serving the community. She also was employed at Convy Shoe, Briggs and Stratton and later on at San-Val where she retired.
Margaret was a faithful member of the Assembly of God Church where she was a greeter and sang in the choir for many years. She enjoyed Southern Gospel music and loved to sing and read. She also enjoyed rooting for the Cardinals and watching Wheel of Fortune. She was a volunteer for the Ministerial Alliance and the Food Pantry and looked forward to being involved in these ministries. Margaret was not only committed to her church, but to her community and her family.
