Margaret Ann Coleman, 65, was reborn into eternal life at home on Saturday, August 31, 2019, surrounded by her family’s love. Margaret was born in Louisville, Kentucky to Joan Brocker and Jack Curley.
She was the first born of five children. Margaret grew up in Kentucky and moved to Oakland, CA in the early 70’s, eventually settling in New Rockford, ND. She ran numerous businesses throughout her life but the most memorable one was her thrift store.
Margaret will be greatly missed by many people. There was something so alluring and captivating about her. Everyone who spent quality time with her ended up loving her dearly. She had such grace from God that so many people could open up and share their deepest struggles with her. She showed so much compassion and comfort to everyone. She was a very religious and prayerful woman. The strongest prayer warrior. She had a great devotion to the Blessed Mother and was never ashamed to speak her mind and tell you about her faith.
She had a tremendous amount of creativity within her and it was her outlet. She enjoyed singing, dancing, writing, and art. The most cherished creativity was her fabulous storytelling. Many nieces and nephews fondly speak of her captivating stories that made their childhood full of wonder and magic.
She was the most loving of mothers. She always put her children first and always gave them anything they wanted or needed. Although she had five biological children, in reality she had so many more. She could give true motherly love to so many people that needed it. Many people call her mom.
Margaret was the richest woman in the world, not with money, but with what matters most. She was the most caring and non-judgmental person you could ever know. The most important piece of herself she left behind was the power of love and forgiveness.
Margaret is survived by her five children Sonya Williams, New Rockford, ND; Eric Williams, Bismarck, ND; Angela Seidt, Grand Forks, ND; Demetrius Coleman, CA; and Philomena Coleman (Jon Orchard), San Diego, CA; 22 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren, and her siblings Terri (Mike) Scott, Carrington, ND; Charles Edmonson (Marilee), New Rockford, ND; Joan Vera (Alberto), Peoria, AZ; Joy Moussly (Sameer), Roswell, GA.
