Margaret Forbord Obituary

Margaret Lee Evans Forbord, age 87, of Tullahoma, TN, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, March 19, 2024.  Born February 20, 1937 in Crestview, FL, she was the daughter of the late James Bowden Evans and Eva Nowling Evans.  Margaret was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 57 years, Seth David Forbord.  She is survived by her devoted daughters, Velinda McLaughlin and her husband John of Murfreesboro, and Monica Rappe of Tullahoma; her grandchildren, David Branch (Summer), Wesley Branch (Abigail), Eva Tyrell (Cole), and Laurel Paradise (Dave); great-grandchildren, August, Moses, and Clive Branch, Rosalyn and Emma Branch, Miller and Frankie Tyrell, Isabelle and Brianna Paradise; and sister Ruth Heaton of Crestview, FL.

Services will be held Friday, March 22 at Faith Lutheran Church.  Visitation is from 11:00 to 1:00, Funeral service is at 1:00pm, and burial will follow at Rose Hill Memorial Gardens.  Pastor Marty Nutter will officiate and flowers may be sent to Tullahoma Funeral Home or contributions may be made to Faith Lutheran Church or a charity of your choosing.

Margaret cherished her family and was at her happiest spending time with them.  She loved being a homemaker, was an accomplished seamstress and made many items for her home and clothes for her daughters when they were young.  She worked as a legal secretary, kindergarten teacher’s aide, and office manager for many years for Johnson Chiropractic. Her favorite “job” of 26 years was as a volunteer and manager of the Harton Hospital gift shop with all profits going to fund nursing scholarships.   Dave and Margaret moved from Crestview, FL to Tullahoma in 1965 and joined Faith Lutheran Church where they were both active members.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
