Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: May 17, 1919
Death: Apr. 11, 2014

Margaret was born the only child of Dallas merchant Edwin Burrus Doggett and his wife Lillian Smith.

She was a proud graduate of the Hockaday School for Girls 1937 class. Margaret tragically lost her parents at the early age of 19 when they were killed in an automobile accident in March 1939 while returning to Dallas after having visited her in Austin, Texas where she was a student at the University of Texas.

She was a member of the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority. After a Hockaday-sponsored tour of Europe, she and her classmates were part of an event which made history at the beginning of World War II. On September 3rd, 1939, the SS Athena was torpedoed and sunk by the Germans off the British coast and Margaret and her friends had to be rescued from lifeboats hours later as they drifted in the Atlantic. She married Trammel Crow in 1942.

As Trammell grew the business, Margaret excelled in her many roles as hostess extraordinaire, friend, civic leader, mother and wife. Together they attended State dinners at the White House as the guests of presidents John F. Kennedy through George Bush.

Margaret was also a member of the Highland Park United Methodist Church, the Junior League of Dallas, the Dallas Woman's Club, the Dallas Garden Club, the Founders Garden Club of Dallas, the Daughters of the American Colonists and the Daughters of the American Revolution.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Fred Trammel in 2009, her son, Robert Trammel in 2011 and an infant son in 1948.
