Margaret Violet Jennings Ludden Miller Davis went to be with her Lord and Saviour on May 27, 2009 in Hanford, California. She was born in the family home near Gage, Oklahoma. She grew up near Vici, Oklahoma.

Margaret married her first husband, Francis R. Ludden. They had three children and lived in Woodward until his death in 1945. In 1946, Margaret married Ernest Miller. They lived in Woodward until 1954 when they moved to a farm near Longdale, Oklahoma. In 1959, they moved to Weatherford, Oklahoma and bought a board home for college boys. In 1968, Ernest passed away. Margaret moved back to Woodward where she met and married James Davis. They lived in Woodward until his death. Margaret then moved to Sheridan Wyoming to be near her youngest daughter, Bessie Brewer. Margaret lived in Wyoming until 2002 when she moved to Lemoore California to live with her oldest daughter, Margarette Smith.

She was a member of St. Peter's Catholic Church in Lenoore, California, the St. Joseph League in Sheridan, Wyoming and the VFW Ladies Auxillary in Sheridan, Wyoming.

Margaret was preceded in death by her daughter Bessie Marie Brewer and granddaughter Candice Marie Brewer. Margaret is survived by her daughter Margarette Smith and her husband Ronald Smith of Lemoore, California and her son Lawrence A. Ludden and his wife, Susanne Ludden of Marlton, New Jersey, eight grandchildren, five great grandchildren; and one great, great grandchild.

Margaret with only an 8th grade education, made sure her three children had a college education so they could support themselves in life. She attended many classes and became a life long learner. As an adult, she learned to type, swim and even became a nurse's aide. She worked as both a nurse's aide and a professional cook. In her spare time she loved to sew, sewing many beautiful quilts. She volunteered for many years at the VA Hospital in Sheridan, Wyoming, where she was honored with a 1,000 hours volunteer pin.
