Kearney resident, 91

KEARNEY - Margaret C. Lange, 91, of Kearney, formerly of Boston, died Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2013, at her son's home in Kearney from complications of Alzheimer's disease.

Graveside services will be at Puritan Lawn Cemetery in Peabody, Mass. Horner Lieske McBride & Kuhl Funeral and Cremation Services in Kearney is in charge of arrangements.

She was born Oct. 1, 1921, in Sackville, New Brunswick, Canada, to Herbert and Nina (Filmore) Johnson.

On Sept. 6, 1947, she married John W. Lange. He preceded her in death.

Survivors include her sons, Bruce Lange and his wife, Karen, of Laramie, Wyo., Paul Lange and his wife, Helen, of Kearney, Mark Lange and his wife, Kim, of Amherst, Mass., Donald Lange and his wife, Sandy, of Windsor, Colo.; Craig Lange and his wife, Bonnie, of Scotia, N.Y., and Brian Lange and his wife, Valerie, of Aston, Pa.; 15 grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren.

Her family immigrated to the United States and settled in the Boston area. She met her future husband, John, at the USO where she worked as a volunteer and he became a soldier.

As a young woman, Margaret received Christ as her Savior, which changed her life forever. Her husband later became an American Baptist pastor and Margaret faithfully served the church in many capacities.

Margaret is fondly remembered for her quick wit and excellent vocabulary skills. She loved to play Scrabble and canasta and enjoyed visiting with people of all ages and backgrounds. She also enjoyed watching sports of any type, and was very pleased when girls were allowed the same athletic opportunities as the boys in the school systems.

Margaret loved her family and they love her.

In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by one brother.
